DW: The War Master – Anti-Genesis Review

WM Anti-Genesis

Let’s try and catch up with the Big Finish audio releases from the past few months, shall we? Starting with December’s offering of the final War Master box set (… for now) titled Anti-Genesis: it’s your standard “altering history causes the timeline to go all crazy” story, but it has some great ideas and performances at its core. Let’s take a closer look!

The War Master: Rage of the Time Lords Review

WM Rage of the Time Lords

Rage of the Time Lords was actually released a few months back, but due to all the crazy nonsense in my life, I decided to save it for when I was better able to settle down and listen to it… and here we are!

The War Master: Only the Good – Beneath the Viscoid and The Good Master Review

War Master P1

Derek Jacobi is back as the Master in what is the first Doctor Who spin-off I’m covering for this blog, and a fine spin-off it is! Sir Derek Jacobi is one of those people who could read the phonebook and make it interesting, so it’s not hard to imagine these turning out as well as they have, though I’ll admit it starts off slow in this half of the “Only the Good” box… So let’s take a more detailed look, shall we?
