Doctor Who: The Sixth Doctor – The Last Adventure (CD review).

This is it then, the final story for Sixie. ‘Doctor Who: The Sixth Doctor – The Last Adventure’ is a four-hour extravaganza that sees out the Sixth Doctor in appropriate style. Four companions and four hours of tall tales is a good way to signal the retirement of Number 6 (not that one). It’s not […]

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, […]

Doctor Who: Four Doctors by Paul Cornell and Neil Edwards (graphic novel review).

A couple of weeks back I watched ‘The Three Doctors’ again, which was originally aired before I was born, but I’ve seen at some point in the murky past. 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’. […]

Doctor Who: The Glamour Chronicles: Deep Time by Trevor Baxendale (book review).

The final novel in ‘The Glamour Chronicles’ trilogy is ‘Deep Time’ by Trevor Baxendale. Set in space and time itself, so altogether we have the three tropes of the Who-verse. Earth, another planet and deep space. It’s only missing a history episode to fill up the quota. Just remember guys, Douglas Adams never let the […]
