Time in Office (Doctor Who Audio) review

Once a year, Big Finish mixes up the main range trilogies with a two-disc release of four separate stories, generally with a single Doctor/ companion team.

Big Finish Terrahawks – series 3 review

Since its revival in 2015, Terrahawks – the audio continuation of Gerry Anderson and Christopher Burr’s 1980’s puppet show – has delivered two impressive series packed full of entertaining call backs, appallingly bad puns and some not-so-subtle digs at the wider Anderson universe.

Doctor Who Subterranea review

After last month’s ghostly goings on at Malkin Place, the fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Romana (Lalla Ward) are back in space on a new planet, and in Jonathan Morris’s Subterranea, they are actually inside the planet’s crust. Packed with imagination, Jonathan Morris paints a world where the human inhabitants live inside so-called Drill-towns, desperate...
