Doctor Who: The Early Adventures: The Doctor’s Tale by Marc Platt (CD review).

A story of regicide, rebellion and friendship, ‘The Doctor’s Tale’ is one of ‘The New Early Adventures’ that attempt to recreate the stories of the classic doctors in the 1960s. This one is a pure historical which covers a lot of ground taking in many elements including politics, superstitions and moments in history. ‘The Doctor’s […]

Frankenstein (Special Edition) by Mary Shelley, dramatised by Jonathan Barnes (CD review).

We all think we know the story of ‘Frankenstein’ and it almost feels wrong to attempt yet another version when so many are floating round already but the audio experience is something different. This new adaptation by Jonathan Barnes takes all the elements of the horrific tale of animating dead body parts and shows us […]

LalaLand have certainly done a wonderful thing bringing this one out on CD. Reading the 24 page […]

The Night Of The Triffids by Simon Clark (CD review).

I’m a big fan of John Wyndham’s work and it was with interest/trepidation that I listened to the drama ‘The Night Of The Triffids’, a full-sequel to the original ‘The Day Of The Triffids’. In 1981, the BBC showed a TV series based on the inventive book which made us look at our houseplants in […]

Leverage by Joseph LoDuca (CD review)

Although technically, the TV series ‘Leverage’ is outside our remit because it is a con game in the real world, It is still worth recommending watching it if you want a change from our genre. What it does have which should appeal to all you soundtrack music lovers reading here is a great selection of […]

From Inside by Gary Numan Special Edition (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) by Gary Numan & Ade Fenton  (CD review).

If I could have gone back in time and talked to my 16 year-old self and told him that I would be reviewing a Gary Numan album I would have been blown away. Gary Numan has an incredibly long history of producing distinctive and dramatic music. Critical success has not always met with commercial success […]
