Companion Piece: Women Celebrate The Humans, Aliens And Tin Dogs Of Doctor Who edited by L.M. Myles and Liz Barr (book review).

‘Fear makes companions of all of us’ is one of the many really good lines in season 1 of ‘Doctor Who’ and undoubtedly one of the most telling. After being kidnapped/accidentally thrown back to the year 100,000BC, only to then end up on Skaro, Ian and Barbara learn the hard way about what life is […]

Zoë (Wendy Padbury) and Jamie (Frazer Hines) are bemused to meet a man with a multi-coloured coat who not only calls himself the Doctor but seems to know a lot about them. But where is their Doctor, the funny little clown with a mop of black hair? We should not be too surprised as this […]

Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor Adventures: Suburban Hell by Alan Barnes (CD review).

Listeners of a certain age will quickly catch on to the inspiration behind ‘Suburban Hell’ but the premise and inspiration are one thing and the slick transference into science fantasy quite another. Hell really is other people and truly this is the dinner party of and from Hell. Belinda (Katie Wix) has run out of […]

Space Helmet For A Cow: The Mad, True Story Of Doctor Who Volume 1 (1963-1989) by Paul Kirkley (book review).

I almost didn’t make it through the whole of ‘Space Helmet For A Cow’. Paul Kirkley’s writing style in the first chapter was at best consistent and at worst highly irritating. However, I am glad that I persevered as the book is actually an entertaining and informative history of ‘classic’ ‘Doctor Who’ production with a […]

Doctor Who: City Of Death by Douglas Adams and James Goss (book review).

‘City Of Death’ is regularly seen as a highlight of the SF show’s original run, receiving the highest viewing figures of any ‘Doctor Who’ story ever, though industrial action over at ITV may have nudged up the numbers a bit. ‘City Of Death’ also regularly ranks highly in ‘Best Ever’ polls for the best ever […]

The Unofficial Doctor Who Big Book Of Lists by Cameron K. McEwan and Andrew Skilleter  (book review)

‘The Unofficial Doctor Who Big Book Of Lists’ by Cameron K. McEwan shouldn’t be confused with ‘Doctor Who: The Book Of Lists’ by Justin Richards and Andrew Martin. After all, the latter was published in 1997 and since then we’ve had a whole ten years of new ‘Doctor Who’ to enjoy so there should be […]

Jago & Litefoot Series 9 by Jonathan Morris, Justin Richards, Simon Barnard, Paul Morris  (CD review)

If you can’t quite believe that ‘Jago & Litefoot’ has made it to Series 9 then join me in the gobsmacked department. Jago (Christopher Benjamin) and Litefoot (Trevor Baxter) have charmed the Big Finish viewers with the combination of a charismatic pair of actors who have outgrown their original characters and power through these boxed […]
