20th-Jul-2011 08:46 am - Passing over of modship
For various reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture I have made the decision to give up this comm. It was not an easy decision, but one that I probably should've made months ago to be honest. The lovely tardiscrash has offered to take over and I have happily accepted.

I look forward to seeing what they do with the place.
24th-Apr-2011 02:45 pm - Is this community still alive??
General Doctor Who
Hi, there--I was wondering if there are people still interested in this community, like I am.
Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house not a creature was stirring...

But something must be stirring. Something hidden in the shadows. Something which kills the servants of an old Edwardian mansion in the most brutal and macabre manner possible. Exactly on the chiming of the hour, every hour, as the grandfather clock ticks on towards midnight.

Trapped and afraid, the Doctor and Charley are forced to play detective to murders with no motive, where even the victims don't stay dead. Time is running out.

And time itself might well be the killer...

29th-Nov-2010 11:15 pm - Big Finish Rec Week
Due to the fact that my work schedule this week is not kind I am throwing open the doors for a rec week.

What does that mean? It means now is the time to tell everyone why you love this thing Big Finish has done/is doing. Write a post campaigning for the next Friday series. Whatever.

Some ideas:

Rec your favorite audio
Rec your favorite range (show us some 2000 A.D. love, share why the new Robin Hood and Highlander ranges are awesome)
Rec a thematic list
Rec a reoccuring actor that you love
Rec a member of the Big Finish staff you think needs more love
Rec Vortex magazine, the podcast, or the Big Finish message boards
Rec the collection of Big Finish related communities on LJ
Got an old rec post that didn't have a lot of love? Share it.

Basically, if you can relate it back to Big Finish is some way feel free to rec it.

Hopefully my work schedule will be less sucky next week.
27th-Nov-2010 04:29 am - All Fall Down Discussion Post!

London, a late summer morning.

The present. Sapphire and Steel investigate an area of the city that is steeped in a rich and bloody history. Artifacts are uncovered that form a dangerous link with the past.

Two aggressive alien races. A war that has raged for centuries. A planet that orbits through no mans land.

The Rutan/Sontaran conflict has started to endanger the Terran trade routes, but when the Captain of the battle cruiser Rites of Passage finds an energy signature of artificial origin on the primitive planet of Bellotron he is duty bound to call in the assistance of a qualified academic.

Confronted by savage predators, fiendish traps and the unexpected involvement of an opportunist thief, an unwilling Benny finds herself caught up in a conflict where neither side plays by the rules ­and no-one is quite what they seem...

22nd-Nov-2010 11:18 pm - Invaders From Mars Discussion Post!
Hallowe'en 1938.

A year after a mysterious meteorite lit up the skies of New York state, Martian invaders laid waste to the nation. At least, according to soon-to-be infamous Orson Welles they did. But what if some of the panicked listeners to the legendary War of the Worlds broadcast weren't just imagining things?

Attempting to deliver Charley to her rendezvous in Singapore 1930, the Doctor overshoots a little, arriving in Manhattan just in time to find a dead private detective. Indulging his gumshoe fantasies, the Doctor is soon embroiled in the hunt for a missing Russian scientist whilst Charley finds herself at the mercy of a very dubious Fifth Columnist.

With some genuinely out of this world 'merchandise' at stake, the TARDIS crew are forced into an alliance with a sultry dame called Glory Bee, Orson Welles himself and a mobster with half a nose known as 'The Phantom'.

And slowly but surely, something is drawing plans against them. Just not very good ones...

Suburbia, 2004. And it looks like rain.

Sapphire and Steel are drawn to a house apparently much like any other on the street, except that this one, and the family living in it, harbour a secret that threatens to destroy them all.

18th-Nov-2010 05:50 pm - The Mirror Effect Discussion Post!
Do you believe in the mirror or do you believe in yourself?

Under the ice on a cold world lie the derelict remains of the lost Grid 4 Mining Station. Inside the station is a mirror, an ancient alien artefact, its existence known to few. Inside the mirror is one Professor Bernice Summerfield, and she can't get out. Trapped and alone in a place she cannot trust, with her friends distorted and turned against her, she is haunted by fears and reflections.

And inside Bernice Summerfield is a little baby creature that wants her to be mother.

15th-Nov-2010 04:18 pm - The One Doctor Discussion Post!
When the evil Skelloids launch an attack upon the seventeen worlds of the Generios system, its peace-loving inhabitants face total destruction.

So it's fortunate that the famous traveller in time and space known only as the Doctor is in the area, and doubly lucky that, with the help of his pretty young assistant, Sally-Anne, he manages to defeat the deadly creatures and save the day.

But now it looks as though the Doctor¹s luck has run out.

Who is the mysterious, curly-haired stranger who insists on causing trouble? What role does the feisty redhead Melanie play in his scheme? And what have they to do with the sinister alien cylinder approaching Generios?

One thing is certain: for the Doctor and Sally-Anne, there¹s deadly danger ahead ...
