I'm a simple woman. I saw Ace with swords on the cover and was instantly sold. Really, though, it wasn’t only the cover that swayed my decision to pick up this discounted boxset from Big Finish in November. I’m a sucker for Doctor Who pirate stories because there are, in my opinion, far too few … Continue reading Review: The Flying Dutchman / Displaced
Short Trips: Repercussions – A Masterclass on Flash Fiction Anthologies
I love flash fiction, for those of you who can't tell. Part of the reason is that I love writing in different genres and flash fiction allows me to do that effortlessly. Another reason is that I know that people live busy lives, and I love writing a story that anyone can read, no matter … Continue reading Short Trips: Repercussions – A Masterclass on Flash Fiction Anthologies
Unlimited Plum Pudding!!!
Have you ever wanted to see an unconventional Christmas story? One that's so distinctly Christmas, and yet different from most of the cheery, simple stories that come around every December? One of my favourite things to do as a writer is to deviate from the audience's expectations. I look at a trope or a genre … Continue reading Unlimited Plum Pudding!!!
Flux: The Good, the Bad, and the Ravagers
I sat with my husband on the couch, watching the Thirteenth Doctor regain her composure as she pressed a lever on the TARDIS console. As the familiar theme song started up with the credits, there was one word in my mind. Woah. It was the same reaction I'd had after every episode in the Flux … Continue reading Flux: The Good, the Bad, and the Ravagers
Same Software, Different Case
A comparison of "Father's Day" and "The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith" I am currently forcing my husband to watch The Sarah Jane Adventures--okay, I'm not forcing him, I promise he wanted to! The Sarah Jane Adventures, or SJA, is a spin-off series of Doctor Who that follows former companion Sarah Jane Smith who has … Continue reading Same Software, Different Case
Gallifrey: Time War 4 – The End of an Era
Today marks one week since the highly anticipated Gallifrey: Time War 4 boxset was released. How are your emotions? Mine still haven’t recovered. If you've read my overall review of Gallifrey (which is basically just me gushing about how amazing it is), then you'll know how much I love it. Some friends got me into … Continue reading Gallifrey: Time War 4 – The End of an Era
I’ve fallen into the black hole that is Gallifrey, and here’s why you should too.
Yeah, yeah, okay, we all know I love Doctor Who. Big surprise. But one of my favourite parts of the fandom that I've especially been falling in love with over the past few years is Big Finish. I could write a whole post just about Big Finish Productions, but for the sake of time I'll … Continue reading I’ve fallen into the black hole that is Gallifrey, and here’s why you should too.

My Favourite Doctor Who Speech
Today there was a worldwide rewatch of one of my favourite Doctor Who stories, The Zygon Invasion/Inversion. Though I wasn't able to participate due to the workload I currently have, it made me think about the first time I watched these episodes when they aired. Up until that point I had really liked the Twelfth … Continue reading My Favourite Doctor Who Speech
The War Doctor: Infernal Devices
I'm onto the second War Doctor box set! I was really surprised at how different in tone this box set is. Now that they've already introduced us to this series, Big Finish isn't afraid to go a little deeper and a little darker in the second installment. Once again, this review will only contain minor … Continue reading The War Doctor: Infernal Devices
