Of course, she doesn’t actually write the book as the Melody Malone adventure must have been penned by Amy Pond, one of the books forming the handbook […]

Doctor Who: The Highlanders by Gerry Davies (cd review).

Another day, another novelisation of a classic ‘Doctor Who’ story. This is slightly different. It’s the first story to feature Jamie McCrimmon and ‘The Highlanders’ is also marked out as one of the series that is missing from the archives. There is only an off-air recording of the soundtrack with linking narration by Frazer Hines […]

Tron Uprising by Joseph Trapanese (soundtrack review)

Cartoons have come a long way since I was a lad. Gone are the paper-thin plots, average animation and soundtracks that could have been Casio keyboard demos and replaced with thoughtful storylines, animation work that will knock your socks off and soundtracks that are so good they deserve their own album. ‘Tron Uprising’, a cartoon […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (soundtrack review).

When reviewing any piece of work, I do my best to take it in isolation and not let related materials influence my judgement. I’m afraid with ‘The Hobbit’ soundtrack, that’s just not possible so expect lots of references to ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ to follow. I’m sure I don’t need to go into the […]
