Doctor Who: The Adventure Games Blood of the Cybermen Let’s Play (1/3)

The Doctor and Amy materialize in the Arctic – where members of a survey team are turning from flesh to metal and digging something sinister from under the ice that’s been waiting thousands of years – an army of Cybermen! This is your chance to be the Doctor. Following an SOS signal the Doctor and Amy must tackle some basic point and click puzzling in an ice cave, and some very bad “platforming” in this first part of the second […]

Doctor Who: The Adventure Games Let’s Play – City of the Daleks

If you live in the UK and watched Doctor Who around series 5 you might have heard of these games. You might have seen the brief advert at the end of some of the episodes and thought “huh that Doctor Who game looks kind of okay” and then completely forgot about it. They were available to download for free to UK residents, and available for purchase outside of the UK through the overly complex Direct2Drive if you didn’t know how […]

LIVE 34 Review – Big Finish Doctor Who Main Rage #74

LIVE 34 is the third Doctor Who Big Finish audio serial to star the TARDIS team made up of the Seventh Doctor, Ace, and Hex (and the 74th in Big Finish’s monthly range overall). Hex is a Big Finish original character, and as such this is only his third outing ever, after The Harvest (pretty great) and Dreamtime (not too good). Hex’s addition to the audios has been wonderfully refreshing so far, thanks in large part to great performances by […]

6 Ways Assassin’s Creed Unity Is Better than the Other Ones Even Though It’s Worse than the Other Ones

It’s that time of year again. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is coming out this week, and I didn’t even remember until yesterday. I work in the games industry, but mainly covering Japanese games, so that makes it okay, right? Right? Syndicate has had quite a bit of marketing, but as usual with Ubisoft a little bit too much. It kind of blends into a hum. Background noise. A lot of people are worried this one will be bad in the same ways […]

Doctor Who: Engines of War Review

Engines of War, written by George Mann, seems to follow the tradition of the other larger-size hardback Doctor Who releases by BBC Books The Wheel of Ice (by Stephen Baxter) and Harvest of Time (Alistair Reynolds). Both of those books featured the second and third Doctors respectively. I don’t think there’s been any confirmation of these books being “part of a series”, but they have had similar releases and all feature past Doctors.

Doctor Who and the Cave Monsters (2011 Reprint) Review

by Malcolm Hulke(brilliant) illustations by Chris AchilleosIt should perhaps be noted that the original 1974 print is titled Doctor Who and the Cave-Monsters. This difference is actually more relevant than the casual observer might think (though besides a few typos nothing in the text has been changed from the original print). As fans might know, the Silurians were Doctor Who monsters whose name was constantly in dispute. Barry Letts thought that technically they should be called the Eocenes. In this novelisation […]

The Clockwise Man Review (Doctor Who New Series Adventures 1)

Doctor Who and The Clockwise Manby Justin RichardsThis novel by Justin Richards marks the first entry in the BBC’s New Series Adventures range, designed to tie-in with the 2005 revival series. These novels were (and are) released in batches of three novels, usually with them being one set in the past, one in the future, and one in present day. I’m not sure if that’s entirely true, I haven’t checked, but it seems about right from where I’m standing. The first set […]
