Doctor Who – Short Trips 7.08 ‘The British Invasion’ review

Wendy Padbury narrates this charming tale which brings the TARDIS and her crew, the Second Doctor, highlander Jamie McCrimmon and the futuristic astrophysicist Zoe Herriot to London’s South Bank in 1951, for the Festival of Britain. The first quarter of an hour of the play’s unhurried forty-two minutes is made up of some delightful character...

Doctor Who: The Third Doctor Adventures Volume 3 review

With the third boxset in this range, Big Finish is now delivering entirely authentic third Doctor stories hitting the mark in every respect, and Tim Treloar has now mastered Jon Pertwee almost entirely.

In their second set of stories blending so-called classic Doctors with new series monsters, Big Finish has mixed things up to an extent. There are still four stories, but a slight change to the set of Doctors, and one monster appearing twice. First up John Dorney brings us Night of the Vashta Nerada, bringing the...

Doctor Who: Flashpoint review

The latest Doctor Who Short Trips from Big Finish sees the welcome return of Sheridan Smith as Lucie Miller, reading Andrew Smith’s short story Flashpoint. It’s a clever story with a clever title – not just a crisis point, but also a good description of an alien world Cerberin, famous for its violent storms, visible...
