Basement News – September 2021

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s getting close to October time where I’ll be attending the ‘Bedford Who Charity Con’. I hope to reunite with ‘Doctor Who’ stars Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton as well as Janet Fielding who’s been added to the guest list lately. It looks to be an exciting event! There are also other exciting things to look forward to in September and beyond.

Once again, let me share with you what I’ve added to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ lately in August and the first four days of September as well as what I hope to share with you in September and beyond. There is more ‘Doctor Who’, TV, film and audio reviews to check out on my blog as well as other exciting things, including celebrating the blog’s sixth anniversary at the end of September. 🙂

In September, I’ll be sharing my next review on the third ‘War Master’ story by Big Finish – ‘Rage of the Time Lords’, starring Sir Derek Jacobi and Paul McGann. In the post, I’ve received my CD box set of ‘Killing Time’, starring Derek Jacobi, Katy Manning and Sarah Sutton. I’m looking forward to checking it out as well as my CD box set of ‘The Lost Resort and Other Stories’, starring Peter Davison, Sarah Sutton, Janet Fielding, George Watkins and Matthew Waterhouse. I hope to receive that in the post this month in time for my upcoming ‘Nyssa Challenge’ mini-review season from December 2021 to January 2021.

I’ve recently started my review season on the ‘Time Lord Victorious’ series of ‘Doctor Who’. Check out my reviews on the stories featured in the ‘Road to the Dark Times’ Blu-ray. The first ‘TLV’ story to be reviewed and shared on my blog was the comic story ‘Defender of the Daleks’. Coming up this month, there will be reviews on the ‘The Official Annual 2021’ of ‘Doctor Who’, ‘Monstrous Beauty’, ‘The Knight, the Fool and the Dead’ and ‘Master Thief’/‘Lesser Evils’.

I’ve recently shared my updated reviews on the stories featured in the Season 24 Blu-ray box set of ‘Doctor Who’, starring Sylvester McCoy, Bonnie Langford and Sophie Aldred. They include ‘Time and the Rani’, ‘Paradise Towers’, ‘Delta and the Bannermen’ and ‘Dragonfire’. I’ve also reviewed the Target novelization/audiobook of ‘Dragonfire’ by Ian Briggs, read by Bonnie Langford. I’ve also shared my updated Blu-ray review on ‘The Web of Fear’, starring Patrick Troughton, Frazer Hines and Deborah Watling. I’m looking forward to checking out the new animation version of ‘The Evil of the Daleks’, which should be out on DVD/Blu-ray this month.

I recently shared a tribute to the Divergent Wordsmiths to celebrate their fourth anniversary. I’m currently in the process of writing two new short stories for an upcoming anthology by the Divergent Wordsmiths called ‘The Paul Spragg ReCollections, Volume 2′. Whilst work on ‘The Coins of Deno’ is currently slow, I will be sharing a special surprise later in the year about the upcoming Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Billy anthology by me soon. Stay tuned! I’m currently working on the fifth episode of ‘The Coins of Deno’.

I’ve recently finished the ‘X-Men Film Review Season’ with ‘X-Men’ films like ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’ and ‘The New Mutants’. I’ve enjoyed revisiting and checking out the ‘X-Men’ films. Hopefully I’ll do updated reviews on ‘Deadpool’ and ‘Deadpool 2’ as well as check out the third Wolverine film ‘Logan’ soon. I might check out the ‘X-Men’ 1990s animated TV series on Disney+ sometime soon.

My parents and I are currently revisiting the world of Middle-Earth through ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film trilogies. I’ll soon be sharing my review on the 2019 biographical film ‘Tolkien’, starring Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins. I also hope to revisit and update my reviews on ‘The Lord of the Rings’ BBC radio series. Stay tuned for more news regarding my updated reviews on the radio series.

I’ve shared more ‘Thunderbirds’ reviews lately, including on the 1968 film ‘Thunderbird 6’, the anniversary episodes of ‘Thunderbirds’, and the latest Anderson Entertainment/Big Finish audio adaptation and novel of ‘Terror From The Stars’. I hope to share another ‘Thunderbirds’-related review on the 2004 ‘Thunderbirds’ film, directed by Jonathan Frakes. I also hope to share quick reviews on the ‘Stingray’ TV series and the ‘Stingray’ audiobook ‘Operation Icecap’.

I’ve recently shared quick reviews on Series 2 of ‘Downton Abbey’ as well as the first Christmas Special ‘Christmas at Downton Abbey’. My parents and I are currently watching Series 3. This is all in preparation before the release of the film ‘Downton Abbey: A New Era’ at cinemas in March 2022. I will soon be sharing my complete and updated reviews on Series 9 of ‘Call the Midwife’ soon before we move onto Series 10. My parents and I are also currently watching Series 6 of ‘Grantchester’ on ITV1. The first episode of Series 6 transmitted recently on ITV1 last Friday. I’ll be sharing a review on that later today.

