5.0 out of 5 stars Tracks re-used, 2 April 2014
Nice little album but all tracks previously released.

Hope to see an album like Past Masters of the Beatles. It features tracks not on UK albums, single B-sides and other version of tracks like remix versions. Lets hope, as you would be amazed how many tracks you may not have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 1, Episode 3, 17 Mar 2014
This is Series 1, episode 3 of the Blake's 7 story Drones. It is part of the Classic Audio Adventures range of Blake's 7 stories from Big Finish Productions. It is a story that continues from episode 2.

In this full cast audio drama are Roj Blake (Gareth Thomas), Kerr Avon (Paul Darrow), Vila Restal (Michael Keating), Cally (Jan Chappell), Jenna Stannis (Sally Knyvette), Zen/Orac (Alistair Lock), Bru Renderson (Tim Treloar), Dr Cara Petrus (Sara Powell). It is written by Marc Platt and directed by Ken Bentley.

If you liked the story Warship, 1.1 Fractures and 1.2 Battleground then you will love this. I do not wish to give the plot to this adventure. If you want to know more then listen to the trailer at Big Finish Productions.

Big Finish produce new full cast stories/adventures with the classic Doctors of Doctor Who. Why not look out for more from Big Finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tardy-box back in flight..., 25 Feb 2014
Some people think that the 8th Doctor was short lived. When he played the role for the story The Night of the Doctor, he mentions past companions from Big Fishish audios. Here are some more full cast 8th Doctor audio adventures to listen to. It is not a CD-ROM as amazon are saying due to having the product. It follows on from the last box set of 8th Doctor stories. The stories are The Traitor, The White Room, Time's Harizon and Eyes Of The Master. These are a great listen. Alex MacQueen plays The Master in this set and is another name to join the list of actors to have portrayed the role. Please take the time to listen to the trailer at Big Finish Productions.

This is a great set. All you want from Mr. Bean not.
The only problem is this is not complete. Where are the Comic Relief recordings made?

5.0 out of 5 stars Steptoe and Son for America, 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sanford and Son is an American sitcom, based on the UK's BBC's Steptoe and Son by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. Sanford and Son was enormously popular and was one of the top ten highest-rated series on American television. Redd Foxx played Fred Sanford and Demond Wilson played Lamont Sanford. It ran for six-seasons.
The theme tune to Sanford and Son is titled "The Streetbeater" and was composed by Quincy Jones.
The story line is about the misadventures of a cantankerous (65-year-old) junk dealer and his (34-year-old) frustrated son. Fred is constantly putting down Lamont by calling him "Dummy". Every time Lamont threatenes to leave for meaningful work, Fred fakes a heart attack each time. He would say "Oh, this time its real, I'm a-comin' 'Lizabeth!". This was a sympathy ploy to get his son Lamont to stay.
Sanford and Son has never been shown in the UK, which I think is a shame. I purchased a copy of this show all because I had a Multi-region DVD player. From start to end I saw the funny side. The adapted Ray Galton and Alan Simpson story lines from Steptoe and Son are great. It was even good enough for me to decided to purchase a T-shirt.
Will this American classic ever get a british showing? Will the Sanford and Son Soundtrack LP get a re-release on CD? I am now waiting the release of "Sanford Arms", "Sanford" and "Grady" on DVD.
One extra thing, you get a surprise when you press stop. Instead of seeing your DVD logo screen a picture of Sanford and Son appears. It is a shame more DVD's do not do this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Time Of The Doctor..., 29 Dec 2013
What a waste of time putting other 11th Doctor Christmas specials with The Time Of The Doctor. For those who already have the other stories we do not buy again and again. We should ask 2entertain and the BBC for extra's not episodes already released. We need to get this story released on it's own. I would give The Time Of The Doctor 5 stars. With the re-release of the other stoies again 2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Country Single Version, 14 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great song taken from the album Fun In Space. The single version is now released in the box set The Lot. Would have like to see each disc in this box set released separately and that includes the extra non album discs. The song should have be release on a singles collection of The Cross and Roger Taylor's singles.
