The Twin Dilemma

Colin Baker’s tenure in Doctor Who is well documented. It wasn’t the easiest TARDIS residency, being saddled with some of the poorest stories of the show’s history as well as being given the costume from hell. Looking back with the benefit if hindsight, it seems as if they were trying to oust him before he…

Leviathan Cover

Another cover from Big Finish’ Lost Stories series of audio dramas has been released – Leviathan is one of several Doctor Who stories lined up for production for the original season 23 when the show was placed on 18 month hiatus and the original scripts replaced with Trial of a Time Lord. Set for release…

Blink Reviewed

Stranded TARDIS-less in 1969, the Doctor communicates via DVD (and notes under wallpaper) with Sally Sparrow, a twenty-something living in London, 2007.

The Pulse: Gridlock

Black Scrolls stalwarts Steve Preston and Gareth Kavanagh unravel Gridlock like a kitten with a ball of wool… Gareth: Gridlock. Hmmm. Well, a simple little tale but probably my favourite of the New Earth offerings to date. Steve: That isn’t difficult, there are only two, and the other one is like something out of Season…

Evolution of the Daleks Reviewed

With a reverse-Davros cliffhanger (that’s half-man half-Dalek, but the other way around) and a super New York Depression-era setting, Daleks in Manhattan promised to be the fantastic first part of a fantastic two parter. So did Evolution of the Daleks deliver? Kids up and down the country were thrilled (or filled with fear) by the…
