Basement News – June 2022

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s time for another ‘Basement News’ blog post on ‘Bradley’s Basement’ and what better time to share it than over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend in June 2022. 🙂 And it’s the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in the UK! I hope you’re enjoying the Spring Bank Holiday weekend as much as I am. And if you’re enjoying the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, that’s good too. 😀

Anyway, let’s talk about what’s going to be happening in June and beyond on ‘Bradley’s Basement’. I’m currently getting things ready for attending the ‘Newcastle Comic Con’ in July, run by Unleashed Events, where Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton, my two favourite ‘Doctor Who’ stars, will be attending. Hopefully, all will go according to plan when the time comes to attend the event. 🙂

Speaking of Sarah Sutton, some good news on my part. The four-part educational video drama called ‘TravelWise’ is now available to check out on YouTube. I’m pleased this has been released on YouTube, as I’ve wanted people to see this video drama ever since I first saw it on VHS-converted-into-DVD-for-private-viewing back in 2015. Check out ‘TravelWise’ on YouTube as well as my review.

In May, I had my birthday. The presents I received included ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League Trilogy’ on Blu-ray, ‘The Incredible Hulk’ TV series on DVD and the BBC sitcom TV series ‘Sorry’ on DVD. I hope to share quick reviews on ‘The Incredible Hulk’ TV series and the BBC sitcom TV series ‘Sorry’ soon. I’ll probably do detailed reviews on ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League Trilogy’ in 2023 or 2024.

I enjoyed watching ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ at the cinema for my birthday this year. I’ve also seen the two ‘Top Gun’ movies with Tom Cruise – the first one on Prime Video at home and the second one at the cinema. For future films at the cinema, I’m hoping to see ‘Lightyear’ in June and ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ in July. I’ve shared my thoughts on ‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning: Part One’ and ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ based on their latest film trailers.

In terms of Disney+ viewing, I’ve shared my reviews on the films ‘Hidalgo’ and ‘Saving Mrs. Banks’ as well as ‘Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers’ on my blog. I’ll soon be sharing a review on the 2011 film ‘The Musketeers’ as well as Season 3 of ‘The Muppet Show’. I’m halfway through Series 2 of ‘Alex Rider’. Hopefully, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on that soon as well as Season 2 of ‘Star Trek: Picard’, ‘Moon Knight’, ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ and so much more.

Going back to ‘Doctor Who’, I’ve shared more reviews on Big Finish audios like ‘The Holy Terror’ and ‘The Maltese Penguin’ featuring the Sixth Doctor and Frobisher. I’ve also reviewed ‘Mind of the Hodiac’ with the Sixth Doctor and Mel and ‘Respond to All Calls’ with Christopher Eccleston. I’m currently working on reviewing the comic stories featuring the Sixth Doctor, Peri and Frobisher in the ‘Voyager’ graphic novel as well as the third ‘Ninth Doctor Adventures’ box set called ‘Lost Warriors’.

On my birthday, Ncuti Gatwa was announced as the Fourteenth Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’. Check out my thoughts on his casting as the new Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’ for the neo-Russell T. Davies era. I’ve received my Blu-ray copy of ‘Eve of the Daleks’ and ‘Legend of the Sea Devils’ and hope to share updated in-depth reviews on the two ‘Doctor Who’ specials soon before the BBC Centenary Special comes along.

In May, I revisited the ‘P.R.O.B.E.’ series by BBV and shared my review on ‘Ghosts of Winterborne’, the fourth and final episode to feature Caroline John as Liz Shaw. There will come a time where I’ll be reviewing ‘When to Die’, the final ‘P.R.O.B.E.’ episode in the series, but it’s likely that I’ll be reviewing that episode in 2023, hopefully sometime in May or June.

I’m still working on uploading ‘Return to Christmas’, the next Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Billy story to be featured on my blog in December 2022. Thankfully, I’m three chapters away from finishing uploading the story to my blog. I’m hoping to have it all uploaded by the end of June before I go away to Newcastle in July. Hopefully I’ll have time to work on a submission pitch for ‘The Paul Spragg Memorial Short Trips Opportunity’ by Big Finish before the end of June and then work on a 60th anniversary special of ‘Doctor Who’ of my own for 2023.

I’ve also reviewed the first of the ‘Star Trek: Prometheus’ book/audio trilogy called ‘Fire with Fire’ by Bernd Perplies and Christian Humberg. I’m currently checking out the second book ‘The Root of All Rage’ and hope to share my review on that soon. I’m slowly working my way through reviewing Season 1 of ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ on DVD. I hope to complete my reviews on Season 1 of ‘Voyager’ soon in June.

I’ve shared new reviews on films such as the 1987 film adaptation of ‘Little Dorrit’ and the 2007 film ‘Becoming Jane’. I’m currently revisiting the ‘Spider-Man’ movies that have been so far. I hope to update my reviews on the first eight movies with new thoughts and photos before I do my full-on in-depth review on ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.

There’s a new page about Douglas Adams on my blog and I’ve reviewed the first season of ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ radio series called ‘Primary Phase’. Once I’ve finished the ‘Star Trek: Prometheus’ book trilogy, I hope to check out and review ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ book by Douglas Adams as well as the TV series and hopefully the first ‘Dirk Gently’ book and its 2010-12 TV series.

In these times when we feel uncertain about life in general, hopefully my blog is a good place for people to check out and enjoy my thoughts and views on things that I enjoy like ‘Doctor Who’, movies, TV shows, etc. I’m looking forward to attending the ‘Newcastle Comic Con’ in July with Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton as guests. I hope you’ve got things to look forward to for the rest of 2022 as well as enjoying my blog at the same time. 😀

Once again, thanks for continuing to support my blog and please continue to keep safe!

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

Tim. 🙂
