Legend of the Cybermen Review

Ok this release has been out a while, but I had a lot of work in the way, so hear goes (a bad audio joke, Big Finish audio ahem Yes cough well).

I will start by saying this review (of Legend of the Cybermen) will have spoilers in it, but hopefully enough that you'll go out and buy it. The first thing is the story continues on from The Wreck of the Titan, and by that really had a lot to live up to, because Wreck was written so well by, and directed by Barnaby Edwards of Dalek fame and not of DWNY fame. In comparison Legend is written by Mike Maddox and Directed by Nick Briggs.

Doctor Who, Series Split.

Steven Moffat

Steven Moffat announced at the Edinburgh International Television Festival that the next season of Doctor Who will be split. But not like we think of spilt, according to Steven, "The wrong expression would be to say we are splitting it in two. We are making it two separate series." Seven episodes are to be shown up to Easter and the remaining six episodes are to be shown in the autumn.

The FOUR Doctors at last!

Ok, OK! so it's not a TV episode, but it's something I've been wanting after realising we've had every other combination of numbers of Doctors up to five, but not four.  I would have written earlier about this but there was one FACT that was unclear.  Yes it's free to subscribers but! which Doctor Who ranges would be included?  and as far as I can make out it's the Monthly Doctor Who Range subscribers who get this little gem in their fists.

Big Finish has done this on a regular basis last year saw the release "An Earthly Child" a 8th Doctor and Susan tale, but unlike that release, Big Finish has said as of going to press that this adventure would never be released other than to Subscribers.  Now I see three points here 1.) Big Finish would make an absolute wad of cash if they eventually released this for general sale.  2.) That they must make enough that they can "AFFORD" to do this, but in fact this is very nice present to their subscribers if it remains so.  3.) Internet piracy, maybe at some point this is going to end up on a torrent site.  Great for those who don't want to subscribe but bad for Big Finish, as they may have lawyers but I doubt they have the clout of the BIG Music labels, and I personally would rather see the money going into Big Finish's pockets because this is quite literately how future productions are funded.

The Dominators DVD Review

So after watching this DVD a couple of times a quick review.  Of course I should be the one to tell you about this release, Patrick Troughton's 2nd Doctor being my favourite Doctor despite being born in the Time of Pertwee.  This Story see's the Doctor land the Tardis on the Planet of Dulkis for a Vacation, on an Island that the Doctor has forgotten to check for Radiation.  Meanwhile the Dominators have landed on the Island and are preparing a site for drilling supported by the Robotic Quarks.
