In episode 33, we begin briefly with the Steven Moffat Doctor Who News, with the news of Matthew Waterhouse reprising his role in the Doctor Who Short Trips later in 2016 and 2017. 

Then the podcast begins with your discussion of the Doctor Who releases, starting with Main Range release #208 Waters of Amsterdam by Jonathan Morris. In this release, we discuss the time period where this episode fits, regarding the Classic Doctor Who universe with the Big Finish audios.  Then discuss how Tegan's character is drawn out more than most of the previous audios.  Next, we look at the Fourth Doctor Adventures #5.01 Waves of Destruction by Justin Richards.  In this adventure, Big Finish reunites Tom Baker and Lalla Ward in the TARDIS, something we have only had in three of Big Finishes Novel Adaptations.  Then we look at the Early Adventures, #2.04 The Isos Network by Nicholas Briggs, a great episode that slips perfectly between Invasion and The Krotons.

We then review the non-Doctor Who releases.  First the ITV audio adaptations of The Prisoner written and directed by Nicholas Briggs,  featuring Mark Elstob as Number Six.  Nicholas Briggs wrote three adaptions of the classic series, with one amazing original story, Your Beautiful Village.  Finally, we finish the podcast with a review of The Avengers - Lost Episodes Volume 5,  featuring Anthony Howell (Dr Keel), Julian Wadham (John Steed).

Because of storage space, part 2 of the 2015 Review podcast will not be released until February, as well as our Audio Only podcasts, where we review Spearhead From Space and The Web Planet, so please stay tuned for those.  Not to mention our February 2016 Big Finish podcast review.

In episode 32, we begin with Doctor Who News, discussing the news that was revealed at Big Finish Day 8 with more Blake's 7, War Doctor Box set 4 with Leela.

Starting with the month of January, we have some clips from Main Range 195 Mistfall, by Andrew Smith (writer of the classic story Full Circle). We gave some thoughts about the 4th Doctor getting an new companion that was not on the classic series (like the 6th Doctor).  We speculate on the Big Finish Novel Adaptation #11 being Lungbarrow as we review The Romance of Crime and The English Way of Death. I talk about my love of Film Noir detective radio shows, and why I appreciate The Avengers.  Liam explains to me the how Dark Shadows: Bloodlust works and thoughts on that range. Liam also continues to work on me to give Rise of the Runelords a listen, explaining and educating me on legends and D&D mythology. We continue on with the year's review looking at Main Range 196 release, Equilibrium, by Matt Litton.

Liam gets after me (rightly so too), because I have not watched/listened to Blake's 7, Pathfinders, and then Gallifrey series, because my jumping on point was Gallifrey 7: Intervention Earth, due to reviews that I read told me it's a good jumping on point. We then look at the final episode of the 5th Doctor E-Space Trilogy, The Entropy Plague, by Jonathan Morris.  I go on about how great Requiem for the Rocket Men, by John Dorney, and the greatness of the Rocket Men trilogy using clips to try to prove my point.  Discuss Dark Eyes series 4 and the downfalls of this range compared to the greatness of Doom Coalition range. 

I share a few clips and share my love for the Novel Adaptation The Well-Mannered War by Gareth Roberts. We also discuss the possibilities of if the unresolved ending to the Well-Mannered War will get resolved in Series 5 of The 4th Doctor Adventures.

Episode 32 includes all the Big Finish titles either Brett or Liam has listened to and reviewed from January 2015 through April 2015.  Please stay tuned for Episode 33, which will include Big Finish reviews of titles from May 2015 through December 2015.

 

Please look out for and listen to the next Podcast release will be Spearhead From Space audio review, which will come out in December 2016.

Our next Audio Edition Review will be The Web Planet.  Please listen to the story, and send us a tweet or an email about your audio only experience.

Black Dog

Episode 31 of the Doctor Who: Alhambra Audio Podcast!

In this podcast we review the Big Finish Short Trip release 5.12 Black Dog, by Dale Smith.  The synopsis goes as follows: 

To dream of the Black Dog is to die in terror within the week. The Doctor thinks it nothing but mindless superstition... but then Leela dreams the dream.

Myself and Liam discuss some parallels this story shares with world history.  However, we both have different views on the baddie.  It's a great listen at 34 minutes long, and at the great price of £2.99.  Check out the Big Finish website for this release and other great products!
