Doctor Who: 1963: The Assassination Games by John Dorney (CD review).

It’s November 1963 and a familiar figure appears in the London underground and saves ‘Chunky’ Gilmore’s life. It’s the Umbrellas Man himself, the Seventh Doctor. The new Counter-Measures team and, that’s a loosely used word here, are attempting to get to the bottom of a curious assassination of a soon to be disgraced government minister. […]

The Raymond P. Cusick Signature Collection (book review).

After ‘The Barry Newbery Collection’ last year, I did wonder if Telos would continue with these looks at production design for ‘Doctor Who’. With this one, ‘The Raymond P. Cusick Signature Collection’ we come to the earliest and most significant contributor to the TV series. I think you know who I mean from the title […]

Robert Holmes: A Life In Words by Richard Molesworth (book review).

Is Robert Holmes your favourite ‘Doctor Who’ writer? For me he’s definitely up there on the High Council, alongside Castellan Davies, Cardinals Baker and Martin, Chancellor Whitaker and Keeper of the Matrix Dicks. Would he be President? Probably, because, rather delightfully, ‘Doctor Who’ was Robert Holmes’s favourite show. Not only to work on, but maybe […]

The Television Companion: Volume One (The Unofficial And Unauthorised Guide To Doctor Who) by David J. Howe and Stephen James Walker (book review).

Don’t know what to get the ‘Doctor Who’ fan in your life for Christmas? Replica scarf, as modelled by Ingrid Oliver in ‘The Day Of The Doctor’? Official John Hurt War Doctor bandolier (may not exist)? David Bradley anniversary Hartnell whiskey glass? Or perhaps they need a good grounding in the original series, in which […]

Destiny Of The Doctor: The Time Machine by Matt Filton (CD review).

Ooh, Timey-wimey! I fell in love with ‘Destiny Of The Doctor: The Time Machine’ and it wrapped itself around me until I screamed. Never drive anywhere whooping at the CD player, it’s not good for your health. The Doctor, who is travelling alone this time, arrives at an Oxford lab to see just who has […]

Doctor Who: Death’s Deal (Destiny Of The Doctor 10) by Darren Jones (CD review).

It’s the turn of the Tenth Doctor to follow his destiny and down on the plant of Death’s Deal, all is not well. The Doctor and Donna receive a distress call from the surface but, when they arrive to help, they don’t get any from the visiting tourists. Apparently, these are old messages that circle […]

The Day Of The Doctor: an appraisal by: GF Willmetts.

With all build-up for the past month, it would have been disappointing had ‘The Day Of The Doctor’ been a failure. It wasn’t. With the people in 94 countries watching it at the same time, are there any surprises for anyone? That being the case, I can skip the synopsis and go on to reaction. […]
