With the opportune arrival of the Sixth Doctor into the lives of Jago & Litefoot, it’s time for some special intergalactic adventures. Time for a ‘Voyage To Venus’.

Doctor Who: Destiny Of The Doctor 5. Smoke And Mirrors by Steve Lyons (CD review).

With Tegan once again dressed for work, it’s no surprise that the TARDIS is once again not on time for her shift. Her disgruntlement at the Doctor’s delight in the Edwardian fairground they have actually arrived in is somewhat ungruntled by the discovery that Houdini is appearing. Apparently she’s a fan but there’s a gypsy […]

This isn’t an audio book. Much better than that, it’s audio drama, a relatively rare thing these days. The BBC produces a considerable output of audio drama with plays broadcast on a daily basis and there are also facilities in Ireland for doing the same.

This album collects tracks from some of director Ridley Scott’s finest films and, with just one or two, you’re not going to get an in-depth look at each feature in isolation but rather a glimpse into how music has helped the director in his […]

It’s a fairly relentless soundtrack that seemed to […]

DaVinci’s Demons (main title theme) by Bear McCreary

To call this an album is possibly a bit generous as it’s just one one-minute track from the new TV series. There will be a full album released by the prolific Bear McCreary later on this year but for now we’ll have to make do with the main title theme song. While short, this theme […]
