Counter Measures: Series 2 Box Set by Matt Fitton, James Goss, Mark Wright, Cavan Scott, John Dorney  (CD review).

There are four episodes in this new series of ‘Counter Measures’ and the worse thing is, that like many a box set, it’s all over far too soon. For those arriving in the 60s, in a slightly slow union jacked mini, this team were originally part of the Sylvester McCoy story ‘Remembrance Of The Daleks’. […]

Doctor Who: The Lady Of Mercia by Paul Magrs (CD review).

There’s a little local difficulty on the campus of Frodsham University. It’s 1983 and, with a big conference coming up on the warrior Queen Æthelfrid, history Professor John Bleak (Anthony Howell) is anxious to make sure it all goes off smoothly but the students are revolting. With departments about to be slashed and no one […]

Doctor Who: The Rescue by Ian Marter (CD review).

Maureen O’Brien, who played the companion Vicki, reads the 1987 novelisation by Ian Marter of ‘The Rescue’ originally written by David Whitaker for the TV. This is mainly memorable for the introduction of Vicki as a replacement for Susan. In changing times, it’s always reassuring to see a familiar face before we have to get […]

Doctor Who: Destiny Of The Doctor Trouble In Paradise by Nev Fountain (CD review).

When Doctor Number Six comes along, we know he must have the marvellous Peri as his companion and it’s the ‘Destiny Of The Doctor’ to find ‘Trouble In Paradise’. Mel would be OK but I think the Sixth Doctor is defined by Peri, at least in the TV incarnation. Nicola Bryant narrates the story in […]

Doctor Who: Plague Of The Cybermen (11th Doctor book) by Justin Richards (CD review).

A timely release, ‘Plague Of The Cybermen’ features the dulcet tones of David Warner who has cracked through the glass walls and into mainstream ‘Doctor Who’. He’s an old hand with plenty of Big Finish material under his belt and he’s even been an ‘Unbound Doctor’ in their range. When the Doctor arrives on a […]

Doctor Who: Special Releases: 1: Voyage To Venus by Jonathan Morris (audio-CD review).

With the opportune arrival of the Sixth Doctor into the lives of Jago & Litefoot, it’s time for some special intergalactic adventures. Time for a ‘Voyage To Venus’. In line with their origin in Victorian London, it is fitting and rather nice that their adventure reminds us of the early days of Science Fiction. With […]

Doctor Who: Destiny Of The Doctor 5. Smoke And Mirrors by Steve Lyons (CD review).

With Tegan once again dressed for work, it’s no surprise that the TARDIS is once again not on time for her shift. Her disgruntlement at the Doctor’s delight in the Edwardian fairground they have actually arrived in is somewhat ungruntled by the discovery that Houdini is appearing. Apparently she’s a fan but there’s a gypsy […]
