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.

Movie Review – ‘The Great Muppet Caper’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

After enjoying the third episode of ‘Muppets Now’ last Friday, my parents and I saw ‘The Great Muppet Caper’ on Disney+. I’ve never seen this movie before despite having watched a few Muppet movies in the past like ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’, ‘Muppet Treasure Island’, ‘Muppets From Space’, the 2011 ‘Muppets’ film and ‘Muppets Most Wanted’. I’ve not even reviewed those films yet! Continue reading
