Review: Doctor Who – “Doom Coalition III” 

Review: Doctor Who – “Doom Coalition III” 

“I tried to be a good man……” This month sees the release of the third iteration of the Eighth Doctor’s current run of stories, ‘Doom Coalition’, produced by Big Finish. If you’ll remember, a few months ago I did a review of both Series I and II in one blog entry. While not all stories were perfect, I did very much enjoy both of them with the main highlights being “The Eleven” from Series I and “Scenes From Her Life” from Series II…

Adaptation Comparison : “Much Ado About Nothing” 

Adaptation Comparison : “Much Ado About Nothing” 

“Much Ado About Nothing” is one of my all time favorite Shakespearean plays, second only to “The Tempest” in fact. It may not be quite as visual, action-packed, or engaging as some of Shakespeare’s other works but it has a strong combination of all the elements that makes Shakespeare stories so unforgettable. It has a standard rom-com plot with a bit of strong drama and meditations on nihilism, shame, and honor that keeps your engagement. It has memorable characters across the…
