Doctor Who: The Glamour Chronicles: Royal Blood by Una McCormack (book review).

‘Royal Blood’ by Una McCormack is the first of the trilogy about the ‘Glamour Chronicles’ featuring the 12th Doctor and Clara. Here, they are mistaken first for envoys and then, in the Doctor’s case, as a holy man who might have words of wisdom to impart. It’s another random landing for the TARDIS on the […]

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

TV novelisations have become quite rare in an age when most TV series are more likely to have a DVD or even a blu-ray release now. Much of this is down to the TV companies being able to do them economically to tie-in with them being shown on the box and, in part, because fewer […]

Doctor Who: The Legends Of Ashilor by James Goss, Robert Llewellyn, Jenny T. Colgan and Justin Richards (book review).

‘The Legends Of Ashildr’ is a very quick and clever way to cash in on the interests around this character Ashildr, created for series 9 of the new ‘Doctor Who’ TV series. If this sounds cynical, it isn’t as anything that encourages people to read is fine by me and there is nothing bad in […]

UNIT: Extinction by Andrew Smith and Matt Fitton (CD review).

‘UNIT: Extinction’ is the first boxed set presented by Big Finish after they got the licence to use the characters in new ‘Doctor Who’. Let’s start with the positives. It’s great that this is integrated with the TV series and is marvellous to hear the characters of Kate Lethbridge-Stewart (Jemma Redgrave), the scientific officer, daughter […]

2015’s ‘Doctor Who’ whimsical hardback cash-in title is ‘The Time Lord Letters’ in which Justin Richards imagines letters written by the Doctor and some of his friends concerning events across his personal history.

Torchwood: Fall To Earth by James Goss (CD review).

‘Fall To Earth’ sees the return of the amazing Torchwood executive assistant. Yes, Ianto is back and he’s in superb form. It’s been a long cold lonely time and Ianto was rather dramatically and not without many a tear killed off in the otherwise excellent ‘Children Of Earth’. This story is obviously set before that.
