Showing, telling and The Awakening (1984)

In my head, this is how The Awakening starts: a fierce pitched battle between Cavaliers and Roundheads. Clashing swords, battle cries, whinnying horses, soldiers falling. It’s chaos, restoration style. 1,128 more words

Doctor Who

Big Finish Folly, Part 30 - One Man & His Coward

OK, I guess I’m being somewhat unfair here: the titular coward is none other than Vislor Turlough, and while his character was a charter member of the Self-Preservation Society, he is certainly not a coward. 530 more words
