Review: Doctor Who – Time Apart

Review by Michael Goleniewski


The Fifth Doctor is on his own. After the events of “Conversion” and seeing yet another friend fall victim to one of his greatest foes, the Doctor has left his companions behind on an alien world and is traveling alone to give himself some time to think and recuperate. “Time Apart” as a release picks up more or less right where that story left off and is an anthology of adventures for the Doctor in Earth’s history set in the vein of releases such as “Breaking Bubbles” or “Circular Time”.

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 – Interstitial/Feast of Fear

Review by Jacob Licklider


There is something incredibly important to be said about these double releases for the main range.  They have their pros and cons: they allow double the story, but only half the time which can create issues in depth of characterisation; but what they may do best is allow two new writers to introduce listeners to their style and their shot to write for Big Finish Productions.

Review: Doctor Who – Tartarus

Review by Michael Goleniewski


Tartarus is an unusual Main Range release in that it mixes two different casts together i.e a Doctor Who TARDIS team and the cast of one of Big Finish’s original releases, Cicero. Taking place in ancient Rome, Cicero centers around the tales of the real-life orator, lawyer, statesman, and philosopher who was a prominent player in the latter days of the Roman republic and the early days of the Roman empire. It’s a set that this reviewer has yet to hear at the time of writing but have heard fantastic things about and hope to tackle in the very near future. Thus, bringing these two casts and settings together seems like a novel idea for a great Who story a la ‘Fires of Pompeii’ (or ‘Fires of Vulcan’ from Big Finish’s main line) as well as a nice introduction in getting listeners excited to check out the other set.
