…who will be the star of the Doctor Who / Forever Knight crossover at Rich’s Comic Blog.
If you aren’t reading it and the very funny House of Paulus strip you are missing something.
To my knowledge this is the first time a bond girl is involved in a doctor who adventure in video or audio.
This one is really good, heads up on a minor spoiler: Continue reading “Dr. Who Frozen Time; Amazon Review”
This is an independent spin off of the Doctor Who series featuring Leela, Romana and K9 all companions of the 4th doctor. It focus on events on Gallifrey all of which take place prior to the last great time war.
…if you were looking for vampires when Doctor Who met Dracula in Big Finish #99 Son of he Dragon and was disappointed in finding the historical Dracula instead fear not.
I don’t expect you’ll see any bowships but this has some real possibilities.
Oh and in between episodes you can enjoy his Ancient Roman Comic House of Paulus, a comedy that takes place in a firearms bearing Rome.
Either way Rich’s comic blog is the place to be.
For some reason I kept managing to lose this episode on eBay till I finally broke down and bought a new copy mail order from Mike Comics out of Worcester (they managed next day delivery without my asking, definitely worth your time). After listening to the story it’s a real shame I waited so long.
In my opinion it is one of the most important adventures of the run. First of all it was the first Big Finish to introduce an original companion to the series. It established an independence to the series that was necessary, after all we all know the fates of the doctor and each of the companions of the series (except for Ace) very limiting. She proved so popular that Baker didn’t have a different companion for over 18 months.
The second was what it did for Colin Baker. He was not a popular Doctor and his departure from the series was not a happy one. His initial story was of a poor quality. A second bad story would have really damaged the whole series. Remember at this point 8th doctor adventures were not part of the series. If he had been given another clunker that’s every third episode that doesn’t sell.
Update: Forgot to put in the cover.
Update 2: Colin Brockhurst has done some first rate alternate covers for Big finish products, with his permission I’m including his alternative cover on this post, and will include them in future reviews. As you can see they are pretty good.
Rich’s comic Strip the 10 doctors put up its 247th and final page today.
This is an incredible work that any Doctor who fan should enjoy. He has offered several different downloads of the story including notes etc.
If that isn’t worth a hit of his tip Jar I’d like to know what is.
You might notice that as of this writing Amazon has the wrong image for the product, so if you choose to order from the 3rd party people there I’d make sure that the product they are offering matches the image, or you can get it direct from Big Finish Here or Mikes comics in the US here.
Considering the quality of this particular episode, I’d consider ebay.
There aren’t a lot of 8th doctor adventures from Big finish that can be safely missed from the series, but this one is. The sad thing is that the story had an awful lot of potential. What could have been makes it a bigger disappointment that it actually is.
