One day I’ll do something musical with a ZX Spectrum

Currently I don’t even have a ZX Spectrum, but I did, a long while ago, and one day I’ll have one again. When I do I’ll be running this among a number of music programs that I used to use a long time ago. That’ll be fun.

This was a recommendation from the Big Finish site and I thought I’d really l really wanted to hear it because it was read by Caroline Johns herself and I thought her Liz Shaw was a great companion.

This story was excellent. A bit more cerebral a story and I was glad for it. I have to say that I really enjoyed it and so much so that I think I’ll probably try a few more Liz Shaw stories.

I’m not sure I can believe that Spectrum Next is a thing

It’ll be interesting to see what sort of pricing comes up for Spectrum Next when it arrives on whatever crowdfunding site they choose. I like the look of it, but what I’d really like is the same thing for a ZX81. I doubt very much that anyone is going to do that though.

Anyway, it’ll be interesting to see how this develops.

This is what used to happen when you found a computer anywhere. Of course sometimes the actual words were less appropriate, if you know what you mean.

A nice collection. I wouldn’t mind that lot myself!

In my ongoing plan to slowly acquire all of the 3rd Doctor DVDs, these are the two I bought next. Anyone who knows the third doctor will realise that I’m not doing this in any kind of order at all. At least, not so far. It has been a bit random, but I’ll probably start collecting in order quite soon.

However, these two stories came as a boxed set, so there was little choice in that.

The Curse of Peladon is the earlier story, and the first time that the 3rd Doctor visits Peladon. It’s a good story by any standards. Of course the production values are early 70s TV and that probably doesn’t stand the test of time. However, I really enjoyed it, especially because one of the main characters is played by the son of the second Doctor.

The second story was right at the end of Mr Pertwee’s time as the Doctor. It is another good one, in my view, and again, I enjoyed it a lot.

At some point I’m going to go through all of the 3rd Doctor stories in order, when I’ve got them of course, and that will be truly epic.
