There’s a new face in town, upsetting all the kneecappers. The Doctor – gunrunner extraordinaire. Modern crime, Edwardian style. And when the real Doctor and Evelyn are nabbed by DI Menzies for crimes they have not committed, they quickly realise that fings are not wot they seem (although that might also have something to do with the giant robotic insects chasing them across the city).

The Doctor doesn’t have long to rescue humanity from the Nowhere Place… (more…)

Hold Your Hudd Up

Big Finish Folly, Part 92 – Pier Pressure, by Robert Ross

Everybody needs a holiday. The Doctor needs one more than most. So where better to dip one’s toes into the deep twinkling blue than Brighton Beach? There’s always fun to be had at the end of the pier… unless the resident stage magician has been taken over by foul, evil forces, that is.

Feeling a Right Burke

Big Finish Folly, Part 91 – Medicinal Purposes, by Robert Ross

Welcome to Edinburgh. Note, if you will, the blood-soaked cobbles near the cattle market; the noose and gibbet outside The Last Drop; the body slumped in the alley just over there; and, of course, the wonderful graveyard, replete with disinterred coffins.