I’ve seen six episodes of the Disney/Pixar series on Disney+ called ‘Monsters at Work’! I’ve greatly enjoyed seeing this sequel series to ‘Monsters Inc.’. I hope to check out the other four episodes of this series soon. I also hope to check out the latest Disney/Pixar series on Disney+ called ‘Dug Days’, which is a sequel series to the Disney/Pixar film ‘Up’. This will be a good way to commemorate Edward Asner who sadly passed away recently. I’ve shared a quick review on Season 1 of ‘The Muppet Show’ lately. My parents and I are currently watching Season 2 on Disney+

It’s been pretty busy in terms of seeing movies on Disney+ and Google Play and seeing them at the cinema. On Disney+, I’ve seen movies like ‘The Poseidon Adventure’, ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, ‘Far From Home: The Adventures of Yellow Dog’ and ‘Eight Below’. At the cinema, I’ve seen movies like 2021’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ (along with 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’ on Google Play) and ‘Free Guy’ with Ryan Reynolds’. I’ve also shared some thoughts on the latest trailers for the films ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts on movies at the cinema like ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ and ‘No Time to Die’. I will also be sharing a review on ‘The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea’ soon.

I will soon be sharing some ‘convention memories’ about the ‘Regenerations 2013’ convention in Swansea back in September 2013. Like I said, the time is drawing near for ‘Bradley’s Basement’s sixth anniversary. There will be a collection of blog posts on the last day of September, including a discussion on the ‘Doctor Who’ story ‘The Keeper of Traken’. I’m holding back on revealing more surprises for ‘BB’s sixth anniversary, so stay tuned and watch this space. 🙂

There’s no doubt that things are significantly different compared to how they were last year. I’m hoping things will stay that way and will continue to improve. I’m currently looking forward to attending the ‘Bedford Who Charity Con’ this year with Peter Davison, Sarah Sutton and Janet Fielding attending. There’s so much to look forward to in the rest of 2021, but I hope to savour the things I’m looking forward to and not rush them. Before we know it, it will soon be Christmas in December. 😀

In the meantime, please continue to keep safe!

Thanks again to everyone who keeps supporting my blog!

Many thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

Tim. 🙂

    Good morning Tim.

    I’m impressed by what you’ve announced for this month and beyond. I’m sure ‘The Coins of Deno’ will be great to read. I’ll wait to purchase ‘The Lost Resort’ and other stories once I’ve finished ‘Madquake’. I’m still not subscribed to Disney+ at the moment. I am subscribed to Britbox though. I’ve been making my way through episodes of ‘Red Dwarf’ on DVD (series 1-7) and Britbox (series 8). I’ve seen episodes of ‘Thunderbirds’ and ‘Stingray’ as well as ‘Joe 90′, Space: 1999’ and ‘Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons’. I’m also enjoying ‘Sink or Swim’. Once I’ve finished series 1, I’ll share my thoughts on the show so far.

    I hope you enjoy the ‘Bedford Who Charity Con’. I wish I could go, but my family would rather we didn’t go to any more conventions until next year. It’s a shame because it would be nice to meet Peter, Sarah and Janet for the first time, but it’s probably for the best. Do you think you’ll tell Sarah about how you, me, Timelord007 and Wolfie are celebrating Nyssa’s 40th anniversary? If possible, we could celebrate Tegan’s 40th anniversary by doing a ‘Strange Love’ on ‘Logopolis’ and then ‘Castrovalva’ for the anniversary of the Fifth Doctor.

    P.s. have you managed to read any more of my fanfics.

    Take care, WF92.

      Hi WF92,

      Hopefully an episode of ‘The Coins of Deno’ will be shared by me later this month. I’m looking forward to when ‘The Lost Resort and Other Stories’ comes out. I tend to watch more stuff on Disney+ as opposed to Britbox, but I’m hoping to see more of ‘Stingray’ and hopefully see ‘Space: 1999’ soon.

      I’m looking forward to ‘Bedford Who Comic Con’. There’s quite a bit to get sorted before then, but hopefully all will be well by the time I see Sarah, Peter and Janet again in October. I hope you’ll be able to go to conventions soon. They are fun events to attend. I’ll certainly consider it about telling Sarah of our 40th anniversary celebration for Nyssa. I’ll also consider future ‘Strange Loves’ on ‘Logopolis’ and ‘Castrovalva’.

      I haven’t been able to read more of your stories lately. I hope to read another chapter of your ‘Four Travellers and a Baby’ story later on.

      Best wishes,
      Tim
