Silver Nemesis [Classic Doctor Who]

Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but in recent years rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between.  But recently I decided to spend some of my 50th birthday spending money on some of these adventures, and enjoy them with one or two of my nerdier daughters.

Doctor Who, etc: Early Adventures, Dan Dare, Jago & Litefoot, Companion adventures–a Big Finish sampler

In the wake of the whole COVID-19 pandemic, Big Finish–most famous for their original licensed Doctor Who audios–began to release a variety of projects for free on a weekly basis.  Some of these are “proper” Doctor Who adventures, some are licensed from other sources, and others are completely original.  I have been taking advantage of these, as I’ve written about here and here and here. This time around we’re looking at a bit of a miscellaneous list of projects that got missed on my previous write-ups.

Doctor Who: Short Trips – Volume IV [Big Finish]

Thanks to the wild world of inexpensive deals on a website called Humble Bundle, I’ve added all sorts of odd offerings from Big Finish Productions to my collection. These guys have been making original Doctor Who audio material since 1999. Most notably that’s been full-cast audio dramas featuring actors and characters from the TV series, but it has also expanded into all sorts of ancillary material.

One of these lines is Short Trips, which is a collection of short stories set in the Doctor Who universe. One of my purchases included four of these collections.

Doctor Who: Rapture [Big Finish]

During the 90’s, while Doctor Who was completely out of production, the BBC authorized a series of “New Adventure” novels featuring the ongoing adventures of the show’s final cast, the 7th Doctor and his companion AceThe books took on a darker tone than the series had, with more vicious and crude content.

The Rapture Continue reading Doctor Who: Rapture [Big Finish]

Doctor Who: Colditz [Big Finish]

So, Colditz is apparently a board game.  Or rather, it’s called Escape from Colditz, and was based on the actual prison camp at Colditz Castle.  The name is mentioned in this, the last of my Big Finish Doctor Who audios from my discounted subscription, with the assumption that the audience will have heard of it.  Unfortunately, just like the R-101 or Pieter Stubbe, the historical reference was lost on me.Doctor Who Colditz - Big Finish Continue reading Doctor Who: Colditz [Big Finish]
