This guy has serious talent and it shows through again. If you don’t know anything about the film you can read a […]

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. It’s great that this is integrated with the TV series and is marvellous to hear the characters of Kate Lethbridge-Stewart (Jemma Redgrave), the scientific officer, daughter […]

Torchwood: Fall To Earth by James Goss (CD review).

‘Fall To Earth’ sees the return of the amazing Torchwood executive assistant. Yes, Ianto is back and he’s in superb form. It’s been a long cold lonely time and Ianto was rather dramatically and not without many a tear killed off in the otherwise excellent ‘Children Of Earth’. This story is obviously set before that.

Psy rocks it Daddy-style (because Gangnam wasn’t enough).

That mighty son of K-pop, Psy, is now rocking it Daddy-style, because Gangnam-style wasn’t enough. Catchy? Check. Silly? Check. Kind of rock-y? Check. K-pop stars, start your motors, because it’s time for some Psy-Fi! Now, how long before some South Korean-types do a version of this taking the &^*( out of the North Korean regime, I […]

John Williams’s Film Music by Emilio Audissino (book review).

As famous as John Williams is, there are only three books about him and they aren’t even in English. As such, Audissino wrote a degree thesis on him, before the next stage of […]
