Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
And here’s the first ‘Basement News’ post for 2021! I’m keeping myself very busy with quite a number of projects. I’m currently enjoying what I’m doing to share new things on my blog. I hope to keep you all entertained in the early months of 2021 whilst we go through the current Covid-19 pandemic – please keep safe.
It’s fair to say that 2021 has had its ups and downs in January. I’m hopeful the year will be brighter and hopeful in its later months with the vaccine being rolled out in the UK. So far, the vaccination programme in the UK seems to be doing very well. For now, let me share with you what will be happening on my blog in February and beyond.
At the start of the year, I finished sharing my ‘Nyssa Challenge’ reviews from December 2020 into January 2021, looking into ‘The Keeper of Traken’ Target audiobook, ‘The Target Storybook’ (which includes ‘The Dark River’), ‘Thirteen Doctors, 13 Stories’ (which includes ‘Tip of the Tongue’), ‘Downward Spiral’, ‘Thin Time’ and ‘Madquake’, ‘The Clockwise War’ graphic novel (which includes ‘Blood Invocation’), and ‘Farewell, Sarah Jane’. For my next ‘Nyssa Challenge’ mini-review season for 2021-22, I hope to check out the sixth War Master box set ‘Killing Time’ (after I’ve checked out the first five, of course), the Target audiobooks of ‘Time-Flight’ and ‘Arc of Infinity’ and the ‘1963: Fanfare For The Common Men’ ASDA vinyl.
In January, I shared my reviews on the ‘Myth Makers’ DVD compilations I had for Christmas 2020, including ‘The Doctors: The Jon Pertwee Years’, ‘The Doctors: The Peter Davison Years’, ‘The Doctors: The Colin Baker Years’ and ‘The Doctors: The Paul McGann Years’. I also checked out Trevor Martin‘s ‘Myth Makers’ interview. I hope to share in-depth reviews of the ‘Myth Makers’ interview series very soon, hopefully for an ‘Advent Calendar’ series in December 2021. There will be special updated in-depth reviews of two ‘Myth Makers’ interviews coming very soon this month. 🙂
Back in January, I shared my initial TV review on the ‘Doctor Who’ New Year’s Day Special for 2021 called ‘Revolution of the Daleks’, starring Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill and John Barrowman. This month, I shared my updated Blu-ray review on the festive special. I’m currently working my way to getting the ‘March of the Thirteenth Doctor’ review season sorted out for March 2021. In the meantime, my reviews on ‘Molten Heart’, Series 12 of ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Adventures in Lockdown’ are currently available to check out.
In terms of Big Finish ‘Doctor Who’, I’ve been sharing my reviews on some Sixth Doctor, Constance and Flip audios, including stories like ‘Order of the Daleks’, ‘Absolute Power’, ‘Quicksilver’, ‘The Behemoth’ and ‘The Middle’. I’ll be sharing my reviews on ‘Static’, ‘Cry of the Vultriss’, ‘Scorched Earth’ and ‘The Lovecraft Invasion’ very soon. I also hope to share my reviews on ‘Out of Time’ with David Tennant and Tom Baker soon as well as on ‘The Flying Dutchman’/’Displaced’ with Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred and Philip Olivier. I also hope to share reviews on the latest ‘Star Cops’ audios including the audiobook ‘The Stuff of Life’ and the two ‘Mars’ box sets.
I’ve shared my latest ‘Short Trip’ featuring the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Billy called ‘The Curse of Dr. Filthy’. At present, I’m trying to find a way to getting my next ‘Fifth Doctor’ eight-part anthology called ‘The Coins of Deno’ uploaded to my blog. Hopefully the story will be uploaded by the time May/June comes along. Stay tuned! Thankfully, I got a chance to celebrate Nyssa’s 40th anniversary by inviting people to check out ‘The Nyssa Challenge’ and ‘The Fifth Doctor by Tim Bradley’ on ‘Bradley’s Basement’.
I’ve shared my review on the ‘Time Lord Victorious – Road to the Dark Times’ Blu-ray set on my blog. I’ve also reviewed the Special Edition Blu-ray of ‘The Power of the Daleks’ recently. I hope to share an updated review on ‘Fury From The Deep’ very soon. I also hope to share updated reviews on ‘Great British Car Journeys’ with Christopher Timothy and Peter Davison very soon as well as on Season 6 of ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’. I did share my reviews on Series 7 of ‘The Brittas Empire’ recently, completing the BBC sitcom series at last!
I’ve finally finishing sharing my reviews on the original ‘Spider-Man’ 1960s cartoon show by uploading my reviews on Volumes 1 and 2 of Season 3. I would like to check out the 1990s ‘Fantastic Four’ animated show sometime. Meanwhile, I’m currently enjoying the first ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ web-series being shown on Disney+ for 2021 called ‘WandaVision’, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. I’ve shared my reviews on the first four episodes already.
I’ve also finished sharing my reviews on the last three episodes of ‘The Muppets’ 2015-16 series, which I’ve greatly enjoyed watching on Disney+. I’m currently looking forward to when the original ‘Muppet Show’ in all of its five seasons becomes available on Disney+. I hope to check out and review each season as my parents and I go through them.
I’ve shared my reviews on the ‘Die Hard’ film series recently. I’ve enjoyed watching movies via Disney+, Google Play and Amazon Prime Video recently. This includes movies like the 1981 film ‘Amy’, ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, ‘Knives Out’ and ‘Because of Winn-Dixie’. I’m currently looking forward to checking out and reviewing ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – The Ultimate Edition’ in time for the upcoming ‘Justice League: The Synder Cut’.
I saw ‘Empire of Dreams: The Story of the ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy’ making-of documentary recently. I’ve added my review on the documentary to the ‘Return of the Jedi’ review. In May, a ‘Star Wars Sequels Review Season’ will be shared, including reviews on the original Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn and on ‘Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker’.
Sadly, the ‘Bedford Who Charity Con’ that I was looking forward to in April this year has been rescheduled to October later in the year due to the current pandemic. But I’m still looking forward to the convention and Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton are currently confirmed as guests for the event. I hope to see them there in October. If I see Sarah and/or Peter again at a virtual event before that, I’ll be happy too. 🙂
Sometime in March/April 2021, I’ll be sharing a set of reviews on some Judy Garland films including ‘Easter Parade’ and 1954’s ‘A Star is Born’. I would like to do some film review seasons on the ‘X-Men’ movies as well as on the ‘Transformers’ films. Whether that’ll happen though is yet to be determined.
Quite a lot of things are going to be happening on my blog from here on. I hope I’ll be able to achieve all I want in February and beyond and I hope I’ll be able to keep you entertained with the things I share. Things do seem currently grim in many parts of the world, but I’m hopeful for the future and I pray that 2021 will get better as the months go on. In the meantime, keep checking out what I share on ‘Bradley’s Basement’.
Many thanks to everyone who has supported my blog!

Bye for now!
