Doctor Who: Pirate Planet by Douglas Adams (CD review).

‘Pirate Planet’ is a surprisingly good adventure with quite a variety of elements that stand out. It has several layers of both characters and plot with some extreme outfits, sadly not visible other than on the CD cover. There is no escaping that this is written by Douglas Adams, it’s almost a plot try out […]

Doctor Who: The Gunfighters by Donald Cotton (CD review).

Get the spittoon at the ready, for this rather wonderful audio of ‘The Gunfighters’, a First Doctor TV story from 1963 is not only a gem, it’s a phlegm-athon (I think I might coin that word). Shane Rimmer gives his all as he tell the story of the Gunfight At The OK Corral as seen […]

Argo: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (album review)

Providing the score for Ben Affleck’s ‘Argo’, the critically acclaimed tale of a CIA plan to remove six diplomats from Iran during a hostage crisis in the 1970s may be a daunting task to some. However, for Alexandre Desplat who has a remarkable pedigree of soundtracks on his resume, including ‘The Queen’ and ‘Girl With […]

Call Of Duty: Black Ops II Original Soundtrack by Jack Wall   (album review)

The main theme is composed by Reznor, giving the soundtrack a bit of name value but aside from the opening track which is pretty amazing and the orchestral version of it, the majority of the album is written by Jack Wall. Mozart’s ‘Symphony No. 40 In G Minor’ does also feature at the mid-way point […]

Doctor Who: The Auntie Matter by Jonathan Morris (CD review).

If you are a fan of Bertie Wooster, then look away now. PG Wodehouse may or may not be rotating slowly in his box but here is another pastiche of the great comedies of the 1920s. ‘The Auntie Matter’ for those non-Wodehouse fans is a significant title as there are as many Aunties as Wooster […]
