Big Finish: Doctor Who Novel Adaptations 9 – Nightshade

For years, I’ve been hoping for Nightshade to be adapted into a two-parter to bring what was probably my favourite of the New Adventures novels to a new audience. It may not have come to TV, but BF have brought Mark Gatiss’ first novel into a range of adaptations that has been fantastic so far – can they continue the pattern and do it justice?
BF Nightshade

Nightshade takes us to the little village of Crook Marsham in 1968, where undercurrents of lost dreams and past glories are joined by a sullen Seventh Doctor lost in thoughts of hanging up his umbrella. But the undercurrents don’t stop with the people – something is shifting out of sight, and is retired actor Edmund Trevithick really imagining those monsters from his old show?

Big Finish:The 4th Doctor Adventures – Wave of Destruction

Spies, DJs, modulated frequency wave cancellation signals: these are amongst the odder things awaiting the Doctor and Romana in 1960’s London. But perhaps the oddest is the cancellation signal’s inventor lying unconscious next to it…  so what links the Professor, a catchy radio jingle and the British Secret service?  Whatever it is, it’s connected to a risk far greater than they might have imagined, and a clandestine alien invasion. Can the Doctor defeat the Aliens? Can Romana survive a shopping trip? Can K-9 cope with his new job?

Big Finish: Doctor Who Main Range – The Waters of Amsterdam

A trip to Amsterdam’s famous Rijkmuseum to see a new exhibition of Rembrandt van Rijn’s masterpieces surprises both the Doctor and Tegan with unexpected drawings of ‘Vessels of the Stars’ and old flames respectively.  Will the events of Tegan’s life during her year away from the Doctor prevent them from dealing with the strange creatures in the canals and the mysterious Countess?  Or Tegan’s life catching up with her  no mere coincidence?  Someone is playing a very long game and the world may never be the same again.

FIND OUT HOW RIVER SONG MEETS THE EIGHTH DOCTOR – IN THE NEW ISSUE OF DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE!
 Doctor Who Magazine #495

Doctor Who Magazine finds out what happens when River Song runs into the Eighth Doctor in the new audio series The Diary of River Song – and interviews both Paul McGann and Alex Kingston!

“River has to interact with the Eighth Doctor to save him, to help him,” explains Alex. “When she’s figured out how she can do that without having to be physically present in front of him, alongside helping him, she can then tease and flirt a little bit, because she knows she’s safe, and she knows she hasn’t overstepped a boundary, or changed his or her future in any way by that actual physical interaction. So she can then have fun! She’s in control.”

And what does the Eighth Doctor make of River?

Lego Dimensions – Doctor Who Level Pack Review

Lego Dimensions

It was exciting news when Doctor Who Lego was announced a while back, and even more exciting when it was confirmed the Doctor would be in the new Lego Dimensions game.  And it’s not just a token nod: what we have here is a full level pack with a lot of content, all very faithful to the show and imbued with its charm and wit. From the Legofied title sequence you can tell this game is going to be fun. The titles are a nicely translated version of the 12th Doctor’s, but are jam packed with Dr Who themed lego hi-jinx in the background.lego-dimensions-will-feature-peter-capaldi-as-doctor-who-daleks-and-cybermen-included-486455-2

 Essential Doctor Who 6 - Davros

“The last issue dealt with monsters,” says editor Marcus Hearn, “so this time we’re turning our attention to the Doctor’s humanoid adversaries. Davros made a huge impact in the recent story The Magician’s Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar, so he leads the charge!” (more…)

WHAT IS TO BECOME OF CLARA OSWALD? DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE PREVIEWS THE AMAZING FINAL EPISODES – IN ISSUE 493!

DWM493_COVER

Doctor Who Magazine looks ahead to the dramatic final episodes of the latest series – Sleep No More, Face the Raven, Heaven Sent and Hell Bent, and talks to to the writers of the episodes: Mark Gatiss,  Sarah Dollard and showrunner Steven Moffat. We also catch up with the director of the series finale, Rachel Talalay and the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi…

“The whole episode’s quite big,” Peter tells DWM of the 12th and final episode of the series, Hell Bent.  “It’s huge, actually – but also there’s a sadness, a romance, and a tragedy to Episode 12,” he says. “It’s just so romantic. It’s very effective. And I loved all the stuff on one particular set. I was very excited. It looks so modern – a Kubrick-y kind of vibe. It was very nice. We’re in a very interesting place, because we’re competing with bigger shows, frankly. Most American shows have four times the budget per episode that we have, but that’s what we’re up against. We’re competing withGame of Thrones… This is traditional for Doctor Who, but it goes to show what this amazing production team can achieve.” (more…)
