DR WHO REVIEWS #5: almost all meat’s artificial these days
Read post

The Fall of Yquatine by Nick Walters. Eighth Doctor (if you stick with this for long enough you will learn that 8th Dr = ALARM BELLS), Fitz and Compassion.
8th Dr books are the ones you need to look out for. As far as I gather they pretty much fall i[…]

DR WHO REVIEWS #4: We Travel
Read post

Cat’s Cradle: Time’s Crucible by Marc Platt. Seventh Doctor with Ace as the companion. Stupid Ace. Hey, whoever said these reviews would be impartial.
I’m starting with this bonkers New Adventure as it’s the next in published […]

WHO REVIEWS – THEY’RE ALIVE!
Way back in the mists of time, a certain Dan Perry of this Man2Man Parrish stated his intention of reviewing all Dr Who books, in chronological order via publication for the delectation of Brown Wedge Readers.[…]

The Flaming Lips ARE the Fearless Freaks (or one was)
Read post

I had heard a bit about an upcoming documentary on the Flaming Lips but didn’t immediately expect to be able to watch a copy on vacation in Europe — but such are the ways of staying with people who get promos. More importantly, The Fearl[…]

Lots of people have a Doctor
Read post

Because I’m a boring old sci-fi rockist, I didn’t get as much out of the new Doctor Who as most. Great start, lovely economy etc, but building up a series-wide theme to a climax written by Enya caused me to consider it a bit of a shame. N[…]

PUB 8: 8: THE PARADISE
Read post

By this point your intrepid reporter was flagging. The Paradise was the busiest pub we’d been in since the Elgin, several hours before, and clearly there were people who had been there all day, solely to watch the event (it was the only place […]

Tenuous Olympic Post
Read post

Now seems as good a time as any to ask this.
When I was small, about 7 or 8, I was staying with family friends in Cheshire, who had a son a couple years older than me. I remember this boy singing me a comic song about an encounter with a ram. The onl[…]

PUB 8: 7: The Western Arms
Read post

There is something gothic in the way this pub towers over the low-level business units surrounding it, the pub’s name, high up, broadcasts across the Sainsbury’s car park to the Paddington Rail Crash memorial stone. The first thing I goog[…]

PUB 8: 6: The Cowshed
Read post

We escaped the friendly man, and hushed tones were reserved for the grand sight of THE COWSHED. Rising in the distance it really is a very impressive pub from the outside. Not so much due to any great architecture, just the way it juts majestically o[…]

PUB 8: 5.The Eagle
Read post

Over the road, past the fire station and halfway through the crawl, The Eagle was a welcome change. Livelier than The Earl Percy and with a louder television. Just in time for the Scissor Sisters to do a new song – surely a bad idea. Luckily, t[…]
