Kieran Brennan reviews the next Eighth Doctor and Lucie adventure: Brave New Town! Landing in the mid noughties, the Doctor and Lucie are quite surprised that everyone around them is insistent on the fact that no, despite what the TARDIS may say, this is not the mid noughties, it's the early 90s. Well, I suppose … Continue reading THE EIGHTH DOCTOR REVISITED | Brave New Town

REVIEW | Torchwood: War Chest

George Hewitt reviews May's Torchwood release: War Chest! War Chest is the debut Torchwood story for writer Rossa McPhillips, and also for director Samuel Clemens. It's also the first Tosh story in over a year, and is a very different sort of Torchwood story than listeners may be used to. The plot centres around the Antebellum, Torchwood's storage of alien … Continue reading REVIEW | Torchwood: War Chest

REVIEW | The War Doctor Begins: Battlegrounds

The War Doctor returns! Jonathon Carley is back for another three audio adventures, as the Doctor's most secret incarnation becomes further embroiled in the Time War.

REVIEW | Torchwood One: Nightmares

Yvonne, Ianto and the Torchwood One team return in Torchwood One: Nightmares, reviewed by George Hewitt Torchwood One is back! After 2019's Latter Days seemed like the last release in the series (it brought the series up to the Doctor Who TV story Army of Ghosts/Doomsday in which Torchwood One originally fell), Nightmares takes us back to 2005, the early days of Torchwood London, … Continue reading REVIEW | Torchwood One: Nightmares

REVIEW | Torchwood: Infidel Places

George Hewitt reviews the latest Torchwood story: Infidel Places! Una McCormack's first contribution to Big Finish's Torchwood range is an excellent story about sexism and misogyny, told through Queen Victoria's visit to Cambridge University, which allows for the welcome return of Rowena Cooper to the role. It's clear from very early on in this story what the … Continue reading REVIEW | Torchwood: Infidel Places
