Doctor Who: Starlight Robbery stars Sylvester McCoy
0

Reviewed: Starlight Robbery

Following on from the first tale of the Seventh Doctor trilogy Persuasion, which was a serious and sombre affair to start the Doctor, Elizabeth Klein and Will Arrowsmith on their journey together; the second story, or act, if you will, is a far more of a romp in comparison. Starlight Robbery finds the newest TARDIS…

Scream of the Shalka DVD Review

It may not be much of a confession, but I’m a bit obsessed by the idea of animated Doctor Who. Although I consider the fan-produced anime that appeared on YouTube to perhaps be the ultimate cartoon-style adventure, I’ve been particularly thrilled by the recent reconstructions of classic, incomplete serials.

I started watching Doctor Who in February 1974.  I was three years old.  Pulled in by the electric thrill…

Reviewed: Prisoners of Fate

Prisoners of Fate certainly has a lot to live up to. It’s not only the last story of the year in the Fifth Doctor’s trilogy of plays for Big Finish but it also address storylines that have been ongoing since 2010 when Nyssa rejoined the TARDIS after many years away from her friends. And hasn’t…

Fury From The Deep 9

042 Fury From The Deep

The title of this 1968 serial alone sounds suitably scary, so it’s pleasing to state that this is one Doctor Who ‘classic’ that just about lives up to its name; with the dangers and horror on a par with the rest of the stories that surround it (Yeti and Cybermen and Ice Warriors, oh my!). At times,…
