Scherzo

Returning to Big Finish after a bit of a gap has been a mixed bag and I’m desperately torn on my feelings about Scherzo.  Having left our universe at the end of Zagreus, Charley and the Doctor are in a … Continue reading

Swan Song

For those who have been following my ramblings about Jago and Litefoot, a series that has a distinct feel of the Great Detective, I feel the urge to go full on Sherlock.  “…if it should ever strike you that I … Continue reading

The Man at the End of the Garden

“Who is the girl at the top of the stairs?”  Sometimes a line or a moment in an audio story can really send shivers down your spine.  I found that in a few instances here, but this was possibly the … Continue reading

Dead Men’s Tales

The first thing that caught my attention with the beginning of season 3 of Jago and Litefoot was that the title of this first adventure was very … seafaring.  Now I should point out that as a fan of Cthulhu … Continue reading

The Ruthven Inheritance

There have been a lot of Sherlock Holmes references since this series started but color me amazed that it escaped my attention before, Litefoot has a housekeeper named Mrs. Hudson!  Ormand Sacker, the original name for Dr. Watson, is back too, … Continue reading

The Theatre of Dreams

Jago and Litefoot!  Or is it Litefoot and Jago?  Whichever it is, they both deserve top billing anyway, so I’ll accept either, but they are back in their third adventure for season 2 and short of the last few minutes … Continue reading

The Necropolis Express

As a gentle note to our readers, these reviews will have some spoilers.  I try to reduce them as much as possible but the very premise of this one is based on the results of the previous.  If you want … Continue reading

The Similarity Engine

We come at last to the final part of Jago and Litefoot, season 1.  The writers and creators of the series clearly loved the characters and the actors get back in their roles like the professionals that they are.  I’d … Continue reading

The Spirit Trap

What really caught my eye… uh… ear about this series is how much it is indebted to Sherlock Holmes.  We saw how many references were thrown out there throughout the second installment, but by now we’re seeing another element: Moriarty.  … Continue reading

The Bellova Devil

I’ve been talking with some friends about “buddy shows” and I can think of no better than Jago and Litefoot.  The two of them are buddies, but they are so mismatched, you have to laugh.  While I find Litefoot the … Continue reading

Zagreus

I have been working my way through the first 50 Big Finish releases debating if I wanted to go immediately onward or if I should pause here and try some other Big Finish products.  I struggle because this episode is … Continue reading

Master

Some time back, Big Finish released a calendar of original art and I thought it was marvelous.  I wish they still did that.  Most Doctor Who calendars are just images from the series and putting them on the wall feels … Continue reading

Davros

Davros is the second story in a line-up of enemy titles.  Unlike most of the titles leading up to this point, I remembered these three-in-a-row; not so much what happened in them, but what episodes followed what, so I knew Davros … Continue reading
