Darker Projects: The Dreamers (part 2)

30 11 2009

After years of living as a human with Emma, The Doctor is trying to get back to his old self. Whilst Emma is confused and upset at the loss of Jason (The Doctor’s former guise), now he is no longer the man she knew and loved. Chameleon Arch stories have certainly become more en vogue after Human Nature aired, and I’ll be honest that I didn’t particularly care for Darker Projects’ previous story which followed Jasons change into The Doctor. However, the end result has been good. The series now has one of the most interesting Doctor companion dynamics, and it’s hard to tell how it will develop.

Also, the story itself has a lovely eerie quality, making good use of the imagery of Londons landmarks in distress – the Tate Modern, the tube. Along with the use of these mysterious horses. I’ve said previously that both the leads play their parts well, nothing’s changed there. It’s a solid production all round.

BrokenSea: News Flash

20 11 2009

New Earth covers the ongoing Cybermen invasion.


In other news The Doctor Who Audio Dramas have recently made mp3 versions of all their audios readily available from their site. Handy for the walkman.

Also this is Botcherby’s 100th post. Not that I care about such stat watching of course.

The WhoCast on Fan Audios

9 11 2009

For anyone who doesn’t subscribe to the DWO WhoCast podcast, their latest episode was all about fan audio dramas. They take a look at DAM Productions, DWAD, BTR Productions, and Crossover Adventures, giving an overview and balanced opinions on various stories. In fact, on the whole they are very favourable comments. So it could be of use to any of you thinking about listening to one of these audio groups. It’s a shame they didn’t cover some of the more recently started companies, but with so much choice maybe that will pave the way for a future show. They do ask for feedback and suggestions, so you can petition them at will. You may also have to protect your ears from the cheeky K-9 bashing at the start. I’m still waving my K-9 flag.

BrokenSea: New World Order & Update

5 11 2009

I don’t think I could possibly hype up Brokensea’s latest episode any more than their own description.

“Time has fallen. Olivia is in the garden. Amanda is in the void. And the Doctor… The Doctor does not exist.”

Also, thanks to a comment by Chivani, I’ve added info and links for the ‘Leela: Land of Silver’ 5 part mini-series. It was released in early 2008 by Misfits Audio. You can find it under Audios E-Z.
