For the first time since 1992’s Batman Returns, composer Danny Elfman returns to score a DC universe film, with his music for Justice League.

THE EIGHTH DOCTOR – THE TIME WAR SERIES 01

This is arguably one of the most anticipated series from Big Finish in a long while since this has given what fans have always wanted since 2005: the Eighth Doctor involved in the Time War. Granted, we saw a snippet of that in 2013’s 50th Anniversary prequel ‘Night of the Doctor’, yet Moffat elected not … Continued

JOHN CARPENTER – ANTHOLOGY (MOVIE THEMES 1974-1998)

If one’s ever needed an introduction to the music of John Carpenter, the Horror Master’s latest release on Sacred Bones Records is as fine a collection as exists.

THE ADVENTURES OF BAYOU BILLY (1988)

Leave it to Brooklyn’s Ship to Shore Phonograph Co. to find the a way to release a 7-inch of the most insanely catchy and intensely-paced chiptune music they could find. The Adventures of Bayou Billy might not be the most well-known of the titles released on the Famicom and NES during the late ‘80s, but … Continued

JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS (2001)

When Josie & the Pussycats was originally released in 2001, it came just a year after the end of the Sabrina the Teenage Witch series on the American ABC network. One would’ve thought that another modern update of an Archie Comics title would’ve been hot on its heels, but the poor box office performance of … Continued

THE SILURIAN CANDIDATE

At its core, Doctor Who is a show about how intellect and romance triumph over brute force and cynicism. The Seventh Doctor, however, is perhaps both the most intellectual and cynical of the lot, a heady mix of charming genius, clown and Machiavellian mastermind. Much of the clown aspect of 7 was seen when he … Continued

The audio adventures of the Second Doctor, alongside classic companions Jamie, Polly and Ben, continue in this latest release from Big Finish. The Outliers brings the TARDIS travellers to an underground town on a far away planet, where a corporation is mining for some sort of mineral (bet there’s no sinister twist there…). They soon … Continued
