In this week’s episode we look at two Fifth Doctor and Nyssa stories from the Big Finish Doctor Who Main Range. First it’s the four story anthology offering, Circular Time. Then we examine Renaissance of the Daleks. Find out what we liked and didn’t like in these two offerings.
Plus, we look at some news of the week, including another trailer for the upcoming series 10.
In this week’s podcast we revisit one of our favorite stories, City of Death. But, this time it’s for a review of the novelization of the classic TV story, written by James Goss, from the story by Douglas Adams and David Fisher. We compare the treatment and discuss it’s transformation from on-screen gem to book form.
In this week’s show we examine two versions of a classic Dalek tale.
First, it’s the recently released animated version of the classic Second Doctor story, The Power of the Daleks featuring Patrick Troughton’s first appearance as the Doctor. He joins companions, Ben and Polly on this adventure.
Then, we look at the fan mounted The Power of the Daleks – Reimagined, which is a modernized take on the classic tale, presented to fans as part of a fundraising effort for charities back in 2013.
In this week’s episode we look at two pieces from our friends over at Candy Jar Books. First, it’s the final novel in the third phase of the Lethbridge-Stewart series, Mind of Stone by Iain McLaughlan. This will be a spoiler filled review of that book.
Then, we look at The Xmas Files featuring three short stories including The Feast of Evans by Simon A Forward, The Fright Before Christmas by Tom Dexter, and Home for Christmas by a collection of the authors who have worked on the LS series.
Plus, we have some convention announcements, and a look at some of the news that came out this week.
With the Beeb’s recent announcement of Season 10 premiering on Easter Saturday, we feel confident in releasing the rest of the schedule up to that point for those of you who like to follow along…
