Legend of the Cybermen Review

Ok this release has been out a while, but I had a lot of work in the way, so hear goes (a bad audio joke, Big Finish audio ahem Yes cough well).

I will start by saying this review (of Legend of the Cybermen) will have spoilers in it, but hopefully enough that you'll go out and buy it. The first thing is the story continues on from The Wreck of the Titan, and by that really had a lot to live up to, because Wreck was written so well by, and directed by Barnaby Edwards of Dalek fame and not of DWNY fame. In comparison Legend is written by Mike Maddox and Directed by Nick Briggs.

The FOUR Doctors at last!

Ok, OK! so it's not a TV episode, but it's something I've been wanting after realising we've had every other combination of numbers of Doctors up to five, but not four.  I would have written earlier about this but there was one FACT that was unclear.  Yes it's free to subscribers but! which Doctor Who ranges would be included?  and as far as I can make out it's the Monthly Doctor Who Range subscribers who get this little gem in their fists.

Big Finish has done this on a regular basis last year saw the release "An Earthly Child" a 8th Doctor and Susan tale, but unlike that release, Big Finish has said as of going to press that this adventure would never be released other than to Subscribers.  Now I see three points here 1.) Big Finish would make an absolute wad of cash if they eventually released this for general sale.  2.) That they must make enough that they can "AFFORD" to do this, but in fact this is very nice present to their subscribers if it remains so.  3.) Internet piracy, maybe at some point this is going to end up on a torrent site.  Great for those who don't want to subscribe but bad for Big Finish, as they may have lawyers but I doubt they have the clout of the BIG Music labels, and I personally would rather see the money going into Big Finish's pockets because this is quite literately how future productions are funded.

It Was 25 Years Ago Today, The Gallifreyan Embassy Began…

It was a quarter of century ago today, as hard as it is for me believe, is when the Gallifreyan Embassy began. Unbeknownst at the time, it was the day after the Discovery Channel was launched. It was also the day after the launch of the space shuttle Discovery (STS-51-G) which marked the first Arab and Muslim in space (payload specialist Sultan bin Salman bin Adulaziz Al Saud). Yes, it was 1985. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer while NeXT is founded by Steve Jobs after leaving Apple Computer.

Just two weeks before we went Back to the Future in the theaters, the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island officially began.
