Big Finish Folly, Part 115 – The Fourth Wall, by John Dorney

The Fourth WallDisturbances between dimensions bring the Tardis to Transmission, the private domain of media mogul Augustus Scullop. Mr Scullop’s empire however, is on the brink of collapse.

But wait… strange alien tech, industrial espionage, over-sensitive actors, and Porcians hell-bent on death, destruction and domination even though they’re too inept to get one out of three?

My God, You Should Have Seen Us!

Big Finish Folly, Part 112 – Voyage To Venus, by Jonathan Morris

And now they find themselves whisked off to the planet Venus in the distant future, at a time when warrior women rule from a floating city in the clouds. There’s a mystery here, one that the Grand Empress Vulpina intends to keep secret. Even if it means destroying these visitors from the long-dead planet Earth… (more…)
