Hello everyone! 🙂

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

And Happy New Year everyone! 🙂 It’s the penultimate instalment of the 2022-23 ‘Nyssa Challenge’ mini-review season today! Since it’s the 60th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’ this year, let’s revisit a Short Trips book anthology by Big Finish called ‘Short Trips: Transmissions’. One of the stories in the anthology has the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa in it.

That story of course is ‘Tweaker’ by Dan Abnett, with an audiobook reading by John Banks. The theme of ‘Short Trips: Transmissions’ is about messages. As well as ‘Tweaker’, there are also audiobook readings by John Banks on stories like ‘Only Connect’ with the Fourth Doctor, ‘Methuselah’ with the Fifth Doctor and Peri, and ‘Breadcrumbs’ with the Fourth Doctor and the second Romana.

Please feel free to check out, read and comment on my updated reviews on ‘Doctor Who and the Adaptation of Death’, ‘Policy to Invade’, ‘Only Connect’, ‘Gudok’, ‘Generation Gap’, ‘Lonely’, ‘Blue Road Dance’, ‘Tweaker’, ‘Link’, ‘Driftwood’, ‘Methuselah’, ‘Nettles’, ‘Larkspur’, ‘See No Evil’, ‘iNtRUsioNs’, ‘Breadcrumbs’ and ‘Transmission Ends’ by clicking on the links for them. You can purchase the ‘Short Trips: Transmissions’ book from or


Stay tuned tomorrow for my reviews on the Big Finish audio stories ‘Splinters’, ‘The Stuntman’ and ‘Quantum of Axos’, included in the ‘Tenth Doctor, Classic Companions’ box set, starring David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor, Louise Jameson as Leela, John Leeson as K-9, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa, and Sophie Aldred as Ace.

Bye for now!

Tim 🙂
