CD Review – ‘Zagreus’ (Doctor Who)

Hello everyone! 🙂

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

At last! After a long time since I reviewed ‘Neverland’ in 2017, I’ve reviewed ‘Zagreus’, the 40th anniversary special of ‘Doctor Who’. This stars Paul McGann and India Fisher with Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Lalla Ward, Louise Jameson, Nicholas Courtney and Don Warrington. It also features Anneke Wills, Elisabeth Sladen, Mark Strickson, Sarah Sutton, Nicola Bryant, Caroline Morris, Maggie Stables, Bonnie Langford, Sophie Aldred, Lisa Bowerman, John Leeson and more. Did I find ‘Zagreus’ to be a worthy anniversary special to celebrate 40 years of ‘Doctor Who’? Well, um… Continue reading

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

And now we’ve come to the fourth and final story of Season 26 of ‘Doctor Who’ on Blu-ray! This is one of my favourite stories with Sylvester McCoy’s Doctor and Sophie Aldred’s Ace.
