Jubilee (Doctor Who)
Jubilee (Doctor Who)
by Robert Shearman
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars From the 6th to the 9th!, 23 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jubilee (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Excellent bit of Doctor Who audio! And another one of those that shows the 6th Doctor as he was almost becoming on TV. Plus nice to hear one of those stories that like Paul Cornell's 'Human Nature' that made it in adapted form into the TV series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer class!, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really glad to have found it after a couple of years searching. The last batch of The Avengers made in black and white - before the series moved into colour for 1967 season. This includes probably one of my all time fave Avengers episodes of all time. Yep - we're talking "A Touch of Brimstone" with a wonderful OTT performance by Peter Wyngarde as the villain of the week. And Mrs Peel and the snake as well!

3.0 out of 5 stars Problem with generic cartridges, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Normally I'd give four stars - but because the black ink cartridge failed to work properly it's only going to 3. Tried all afternoon to get the black to actually work - but when you're dealing with a picky/tempramental Epson printer it's a different matter entirely! Great value nonetheless.

Doctor Who: Shada

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait!, 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Shada (Paperback)
5 Stars - it's definitely worth it - and for long-term Who fans like myself who've been waiting whether it would finally make it into print. What you get is Douglas Adams' wit, and rrading closely there's some nice (and very subtle) references to the current incarnation of the TV series. Read this back-to-back with Douglas Adams 1st Dirk Gently book - which features Prof Chronotis and which makes for an interesting comparison. As elements of Shada got reused in the Dirk Gently book. What else can I say? Gareth Roberts has done an excellent job of bring to life late 70's Doctor Who, and captures Tom Baker's Doctor & Lalla Ward's Romana exactly.

Some Things Just Stick in... [7" VINYL]

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Vashti, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a tune I've up to this point only know via the Stones own version which cropped up on the mid 70's "Metamorphosis" compilation. This version by Vashti Bunyan is wonderful in its own way - and for fans of her "Just Another Diamond Day" should seriously check this out. It's in same category as Nico's debut on Immmediate "I'm Not Saying" - not technically perfect by any means - but still with it's own intrinsic chart - and a great bit 60's pop as well. Not much more I can really add!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bowie back on form, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Next Day [VINYL] (Vinyl)
It's becoming a bit an event - a new Bowie record, and I have to say the 10 year wait for this one was well worth it! Listening to a couple times so far and each time you do it reveals more of itself. There are nods the past - most obviously the Berlin references on "Where Are We Now?" - the sleeve's recycling of the "Heroes" cover - as well as references to shopping in Finchley area of North London in the late 60's - plus I also spotted the refrain that Bowie first used in "Ching-A-Ling" and then later on "Saviour Machine" popping up one track. Plus Bowie's singing the best it's been in ages - backed by the stalwarts of his band over the years - Gail Ann Dorsey on bass, and Earl Slick on guitar - and Tony Visconti behind the desk. Plus - it's sounds great on vinyl too!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Under-rated Classic!, 24 Feb. 2013
This review is from: 1969 (Audio CD)
This is a bit of sleeping classic - and one that'll sneak up on you without your realizing it! First up for anyone expecting the type of stuff Jools did with Brian Auger and the Trinity - then this may not be for you! However for anybody else if you want to hear Julie Driscoll beginning to creatively flex - then read on.
The album was recorded as its title suggests in 1969 - but with the usual record label type stuff (mainly manager Giorgio Gomelsky's label Marmalade folding) meant that it did get released until 2 years later in 1971. Music-wise the subjects are freedom and the chances to do stuff for yourself. Which in personal and creative terms for Jools meant writing and playing her own material and to escape from the shadow and expectations of the massive hit that was 'This Wheel's On Fire'- that's her on acoustic guitar - alongside soon-to-be husband Keith Tippett, plus Blossom Toes providing the backing on a number of tracks. The highlight of the album for me has to be "The Choice", although it's run a close second by the opener "A New Awakening", "Break Out" and "Walk Down". In fact the whole thing's rather brilliant. And it's from this I've got back to listening and appreciating the stuff she did with Brian Auger and the Trinity a whole lot more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Restoration, 14 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This one from the Pertwee era that I remember from it's original broadcast way back in 1971 and one that always stuck in my mind. Saw it again as part of Doctor Who's 30 anniversary in it's "restored/colourised" version and then I thought it was OK but quite as good as I remembered it. However watching it again on DVD have to say I'm a fan of it again, and here the picture quality is far better on the '93 version. Mainly as the digital restoration techniques now available are 20 years on from where they were back in the early 90's. So is it any good? If you like your Doctor a la Pertwee - esp the UNIT era then this is the one for you. Jo, Benton, Yates, The Brig and Roger Delgardo's Master. Plus for the trainspotting Who fraternity there's a great scene which gives you the blokes who operated the Daleks, voiced the pepper-pots and the Cybermen in the 60's. One other bit of trivia - there was talk at one time of doing a movie version - Edward Woodward as The Doctor and Christopher Lee as The Master (sort of an unofficial follow-up to The Wicker Man). Which would have been interesting to see!
