Big Finish: Survivors – Series 6

I’ve been waiting for this for some time now, and really looking forward to it. Today it is released, and I’ll almost certainly be buying it today.

In preparation for series 6 I decided to listen to all previous 5 series in order. That’s the Big Finish series of course, not the original television series or the remake. I thought it would be a good wait to get ready and have the timeline and stories straight for series 6. I’d forgotten just how good Big Finish have made survivors. They’ve done an amazing job on it. It’s totally consistent with the original and yet extends it seamlessly.

When I’ve absorbed series 6 I’ll let you know the verdict.

iCloud troubles

I love how Apple always tells you how much all their products and services make life easier. Well not always! Over the last couple of weeks I’ve had terrible trouble with iCloud. To the extent that it’s deleted all of my calendars, forced me to change passwords all over the place too.

Not much fun at all. Not in any way. Thanks so much Apple.

The fourth doctor to get a new companion!

I read that in the news on the big finish site a week or so ago and I’ve been pondering it ever since. When the fourth doctor came back in the form of excellent stories from big finish. Ever since the stories have been with original companions, the much missed Mary Tamm as Romana 1, Leela from the excellent Louise Jameson, and latterly Romana 2 with Lala Ward.

Now there’s to be a new, or rather a completely new companion. I still don’t know how I feel about that. I guess I’ll have to wait and see how it actually sounds in the end.
