Jonathan Morris takes charge in both the main range and Companion Chronicles this month, so we spoke to him about writing two very different tales - 1963: The Space Race and Ghost in the Machine.


Dorian heads for Edinburgh in 1920 and finds himself in the midst of a particularly unsettling Halloween in this month's special story, The Prime of Deacon Brodie. We spoke to writer Roy Gill about where he gets his dark ideas from.


It's the conclusion of the Gallifrey series this month in Gallifrey VI, and the producers and writers spill some of the beans on what's in store for Romana, Leela, Narvin and the inhabitants of the Doctor's homeworld...


The inside story of Beyond the Grave, and how the tapes of this lost TV show fell into the lap of Big Finish. Also, a chat with the writer of this, the last of the current run of Dark Shadows, Aaron Lamont...


The latest Lost Story, The Queen of Time, finds Frazer Hines once more playing the Doctor and Jamie (alongside Wendy Padbury), so we revisit one of his earlier successes in the dual roles: The Glorious Revolution.


Another smattering of letters, a look ahead to next year in Blake's 7 and there's a list of upcoming releases. If you'd like to mail in with a question or comment, please drop us a note on and mark your e-mail 'Feedback'.
