Den of Geek has Doctor Who's one-off monsters: a celebration. Andrew looks back over the history of Doctor Who's one-off monsters to select his top single-appearance villains...

Podcasts and VBlogs...
Beware most podcasts are of an adult nature and are not suitable for children.

Big Finish has released Podcast - March 001: February Catch-Up and Blake's 7 at BFD2. Gathered once more in the office, executive producer Nick Briggs, line producer David Richardson and employee of the year Paul Spragg take a look at some February titles that were overlooked in the rush of last month, namely The Companion Chronicles: The Selachian Gambit, Graceless 2 and Bernice Summerfield: Road Trip and The Weather on Versimmon. But there's also time for some dress-up, listener feedback, an anecdote about David Tennant's wedding reception and some flawless comic timing from Mr Richardson....

Review's Roundup...

Time and The—! has The Sensorites: Strangers in Space. The TARDIS has materialized, but Ian and Barbara immediately notice the look of concern on the Doctor’s face as he checks and rechecks the controls: they have arrived somewhere, but the instruments indicate they’re still in motion.  Perhaps they’ve landed on top of something, Ian suggests, or, as Barbara speculates, inside something…

Infinite Hollywood has 11 Doctors Character Building Set Review. "Today I'm taking a look at the 11 Doctors mini figure set from Character Options. Last year CO introduced the new Character Building mini figures, which are sort of like Doctor Who Legos. Shortly after, they released this set featuring all 11 Doctors. It's a time traveler's smallest, best friend...."

Classical Gallifrey has Serial 41: The Web of Fear. It's not hard to see why "The Web of Fear" would be legendary. I mean, in terms of check lists, it is the televisual return of the Yeti, thereby elevating them above other such popular monsters like Zygons, Wirrn, Krynoids, and Macra by proving their viability as recurring monsters and meaning that in eventual Doctor Who visual companions The Yeti can get, say, a page to themselves whereas other monsters like the Zygons will still get a page but that page is much more padded and stretched because there's possibly less to say about them....

Reverse The Polarity Films has Audio Review 16: Frostfire, written by Marc Platt (2007). In the ancient city of Carthage in 1164 BC, Lady Cressidarecalls a tale from her past. A past where she called herself Vicki andtravelled in time with the Doctor and Steven...

TARDIS Eruditorum has A Pathetic Bunch of Tin Soldiers (Earthshock). For the most part, Earthshock is an astonishingly straightforward story. Cybermen attack Earth. Twice. The pleasures it offers are straightforward pleasures. There are Cybermen. There are gun battles. Things explode. It is a story that operates under the complete and unfaltering confidence that having action sequences involving classic Doctor Who monsters is inherently worthwhile television....

TEGAN has Dr. Who (The Early Years) - Part 63 "The Twin Dilemma". While the Doctor is still recovering from his regeneration, this episode begins with a set of highly intelligent twins working on computations. They are not surprised to discover their mother has gone out again, but are rather disappointed when their father goes out. Once they are left alone, a strange visitor stops by claiming to look for their father....
