Bond vs. Bond: The many faces of 007

Bond vs Bond, by Paul Simpson, compares and contrasts all of the different interpretations of Ian Fleming’s icon James Bond. It’s a comprehensive guide, looking at the books and the movies and covering all the guns and gadgets.  All the different Bonds are here and showcased with side by side comparisons of their weapons and kit, their companions and vehicles.  It’s a book bursting with info about the worlds most famous spy!

Bond vs Bond

Spanning from Fleming’s 1953 book Casino Royale to Sam Mendes’ 2012 film Skyfall this is definitely a book that no Bond fan should be without!

Big Finish Eighth Doctor: Doom Coalition vol 1

Big Finish’s fourth Dark Eyes season finished that series of box sets with aplomb, and it was hard in many ways to see how the next Eight Doctor series could better it.

Well, I can tell you that the audio drama company has worked out the answer. It’s an answer of many parts, but an answer it is, because the recently released Doom Coalition volume 1 is absolutely awesome.

doomcoalitionhighres_image_large

This first of many Doom Coalition box sets stars Paul McGann as the Doctor, with Nicola Walker as companion and mopey erstwhile botwrangler (I’m going to use that phrase till someone acknowledges it’s great) Liv Chenka. Also introduced is Hattie Morahan as new companion Helen Sinclair, and the excellent Mark Bonnar (late of The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People off of the telly) as The Eleven. (more…)

Big Finish – Torchwood 1.1: The Conspiracy

BF TW 101 The Conspiracy

Oh yes, Jack is back! I’m a bit late catching the recently released first episode of Big Finish’s new Torchwood series, and there’s a tinge of nervousness approaching it given the high standard of other ranges – can it stand by itself with a similar level of quality?

It doesn’t take long to get an answer (if the tagline next to the BF logo wasn’t telling in itself), with a cracking evolution of the Torchwood theme by Blair Mowat that feels the same kind of natural progression as a new series – which this is of course! (more…)

Big Finish – Wildthyme Reloaded

How have I managed to not hook up for an Iris Wildthyme, starring Doctor Who Legend Katy Manning, before!?! Sadly aurally only but she’s still larger than life in audio!  I’ve never avoided this series but I’ve never quite had the time or been in line to review them.  I’m quickly rectifying that situation after listening to her latest adventures in her time traveling double decker. Wildthyme Reloaded

You get a lot of bang for your buck with this set as there are eight really strong stories – the first one seeing the return of one of the most inventive, irrepressible and downright fun Doctor Who villains ever to be created by Big Finish, the Scorchies!  As well as being the musically endowed comedy romp you’d expect it also brings up some unexpected past history for Iris.
