Doctor Who: The Sixth Doctor – The Last Adventure (CD review).

This is it then, the final story for Sixie. ‘Doctor Who: The Sixth Doctor – The Last Adventure’ is a four-hour extravaganza that sees out the Sixth Doctor in appropriate style.

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.
