Great fun for serious and casual players alike

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but terrible flawed, 3 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I grabbed this as something I could use to check out when I'm looking to find out which actor was in which film. It covers the film's and most of the main cast. It does suffer from some terrible typos, misspellings and even some inaccuracies (I don't think Bill Owen was born in 1825!) The summaries are pretty sparse and it reads like someone knocked it together in a day or two. So much potential wasted!

If you only ever buy one Classic Doctor Who story, let it be this one. Generally considered the best story with the best companion of the best doctor to play the role. I won't spoil the story but it really is worth every second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with the first season? Trust me, season 2 turns it on its head and is brilliant!, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After the disappointment of the big budgeted but poorly realised Blackadder, the BBC almost ditched the idea. Then Ben Elton and Richard Curtis got together and produced (what I consider to be) the best Blackadder season of the lot. Blackadder II. It is set in the era of Queen Elizabeth II and Blackadder is a mere Lord rather than a Prince. They changed the dynamics and made Baldrick incredibly stupid, Blackadder an evil genius and kaboom! We have six tightly written and well structured scripts that are guaranteed to have you laughing from start to finish. Queen Elizabeth, far from being the strong, austere woman depicted in history is an immature girly who has let power go straight to her head. Her closest and most trusted companion being her nurse who still treats her like a two year old is joined by Lord Melchet, Queenie's most trusted advisor with a severe dislike of Edmund Blackadder.

Many people say the fourth series is the best. I feel that is because of the nearness of the first world war and the familiarity that brings to the stories. Personally, I think this is the best season by far!

If the first season had you reaching for the off button, give this season a try. You won't regret it!


Halloween 3 - Season of the Witch

4.0 out of 5 stars Not canon but very watchable, 19 May 2015
For those expecting Michael Myers to make an appearance, you'll be disappointed. The money men decided to try and cash in on the Halloween franchise by releasing another movie under the Halloween banner. I say it isn't canon as it has nothing whatsoever to do with the main Halloween movie story but is a story in its own right.

Silver Shamrock make the best halloween masks you can buy. EVERYONE wants one and they are having a special show on Halloween night which only adds to the demand. There are mysterious goings on and people had died or gone missing when looking under the surface of the customer friendly persona of Silver Shamrock and its owner, Conal Cochran.

The movie itself is dated, which is half its appeal, and the story is good albeit slightly thin in places. It's very much an enjoyable 90 minutes when you sit down with a beer and a suspension of belief. If you're looking for a serious scare, look at the original Halloween. If you're looking for a bit of fun and a story that is very watchable, you'll do a lot worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic and the best. Still brilliant 50+ years later, 5 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Classic and the best. Still brilliant 50+ years later. There are few episodes you would consider particularly poor, in fact most of them are very strong. The main exceptions being "The Last Flight" and "The Mighty Casey" but that's a personal preference. With 34 other great episodes, you can forgive a couple of weak ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic novel, 14 Jun. 2014
I backed the kickstarter so I can't speak for the quality of the kindle release but I've read the book itself. All I can say is WOW! The story is nicely paced with well fleshed out characters and great descriptions. You can easily believe that this was written by a better known author by the quality of the writing. If you do any decent writing course, you'll be told to show not tell the story and Drew does this brilliantly.

I played the original Elite and am a Beta backer in the Kickstarter and it all weaves in perfectly for the release. Great job Drew! I really hope you write more whether it be about the Elite universe or other sci fi. if this is anything to go by, you will do well. Highly recommended!
