Now We Are Six Hundred: A Collection Of Time Lord Verse by James Goss and illustrated by Russell T Davies (book review).

‘Now We Are Six Hundred’ is a book of poetry by James Goss (Big Finish, the universe) and illustrated by the hitherto unknown as an artist Russell T. Davies (BBC, Channel 4, the universe also) is a thing to be welcomed. I’m pretty sure there has never been a poetry book although I’m sure someone […]

Doctor Who: City Of Death by James Goss (book review).

TV novelisations have become quite rare in an age when most TV series are more likely to have a DVD or even a blu-ray release now. Much of this is down to the TV companies being able to do them economically to tie-in with them being shown on the box and, in part, because fewer […]

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. […]

Doctor Who: City Of Death by Douglas Adams and James Goss (book review).

‘City Of Death’ is regularly seen as a highlight of the SF show’s original run, receiving the highest viewing figures of any ‘Doctor Who’ story ever, though industrial action over at ITV may have nudged up the numbers a bit. ‘City Of Death’ also regularly ranks highly in ‘Best Ever’ polls for the best ever […]

Doctor Who: A History Of The Universe In 100 Objects by James Goss and Steve Tribe (book review).

‘Doctor Who: A History Of The Universe In 100 Objects’ is a curious book that tells the history of the ‘Doctor Who’ universe, a little different to our own, via a selection of items as obvious and esoteric as you might expect. The result is an often enjoyable read that contains much irreverent information. It’s […]

Counter Measures: Series 2 Box Set by Matt Fitton, James Goss, Mark Wright, Cavan Scott, John Dorney  (CD review).

There are four episodes in this new series of ‘Counter Measures’ and the worse thing is, that like many a box set, it’s all over far too soon. For those arriving in the 60s, in a slightly slow union jacked mini, this team were originally part of the Sylvester McCoy story ‘Remembrance Of The Daleks’. […]
