UNIT Revisitations review

As the title of this latest (seventh) UNIT boxset from Big Finish suggests, this collection of stories is about things we’ve met before.

Star Cops: Mother Earth Part 2 review

The second series of Big Finish’s Star Cops audios takes the threat posed by the Mother Earth terror group into unexpected new directions, as the tendrils of the anti-space colonisation conspiracy introduced in series one are revealed to reach even further than Nathan Spring and his team had suspected.

Torchwood: God Among Us Part 1 review

What will immediately strike many listeners picking up this latest Torchwood boxset from Big Finish (the four-story God Among Us Part 1) is how rich, layered and intricate the post-TV mythology of the Torchwood canon has become. With few concessions to anyone tuning in for the first time, this is not the most straightforward of...
