CD Reviews – ‘Star Cops: Mars – Part 1’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s time to continue the ‘Star Cops’ series with some full-cast audio episodes! I’ve been able to check out and review the first three episodes of the ‘Mars’ saga of ‘Star Cops’. The ‘Mars’ saga comprises of six episodes altogether and would have formed the third season of the TV series had it not been cancelled in 1987 by the BBC.

The first ‘Mars’ box set of ‘Star Cops’ by Big Finish features the return of David Calder as Nathan Spring, Trevor Cooper as Colin Devis and Linda Newton as Pal Kenzy from the short-lived TV series. Rakhee Thakrar’s Priya Basu and Philip Olivier’s Paul Bailey sadly don’t appear in the first ‘Mars’ box set, but they will appear in the second box set. 🙂

As indicated, the first ‘Mars’ box set contains the first three episodes of the saga. They include ‘The New World’ by Andrew Smith, ‘The Shadow of This Red Rock’ by Una McCormack and ‘Whatever Happened to Gary Rice?’ by Guy Adams. Please feel free to check out, read and comment on my reviews for these three episodes by clicking on the links for them.

I’m currently looking forward to checking out and reviewing the second ‘Mars’ box set of ‘Star Cops’ audios by Big Finish. It’s sad Sarah Sutton (who plays Nyssa in ‘Doctor Who’) isn’t in any more ‘Star Cops’ episodes since her guest star appearance in ‘Hostage’ for the second ‘Mother Earth’ box set. I did enjoy hearing Oliver Dimsdale from ‘Grantchester’ appearing in the first ‘Mars’ episode called ‘The New World’.

You can purchase the ‘Star Cops: Mars – Part 1’ CD box set or as a download from; and/or the Big Finish website.

Enjoy! 🙂

Bye for now!

Tim. 🙂
