Basement News – July 2022

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

I admit, this ‘Basement News’ blog post is rather late compared to posting them early every month in the year. Recently, I had a very exciting time attending the ‘Newcastle Comic Con’ in July 2022. I saw my two favourite ‘Doctor Who’ stars Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton at the comic con. I’ve also done an interview with Sarah and shared some highlights of her Q&A on YouTube.

I hope to see Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton again at another convention sometime soon in the future. In the meantime, let me share with you what’s currently happening on ‘Bradley’s Basement’ and what will be happening in July and beyond. Hopefully, there’ll be plenty to enjoy in the remaining months of 2022.

Firstly, I should let you know that I’ve finished preparing my upcoming Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Billy story for December 2022 called ‘Return to Christmas’. It will feature the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa and Billy battling the Daleks at Christmas time. 😀 Stay tuned for surprises in the build-up to the story’s release in December this year. In the meantime, I’m currently preparing a couple of 60th anniversary celebratory stories of ‘Doctor Who’, including a short story for an upcoming anthology by the Divergent Wordsmiths called ‘A Sparkle of Doctors’, which you can find out more about here.

I’ve recently shared my updated review on ‘Eve of the Daleks’ and ‘Legend of the Sea Devils’ with Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, Mandip Gill as Yaz and John Bishop as Dan. Hopefully, to tie in with the release of the BBC Centenary Special of ‘Doctor Who’ in the autumn of 2022, I hope to review at least one Thirteenth Doctor book/audio adventure, possibly ‘Combat Majicks’ read by Mandip Gill, to see Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor off. I also hope to check out the Target novelizations/audiobooks of ‘The Fires of Pompeii’ and ‘The Eaters of Light’ sometime soon.

For July, I’m hoping to make a start on updating my reviews on the Season 22 ‘Doctor Who’ stories with Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor, based on the recent Blu-ray box set release. This will include updated reviews on the stories ‘Attack of the Cybermen’, ‘Vengeance on Varos’, ‘The Mark of the Rani’, ‘The Two Doctors’, ‘Timelash’ and ‘Revelation of the Daleks’. I’m also hoping to share a quick review on ‘The Doctors – The Peter Davison Years: Behind the Scenes’ DVD sometime soon.

In terms of Big Finish reviews, I’ve recently reviewed ‘Lost Warriors’ and ‘Old Friends’ in ‘The Ninth Doctor Adventures’, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor. I hope to review ‘Back to Earth’ with Christopher Eccleston sometime soon. Before that however, I have the rest of the ‘Out of Time’ trilogy with David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor to check out as well as the seventh ‘War Master’ story called ‘Self-Defence’, starring Sir Derek Jacobi and David Tennant.

As well as sharing my latest blog posts about attending the ‘Newcastle Comic Con’ in July 2022, I’ve also shared my latest ‘convention memories’ blog post on the ‘Time Warp’ convention I attended in Weston-super-Mare, back in July 2014. I’m planning to write up another ‘convention memories’ blog post for the ‘Pandorica 2014’ convention in Bristol, which I attended back in September 2014. Stay tuned. 🙂

I’ve recently shared my completed reviews on Season 1 of ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ as well as my review on the second ‘Star Trek: Prometheus’ book/audiobook called ‘The Root of All Rage’. I’m hoping to share my review on the third ‘Star Trek: Prometheus’ book/audiobook called ‘In the Heart of Chaos’ sometime soon in July/August 2022. I also hope to check out Season 2 of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ sometime soon on Prime Video.

I’m currently revisiting the ‘Spider-Man’ movies, as I hope to do a brand-new in-depth review on the latest film ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, featuring Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire. On my blog, I’ve shared my updated reviews on the first two ‘Spider-Man’ films with Tobey Maguire. Stay tuned for updated ‘Spider-Man’ film reviews for the next two months. 😀

I’ve shared a quick DVD review on the TV series ‘Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons’ and I’ve shared my complete reviews on Series 2 of ‘It Ain’t Half Hot Mum’. I’m still working my way through checking out ‘The Incredible Hulk’ TV series, which I’m currently enjoying. I hope to share a quick DVD box set review on the BBC TV sitcom series ‘Sorry’ with Ronnie Corbett. I also hope to share a quick review on a ‘Tom and Jerry’ movie I’ve purchased quite recently.

I’ve reviewed Season 3 of ‘The Muppet Show’ on Disney+. In terms of movies I’ve seen on Disney+ recently, they include the 2011 film adaptation of ‘The Three Musketeers’, ‘Marley & Me’ and the two ‘Princess Diaries’ movies. I hope to share a review on ‘Nightmare Alley’ soon. I’ve also reviewed Series 2 of the ‘Alex Rider’ TV series on Prime Video.

At the cinema, I saw the film ‘Lightyear’, which I found disappointing. I’ve also checked out the six ‘Jurassic Park’ films, including the original ‘Jurassic Park’ film trilogy and the latest ‘Jurassic World’ film trilogy. I hope to check out the latest ‘MCU’ film ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ at the cinema as well as see the 1970 film ‘The Railway Children’ on Prime Video before I see ‘The Railway Children Return’ at the cinema. Very soon, I’ll be sharing my latest cinema experience of seeing the two ‘Doctor Who’ movies, starring Peter Cushing. Stay tuned!

When I saw Sarah Sutton recently in Newcastle, we agreed that the world we’re living in is currently a crazy one. Hopefully, my blog is enough to distract you from all the hardships and crises that are going on in the world. I enjoy doing what I do on my blog and I’m hoping there’ll be plenty of things to enjoy in the rest of 2022, especially as I get things ready for ‘Bradley’s Basement’s 7th anniversary in September as well as ‘Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary in 2023.

Thank you very much for continuing to support my blog. Please continue to keep safe!

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

Tim 🙂

    Hi Tim.

    Apologies for the rather late reply. I was going to comment on this news bulletin this morning, but forgot. I’m especially looking forward to your updated reviews of Season 22. My review of ‘The Caves of Androzani’ will be available tomorrow, after which I will start re-watching ‘The Twin Dilemma’ in order to review that before finally getting onto Season 22.

    My ‘Full Circle’ review will be available to view next week. I am of course planning on reviewing more ‘Doctor Who’ novelisations in the future. I would like to do them on the same page as the tv versions, like how you’ve done it. Although you’ve done your reviews as pages, whereas I’ve done them as posts. I’m sure it won’t be difficult though.

    I’ve almost finished writing up ‘States of Being – Cold’ so I will email it to you for your verdict on it. I will share my thoughts on ‘Spare Parts’ once I’ve finished it, as well as ‘Hexagora’, ‘The Children of Seth’ and ‘Aquitane’ as I have ordered those.

    Take care, WF92.
