Planet Skaro: Sting of the Time Bees (episode two)

31 07 2010

Planet Skaro returned on good form last week. There are plenty of gigglesome moments, as Edward has his life unravelled by the invading Time Bees. It’s a top notch production with well acted new characters, and bodes well for the coming stories. The concluding episode is out now.

Planet Skaro: The Sting of The Time Bees (episode one)

24 07 2010

They’re back.

I’ve got to say Planet Skaro Audios have a knack with titles. From the mysterious ‘The Kalrexi Mutation’ to the pulpy adventure sound of ‘The Sting of the Time Bees’. And they don’t skimp when it comes to world and character building as you’ll see with this stories blurb. If you’re not familiar with Planet Skaro, expect larger than life characters, interesting plots and alien worlds wrapped in a lighthearted sense of humour.

Sadly, what they don’t have just now is a fresh webpage for this story, and so I’ll repost their blurb with the link. Sometime soon the full info should appear on their main page here – http://www.planetskaro.org.uk/creative/audio/


“The Time Bees are coming, Ed. They’re coming for YOU.”

NOROMBRA. A world of myths and legends, ruled by a tyrannical Queen.

GENE BRADLEY. The playboy billionaire businessman and movie star. A gentleman and an adventurer.

LORD RAXBONE. Ice Lord of Mars. His mission: to recapture the honour of the Martian Empire.

The Doctor’s companion Edward Bradley is thrust into a world of intrigue and mayhem. But being executed by the Palace Guard and escaping the clutches of the Ice Warriors are the least of his worries. Because Ed has been marked by the Time Bees… and the cataclysmic events that follow will shake Norombra to it’s core and bring the whole galaxy under threat!

Ed has one hope left – that the Doctor will save him. Only this time the Doctor has problems of his own. After all, how can he save Ed… if he can’t even save himself?

Empires will crumble, secrets will be revealed and loads of people will die in… The STING of the TIME BEES!”

PS. They have an RSS feed now too. Although that does risk making this blog a little redundant it’s a good feature (that not everyone is doing so don’t leave me).

DWAD: End of Innocence (episode one)

24 07 2010

The ever reliable Doctor Who Audio Dramas have released the first part of their second story this year. It’s a question of character this time, as The Doctor’s tendency to spontaneously intervene has terrible results. More at the link.

Big Rip-Off: Destiny of the Anoraks – plus News and Previews

22 07 2010

And finishing off the Anorak Trilogy is parts two and three of Destiny of the Anoraks, featuring a well known mischievous monk. For anyone that doesn’t enjoy having to listen to audio plays through youtube, you might want to check out http://www.dirpy.com/. An online service that can download the audio from youtube into an mp3 file. There are lots of sites like this if you do a quick google, but I’ve found Dirpy to be a reliable free version. I much prefer loading up my walkman and listening wherever I like, so this has been really useful.

More exciting news has popped up this week. Planet Skaro is gearing up for another run of audios. Their fourth season, which is quite an achievement. Especially as they are actually good. Ha. They’ve put up a sneek trailer which I’ve had to link to directly. More on the first audio when it arrives.

Season 4 trailer


If that’s not enough, BTR productions has announced it’s return from beyond the grave. Potentially with a few more audio stories to round off their already 3 season long series. Some years ago there was mention of an unfinished audio, and so hopefully that and more will see the light of day.

BrokenSea: East of the Sun, West of the Moon

3 07 2010

Episode five of the continuing BrokenSea adventures has landed. And I do love that title. The story itself concerns a bounty hunter’s search for justice across the timestreams. Intriguing.
