Doctor Who: Remembrance Of The Daleks Special Edition by Ben Aaronovitch   (DVD review)

Of Sylvester McCoy’s run as the Doctor, ‘Remembrance Of The Daleks’ has to be one of my favourites. There are a lot of contributing factors to this. It was nearly the 25th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’ and it returns to the roots of the first story in 1963, about a week after the first regeneration, […]

I like all the ‘Doctor Who’ crossover episodes, so I was keen to see what Paul Cornell has devised for his five-part comic event ‘Four Doctors’. […]
