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.
It’s just a little change really, nothing spectacular or anything, but a tidy up of sorts. I’ll probably be doing more to it over the coming days / weeks. Thought I’d let you know.
I’ve been a fan for a long time now, and I saw them at WOMAD a few years ago, which was a real joy. Now they’ve released Burials in Several Earths on 10″ vinyl and it is a thing of beauty. Not only to listen to but simply as an object in itself. I’m glad to own it.
Which is kind of a big deal really. 11 years is a long time to have been running a site, any site in fact.
It’s not the big milestone that 10 was, but I think it’s still important.
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.
Which is positive as there’s no real future for Pebble watches with Pebble or FitBit, Rebble could be a possibility. It seems that they’re making progress albeit slow progress. The latest update is the 23rd of April. I’m hopeful that this will bring the Pebble back to life, but it is early days.
The littleBits bitLab that is. I’d always wondered how sustainable it would be, but apparently there’s already an answer to that question. So it’s a shame. I think that there were some very nice projects in there but obviously not enough money to make it work.
It’s a shame. It was a great idea.
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.
