Doctor Who Companion Chronicles: Return Of The Rocket Men by Matt Fitton (CD review).

Peter Purves returns to the ‘Companion Chronicles’ as companion Steven. Recalling his days as a rocket pilot, he describes his encounter with an antagonist from a previous First Doctor Chronicle. This is a clever story that pitches a melancholic Steven against the evil and deadly Van Cleef (Tim Treloar), one of the Rocket Men. Steven […]

Doctor Who: Pirate Planet by Douglas Adams (CD review).

‘Pirate Planet’ is a surprisingly good adventure with quite a variety of elements that stand out. It has several layers of both characters and plot with some extreme outfits, sadly not visible other than on the CD cover. There is no escaping that this is written by Douglas Adams, it’s almost a plot try out […]

Doctor Who: The Gunfighters by Donald Cotton (CD review).

Get the spittoon at the ready, for this rather wonderful audio of ‘The Gunfighters’, a First Doctor TV story from 1963 is not only a gem, it’s a phlegm-athon (I think I might coin that word). Shane Rimmer gives his all as he tell the story of the Gunfight At The OK Corral as seen […]

Doctor Who: The Auntie Matter by Jonathan Morris (CD review).

If you are a fan of Bertie Wooster, then look away now. PG Wodehouse may or may not be rotating slowly in his box but here is another pastiche of the great comedies of the 1920s. ‘The Auntie Matter’ for those non-Wodehouse fans is a significant title as there are as many Aunties as Wooster […]

Doctor Who: The Daemons by Guy Leopold (DVD review).

If ever there was an archetypal Jon Pertwee/Doctor Who story, then surely it must be ‘The Daemons’. Yet oddly, the story is something more akin to the 1958 ‘Quatermass And The Pit’ than the usual ‘Who’. They both share similarities in the discovery at an excavation of demons but the source of them, an alien […]
