Strangers Things 2 episode 6 review: The Spy

We left poor, sweet Will Byers writhing around on the ground as soldiers attempted to burn the demogorgon into submission, and things aren’t looking too good for the lad in episode six. With three episodes left, things are hotting up (pun intended) for the entire gang, and The Spy is another strong episode of this...

Blake’s 7 Crossfire Part 1 review

Blake’s 7 are back on audio in the form of Vila, Avon, Cally, Tarrant, Zen, Orac and Dayna, with Yasmin Bannerman now cast in place of Josette Simon, who declined to return to the role. This boxset marks the start of a set under the banner of Crossfire, and does a good job of introducing...

  This 8-parter doesn’t hang about, with both protagonists well establlished in the first episode using a Peep Show narrative styling.

Doctor Who review: The Blood Furnace

Starring the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Mel (who has re-joined the TARDIS after her travels with Glitz), Big Finish’s Doctor Who story The Blood Furnace brings the companions home to Earth and relatively close to their respective times as they materialise at a Merseyside shipyard in 1991. It soon becomes a rather personal trip for Mel too, as...
