Doctor Who: Survival: music by Dominic Glyn   (CD review)

It felt rather weird having a CD from the near beginning of ‘Doctor Who’ with the Daleks and then this one, ‘Doctor Who: Survival’ by Dominic Glyn from the end of the original run together, although the release date for each was weeks apart. You couldn’t get more of a contrast in how composers had […]

Doctor Who: The Daleks: music by Tristram Cary  (CD review)

‘Doctor Who: The Daleks’ is the original music in episode order from the second ‘Doctor Who’ story as composed by Tristram Cary. As such, much of these musical pieces are snippets between dialogue. Unlike modern day (am I actually calling today ‘modern’ 54 years later?), the music rarely if ever overlapped the talking. If you’re […]

Now We Are Six Hundred: A Collection Of Time Lord Verse by James Goss and illustrated by Russell T Davies (book review).

‘Now We Are Six Hundred’ is a book of poetry by James Goss (Big Finish, the universe) and illustrated by the hitherto unknown as an artist Russell T. Davies (BBC, Channel 4, the universe also) is a thing to be welcomed. I’m pretty sure there has never been a poetry book although I’m sure someone […]

Doctor Who: Paper Dolls by Ben Morris, Simon Guerrier and Christel Dee (book review).

In many respects, ‘Doctor Who: Paper Dolls’ is trying to hit several targets. With the introduction, Christel Dee suggests using the information from the pictures in this book as guidance in cosplay and how to make charity shops your favourite places to visit to find the kinds of clothes you can modify cheaply. As the […]

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Volume 7 – War Of Gods by Nick Abadzis, Giorgia Sposito and Elonora Carlini  (graphic novel review)

‘War Of Gods’ is the conclusion to the story about Anubis which started in the previous volume, ‘Sins Of The Father’. The writers are Nick Abadzis and James Peaty with artwork by Giorgia Sposito and Warren Pleece. It has a bonus adventure from year 3. There is a lot to juggle here with the Doctor […]

Counting The Regenerations: a thought by: GF Willmetts,

There’s been a lot of counting as what number of regenerations have passed with ‘Doctor Who’, confused somewhat when the John Hurt War Doctor regeneration appeared a couple years back. However, the Peter Capaldi Doctor regeneration is the first of a new 13 cycle and he also used one of his regenerative cycles to repair […]

Doctor Girl   :  another time by: GF Willmetts

Considering how long the promo and the number of repeats of the announcement of a new Doctor, it barely got 30 seconds on the 6:30pm BBC News. No interview. Nothing from new showrunner Chris Chibnall. It was barely a footnote. Even pointing out that there are female leads in recent films seems a poor choice […]

The identity of the new Doctor was revealed on BBC One after the Men’s Wimbledon Final today (Sunday 16th July 2017 if you’re reading this after the fact). As we reported earlier in the year, the Thirteenth Time Lord taking over from Peter Capaldi, will indeed be a female. New head writer Chris Chibnall (taking […]
