My review of the Big Finish Companion Chronicles adventure # 5.3 Staring Alex Lowe as Huxley and Katy Manning as BOTH Jo Grant and Iris Wildthyme are available here at and Here at

I haven’t done a Doctor who review in a while so I’m glad to get back to it.

As always you can pick this up at Mike’s comics. You can also listen to a trailer the adventure here.

My review of the Big Finish companion Chronicles # 4.5 RingPullworld is available at here.

You will note that the image at Amazon doesn’t match the image here. That is because they put “placeholder” images before the actual covers are released and whoever is selling the copies on Amazon never updated the image to show the proper doctor or the proper cover. This is in fact a 5th doctor adventure featuring his companion Turlough.

My Review of the Big Finish adventure Blue Forgotten Planet # 126 featuring Colin Baker as the 6th doctor and India Fisher in her final adventure as Charley Pollard is available at here.

This marks the end of the Incredible 10 year continuous run of Charley Pollard as the companion of the doctor in new adventures. This is the longest run of any character or Actor in any of the various series. From Storm Warning

to The Girl who never was she was in every 8th doctor adventure. Once she was paired with Colin Baker in the Condemned, for two years with only a single exception (Assassin in the Twilight) she was the companion for every 6th doctor in the series until this one.

Ironically if you are a big finish regular you saw that Blue Forgotten Planet was actually scheduled for adventure # 114 or so. The title was up but no details were there. This was because Charley was meant to have 3 adventures with the 6th Doctor and that would be it, but the response was so great and popular that Blue Forgotten Planet disappeared from the schedule and Charley traveled on.

Charley is actually going to return in the first 8th doctor companion chronicles later this year Solitare so we haven’t seen the last of India or Charley, but it’s been a great run and some great fun.

My review of the penultimate Big Finish 6th Doctor Charley Pollard adventure Paper Cuts number #125 is available at here.

This also contains the next part of the Three Companions Story. This has really been interesting. I think the use of this kind of backfeature might be a great way to get people to actually buy these instead of pirating them.

I really don’t understand why Amazon US doesn’t carry those but that is what Mike’s comics is for.

Mike and Patty are sweethearts and you will not find a retailer more considerate than Mike’s. You will be happy to give them your business.

Update: I don’t know how I managed to forget the link but it’s there now.
