Review: The War Master – Anti-Genesis

Review by Jacob Licklider


The War Master: Anti-Genesis is the fourth, and potentially final, installment in Big Finish’s War Master range starring Derek Jacobi. Unlike the other Big Finish ranges dealing with the Time War, the War Master does not have an overarching plot through each of the four box sets as they are placed around this Master’s personal timeline. Anti-Genesis sets itself apart from the other three box sets, as unlike the previous sets, it is less a standalone War Master release, but a crossover with the Gallifrey range, featuring Sean Carlsen and Pippa Bennett-Warner as Narvin and President Livia, respectively. It is also a plot which reflects on Genesis of the Daleks and that stories implications for the Daleks and Time Lords, while placing the War Master directly in the action. For this review there will be spoilers for each of the stories in the set. As the set was only recently released, a non-spoiler review for those who have not heard it or are wary about spoilers: it is an excellent set. Derek Jacobi as always gives an excellent portrayal of the Master and giving him one scheme throughout instead of other sets giving him a scheme a story helps bring the set into a focus. The overarching plot is engaging and truly feels like a story involving a time war, instead of simply relying on Daleks and Time Lords engaging in traditional warfare. It’s a set that’s worth your time and should be picked up as soon as you can.

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 by Michael Goleniewski


“Emissary of the Daleks” continues the latest Sixth Doctor / Peri trilogy of stories begun with the intrinsically memorable “Memories of a Tyrant” last month. On a remote planet orbiting a solitary star, the Doctor and Peri have landed in order to discover how life has developed on a world with little to no external influences. They soon discover a devastated landscape full of gravestones of the dead and a nearby city on stilts under the control of the new masters of the planet.

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.

Audio Review: Survivors (Series 9)

Review by Ian McArdell


In the five years since its audio resurrection, Survivors, based on Terry Nation’s 1970s BBC television show, has provided some of the most shocking and traumatic hours of audio drama I have ever heard. Set in the aftermath of a devastating contagion, the show follows those who survived in their attempts to forge a new life, to re-learn the basics and work together in order to stay alive.

Review: Doctor Who – The 10th Doctor Adventures (Vol 3)

Review by Jacob Licklider


Getting David Tennant to reprise his role as the Tenth Doctor is one of the biggest successes in Big Finish’s recent years and after two successful volumes of adventures, they are back with Volume 3. The main draw to this box set is the return of Bernard Cribbins as Wilfred Mott in the first release of the set and as always bringing Tennant and Catherine Tate together will get fans excited.
