Book/Audio review – ‘The Root of All Rage’ (Star Trek: Prometheus)

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s time to check out the second book/audiobook of the ‘Star Trek: Prometheus’ trilogy. The second book is called ‘The Root of All Rage’ by Bernd Perplies and Christian Humberg and the audiobook is read by Alec Newman. It’s a shame there doesn’t seem to be more ‘Star Trek’ audio productions by Big Finish lately. Continue reading

Book/Audio review – ‘Fire with Fire’ (Star Trek: Prometheus)

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

I’ve recently checked out the first in a trilogy of ‘Star Trek’ novels/audiobooks called ‘Star Trek: Prometheus’. The first ‘Prometheus’ book/audio is called ‘Fire with Fire’ by Bernd Perplies and Christian Humberg, and the audiobook is read by Alec Newman. The ‘Prometheus’ audiobooks are the closest thing to have in terms of Big Finish audios of ‘Star Trek’. Continue reading

‘Star Wars’ Week – The First Thrawn Trilogy

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s Day 4 of ‘Star Wars’ week on ‘Bradley’s Basement’ in May 2022, and it’s time to revisit the original Thrawn trilogy of ‘Star Wars’ books by Timothy Zahn. I enjoyed checking out this trilogy of ‘Star Wars’ books when I read them from late 2020 to early 2021. Let’s hope they won’t be the last time I’ll be checking out some ‘Star Wars’ literature.

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s the second day of the ‘Star Wars’ week on ‘Bradley’s Basement’ in May 2022, and I’m sharing my reviews on the ‘Star Wars’ spin-offs I’ve checked out so far.

Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ with Tom Baker on Blu-ray #6

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

And we’ve come to the end of Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ on Blu-ray with Tom Baker. To finish off, we’re taking a look at the lost story called ‘Shada’, which was meant to be the season finale to Season 17, but was cancelled due to strike action happening in 1979. My review on the original ‘Shada’ is based on the 2021 ‘definitive version’ of the story in the Season 17 Blu-ray box set. I’ve combined both my reviews on the 1992 VHS version and the 2017 movie version of the ‘Shada’ story for this review. Continue reading

Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ with Tom Baker on Blu-ray #5

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

The Nimon be praised! 😀 Yes, it’s time for ‘The Horns of Nimon’, the fifth story featured in Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ on Blu-ray with Tom Baker. This ‘Doctor Who’ adventure is by Anthony Read, the previous script editor of the show before Douglas Adams came along. Tom Baker is back as the Fourth Doctor, along with Lalla Ward as Romana and K-9 (voiced by David Brierley). They’re joined by the late Graham Crowden as Soldeed as well as the minotaur-like Nimons. Continue reading

Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ with Tom Baker on Blu-ray #2

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

We continue checking out Season 17 of ‘Doctor Who’ on Blu-ray with Tom Baker by taking a look at the second story in the season called ‘City of Death’. This is my second favourite ‘Doctor Who’ story in the entire series (the first of course being ‘Black Orchid’). The story has Paris in 1979; Julian Glover as the villain; a cameo of John Cleese and Eleanor Bron; and an enjoyable comedy-drama plot by Douglas Adams, based on the ideas by David Fisher. Continue reading

Book/Audio Review – ‘The Roundheads’ (Doctor Who)

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

As we’re still beginning the New Year of 2022, let me share with you a ‘Doctor Who’ review I’ve done on the Second Doctor novel called ‘The Roundheads’ by Mark Gatiss. I purchased the 8-disc audiobook CD set of ‘The Roundheads’ read by Anneke Wills when I attended the ‘Bedford Who Charity Con’ back in October 2021. Continue reading
