Doctor Who: The Early Adventures: An Ordinary Life by Matt Fitton (CD review).

For a life less ordinary, try travelling with the Doctor. Steven and Sara have some experience but nothing prepares them for ‘An Ordinary Life’ in 1950s Britain. It’s a time of great change, social upheaval and immigration of workers to do vital jobs in a country still recovering from World War Two. Jamaican born Audrey […]

Doctor Who: Dark Eyes 3 by Matt Fitton (CD review).

The One-Day War Doctor returns in an impressive adventure ‘Dark Eyes 3’. Previously, the eighth Doctor has travelled with the unusual companion, Molly O’Sullivan, through time and space and an interesting set of accents. Paul McGann’s non-cuddly but truly classic Doctor in every sense is in direct conflict with the Master who is newly fledged […]

Arrow Season 2 Soundtrack by Blake Neely (CD review).

‘Arrow’ is an action adventure television series based on the DC Comics character, the Green Arrow. A crime-fighting vigilante who, as his name suggests, is pretty handy with a bow and arrow. I was expecting a dynamic soundtrack to go with this series but at the end of several plays of the CD I felt […]

Doctor Who: The Widow’s Assassin by Nev Fountain (CD review).

Frustrated by ‘Trial Of A Time Lord’ and the outcome for Perpigiliam Brown, then ‘The Widow’s Assassin’ will put things right for you. In time, all things can be changed and it’s about time the Sixth Doctor found out what happened to Peri who was such a loyal companion to him. This is an interesting […]

Blake’s 7 Liberator Chronicles Volume 7 by Simon Guerrier, Eddie Robson and James Swallow (CD review).

The ‘Blake’s 7 Liberator Chronicles’ are similar to the ‘Doctor Who Companion Chronicles’. They have limited cast and quite a lot of narration but work as enhanced audio books with music and effects that compliment the action and cannot really be compared with the classic audio adventures. However, as listeners of those ‘Chronicles’ know, these […]
