Review: Doctor Who Lost Stories – Nightmare Country / The Ultimate Evil

Review by Jacob Licklider


The Lost Stories range from Big Finish Productions had a four series run from 2009-2013, making a range of stories entirely out of television stories which for one reason or another never made it to the series. The range ended due to the amount of viable scripts drying up; with remaining stories being from creators who would not allow Big Finish to adapt them for one reason or another or stories which weren’t far enough along in development to facilitate a full adaptation. This year Big Finish have given the range a brief revival with two stories from the 1980s not produced during the original run for the former reason, featuring two distinct Doctors and two distinct feels to their stories.

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.
