The Flash 1×18 – All-Star Team Up

fla118a-0135b-129544Over in Arrow, Ray Palmer recently went up against the Arrow only to find his technological superiority wasn’t sufficient against Oliver’s skills and experience. A life-threatening injury brought home to him the need to work to improve the suit, and he heads to Star Labs in Central City with Felicity in order to meet the best person to help him – Cisco. Apparently this episode was supposed to air before his injury in Arrow, but the hiatus messed things up a bit). The premise is a bit wobbly, but any excuse to get Ray and Felicity over to Central works for me. (more…)

Big Finish: New novel adaptations released a month early

Big Finish are releasing two of their novel adaptations – Gareth Roberts The Well Mannered War and Russell T (whatever happened to him?) Davies’s Damaged Goods – a full month prior to the planned May 2015 release.

Incorporating new packaging that allows for more pages of extras, and with a download-exclusive two hour edit of the fifth disc (which includes an interview with Mr Cucumber himself) this looks to be rather fun, if I may be allowed a bit of an understatement. Full details can be found on the Big Finish website.

The Flash 1×17 – Tricksters

The-Flash-970x545Given just how prevalent the super hero genre is at the moment, it’s worth remembering that this wasn’t always the case, and that outside of cartoons, Smallville largely held up the torch alone for a decade; during which time it was mining the comics for characters, and the Superman film and tv past for actors to play them.

The Flash 1×16 – Rogue Time

Rogue TimeLast week, Cisco finally learnt Harrison Wells’ secret; Barry revealed his identity to Iris; Joe put himself in non-essential danger (again); and Flash discovered if he ran fast enough, he could travel through time.

At the end of last week’s episode, Flash found himself a week in the past, raising the question of how his trip back in time would effect the timeline. (more…)

Strangeness in Space Kickstarter – Starring Sophie Aldred, Trev & Simon and produced by Clare Eden

Starting today is a kickstarter for the new series of Strangeness in Space: a comedy sci-fi audio adventure from Trev & Simon, Sophie Aldred & Clare Eden. It will be free to download and is suitable for kids aged 8 to 80, and beyond….

Strangeness in Space

What would happen if Sophie, the manager of a NASA Space Centre gift shop, and Trev and Simon, two idiots claiming to be a 1980s styled synth pop duo called Pink Custard, were thrown together with a stressy computer robot called LEMON on board a damaged space craft, lost in a distant universe, orbiting Planet Mirth?

 Strangeness would happen, that’s what! (more…)

Big Finish Eighth Doctor adventures: Dark Eyes 4 box set

So the Dark Eyes 4 box set is with us – and as such the franchise is finally closed, with the four-story narrative neatly (and sometimes not so neatly) wrapping up this, and other, Big Finish story arcs.

Dark Eyes 4

The writing credits are jointly shared by BF alumni Matt Fitton and John Dorney, with Fitton also showrunning and defining the arc.

The series opens with Dorney’s A Life in the Day: Liv and the Doctor are in London, being chased by alien assassins for unknown reasons, and tying up with the Donaldson siblings, who may be hiding more than they admit. For me this is possibly the best of the bunch. Without giving too much away, ALitD provides a new angle on an old SF trope, and its an extremely interesting one. It asks questions of the genre that have generally been left unasked before, namely, what does it feel like to be the one the, um, don’t want to spoil, the one the thing isn’t happening to in the relationship, and for this reason alone it makes the boxset worth the asking price. Of course, there are many other reasons too… (more…)

The Flash 1×15 – Out of Time

flash1x15After a month-long break, Flash returns with a packed episode. Given that the show has already been part of a crossover with Arrow, had a strong mid-season finale, and given a two-part introduction to another superhero, it’s perhaps surprising that there’s so much in this episode. Of course, in line with the lead character’s ‘thing’, the show has not been slow to bring in new elements, and this episode hits us with several big deals, culminating in a blast of awesome. And we’re still quite some weeks away from the finale. (more…)
