Review: Doctor Who – Early Adventures (Series 6)

Review by Jacob Licklider


The Early Adventures range from Big Finish Productions is a chance to tell full cast stories with the characters from the 1960s eras from Doctor Who. The range has currently run five series alternating between the First and Second Doctors, and this month the sixth series was released, however, instead of the standard four release across the final four months of the year there were only two. While truncating this series to two means less content, the sixth series is a prime example of quality over quantity from a range that has already had some of the strongest stories featured. This series, while being firmly part of the Second Doctor’s era, is a celebration of the 1960s era of Doctor Who as a whole creating a “what if” idea of a Fifth Anniversary Celebration.

Review: Torchwood – Dead Man’s Switch

Review by Michael Goleniewski


Dead Man’s Switch represents this particular critic’s first foray into Torchwood audio dramas. While being somewhat familiar with the show and its characters and stories, they had never grabbed me as anything that was absolutely required listening especially with the last television season ‘Miracle Day’ leaving a particularly nasty taste in my mouth.

Review: Short Trips – Hall of the Ten Thousand

Review by Jacob Licklider


Big Finish’s Doctor Who: Short Trips range provides an excellent writing opportunity for new writers for the company to test their strength in a short story format. The 30-40 minute short story format with a single narrator almost forces writers to become creative with how they approach telling a story. November 2019’s release is one such story from a new writer, Jaine Fenn, who before working for Big Finish has written several science fiction novels. Hall of the Ten Thousand is her debut Short Trip, an Eighth Doctor story set early in his run narrated by India Fisher in character as Charley Pollard.
