‘Doctor Who: 8×03 – Robot of Sherwood’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When writing reviews I like to go on my initial thoughts and work from there.  Lately there has been a lot of criticism about the direction the show is going and I’ll admit that there are issues that fans (including me) have a right to complain about.  What this can’t get in the way of […]

As a designer I often have to use tablets in my creative pursuits and I’ve experienced all manner of different makes and models – in fact I use one on a semi-regular basis for my day job. So when I was offered the opportunity to review Wacom’s new Bamboo Pad I jumped at the chance, […]

‘Supernatural – The Complete Ninth Season’ Blu-ray Review

by Nathan Smith

I personally loved season nine of Supernatural. I felt like it was a return to form for a show that had some dips and dives in its series run. It isn’t easy for anyone to keep someone’s attention over 173 episodes, but the writers, actors, and all crew involved have managed to keep audiences entertained […]

‘The Early Works of Wakefield Poole’ DVD Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

My only connection with Wakefield Poole prior to watching Boys in the Sand was Calvin Culver (also known as Casey Donovan) who appeared in Radley Metzger’s film, Score.
