CD Review – ‘The Legacy of Time’ (Doctor Who)

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

I’ve done it! At last! I’ve reviewed ‘The Legacy of Time’, the epic six-linked-episode story to celebrate 20 years of ‘Doctor Who’ @ Big Finish. This was a challenge to review, but I’m happy I reviewed all six episodes of this epic adventure. It stars Paul McGann, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and many more from the worlds of ‘Doctor Who’. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Husbands of River Song’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This was once the first ‘Doctor Who’ episode that I reviewed on my blog from watching it on the TV back in 2015. It’s time for the second Christmas Special with Peter Capaldi’s Doctor and he’s joined by Alex Kingston as River Song for the occasion. This episode also features the debut of Matt Lucas as Nardole. Continue reading

The 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’ has arrived and it’s the season finale to Series 7.

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

It’s the last episode of the first half of Series 7 and it’s also the last to feature Karen Gillan as Amy and Arthur Darvill as Rory in ‘Doctor Who’. This episode is called ‘The Angels Take Manhattan’ and it features the return of the Weeping Angels and Alex Kingston as River Song. Will this be an emotional episode? Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Wedding of River Song’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is the season finale of Series 6 in ‘Doctor Who’. It’s a story that should’ve been a two-parter with everything crammed in at the end. It features the return of River Song as well as the Silence. Can the Doctor stop time collapsing with the world now seemingly jumbled up with many time zones? Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Closing Time’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

Matt Smith’s Doctor reunites with James Corden as Craig in this ‘Doctor Who’ episode called ‘Closing Time’ by Gareth Roberts. In this episode, Craig is now a father and his baby is called Alfie (or ‘Stormageddon’). The episode also features the return of the Cybermen as well as a scary Cybermat. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is the mid-season opener in Series 6 of ‘Doctor Who’. In this episode, the Doctor, Amy and Rory get to meet River Song…before she became River Song. Sounds weird, I know. And despite this episode being called ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’, it barely features him. I found this disappointing when I saw the episode. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘A Good Man Goes To War’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

We’ve come now to the end of the first half of Series 6. There was a break in-between Part 1 and Part 2 of Series 6. ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ is the mid-season finale and it features the true identity of River Song. Dare I say it, I wasn’t particularly happy with how River Song was revealed in the episode. Continue reading

‘Doctor Who’ Marathon – ‘The Impossible Astronaut’/’Day of the Moon’

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

This is where it begins to go downhill for me in the new series of ‘Doctor Who’. This is the first story of Series 6, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor. It is a two-part story; features the Doctor with Amy, Rory and River Song and it also features the Silence who are monsters that edit themselves out of your memory.

Continue reading
