Jago & Litefoot Forever review

Following the sad passing of Trevor Baxter, Big Finish had to shelve plans for a fourteenth boxset of Jago & Litefoot (and possibly more) and have released Jago & Litefoot Forever to both celebrate Trevor and draw a line under the series, left hanging at the end of the previous boxset. To do so, writer...

Doctor Who Fourth Doctor Adventures: Series 7 Volume 2 review

Available as either a boxset or four individual instalments, the seventh series of Fourth Doctor Adventures concludes with Volume 2, and it’s four more hugely entertaining stories for Tom Baker’s Doctor in the company of Leela (Louise Jameson). Justin Richards starts with The Shadow Of London. It’s the 1940s and London seems unusually quiet, and...

Doctor Who: Lure Of The Nomad review

Big Finish has had a reorganisation of its Doctor Who main range, with each Doctor now having their own producer. In the case of the Colin Baker’s sixth Doctor, the producer is now John Ainsworth, who also directed The Lure Of The Nomad, a story written by Matthew J Elliott. Matthew is presumably used to...

Torchwood: Believe boxset review

While Big Finish have been releasing Torchwood audios since 2015, Believe is the first to reunite the original television line-up with a three-part tale rooted in the latter part of the second series. The story focuses on Owen’s suspicions about “The Church of the Outsiders”, a religious organisation who believe that our destiny belongs in...

Blake’s 7: Crossfire part 3 review

In this third set of four full-cast stories, Big Finish brings to a close the Crossfire sequence of Blake’s 7 tales set in a galactic civil war: Servalan (Jacqueline Pearce) vs the former President (Hugh Fraser). Range producer/script editor/director John Ainsworth has used these stories to good effect so far, weaving a large-scale story into...
