Review: Huckleberry (2018)

Huckleberry; from writer/director Roger Hill follows our titular transgender character (Daniel Fisher-Golden); who is navigating high-school life in a small rural town. He experiences discrimination and ‘Dead-naming’ from various authority figures in the community; which is a very timely issue to show on screen (and is currently often discussed in the media). This, however is not the film’s main thrust but more serves as a cultural backdrop to a ‘Romeo & Juliet’ style love story; as Huckleberry vies for the affections of Jolene (Sarah Ulstrop). She, in turn is trying to walk away from an abusive relationship with ‘Jock’ boyfriend Clint (Justin Rose). This is an interesting reversal of stereotypes and also a classic tale of teenage angst and the struggles of young people in small rural communities.

Review: The Further Adventures of Lucie Miller (Volume 1)

Review by Michael Goleniewski


The Eighth Doctor / Lucie Miller era is a fan favourite for Whovians; especially among regular Big Finish audio listeners. Sheridan Smith’s Lucie Miller is often regarded and talked about in the same breath as Rose Tyler or Donna Noble and it’s obvious that she left a major impact on the canon. So it’s really not much of a surprise that after her widely successful initial run that lasted for 4 seasons and 28 stories, she would be invited to come back for another go on the site.
