@TinDogPodcast reviews the frankly brilliant STAR COPS - MOTHER EARTH 2 from @BigFinish

 

This title was released in November 2018. It will be exclusively available to buy from the BF website until December 31st 2018, and on general sale after this date.

It’s the near future, and mankind has expanded its presence in space. Maintaining law and order among this network of space stations, satellites and moon outposts is the responsibility of the International Space Police Force, known colloquially as the Star Cops. Their leader is Commander Nathan Spring.

It’s been months since the last attack by Mother Earth, the activist group opposed to mankind’s expansion into space. It’s believed that the group is finished. But instead, Mother Earth is about to renew its campaign. This time with even more ferocity and violence.

2.1: Dead and Buried by Guy Adams

At Lunar Interments, the moon’s graveyard for the wealthy, the caretaker has noticed something odd in the burial records. Odd enough for him to call in the Star Cops.

Devis isn’t happy at being assigned to what he thinks is a mundane case. Not when Nathan and Kenzy are off to investigate a burglary at the home of billionaire businessman Ben Alexander. A break-in where the burglar has finished up dead.

But in the lunar resting place of the dead, Devis will find himself racing against the clock to save his life and hundreds of others.

2.2: The Killing Jar by John Dorney

The Charlie Chaplin is a second-hand space station operated as a space-tourism hub by entrepreneur Martin Thane. When Nathan receives reports that serious accidents and even a death have been caused by Thane flouting safety laws, he decides to investigate.

An accident investigation soon becomes a murder enquiry. And as the Star Cops hunt for the killer, the station becomes a death trap threatening everyone on board.

2.3: Moonshine by Roland Moore

A friend of Kenzy’s on the space station Coral Sea has been dismissed for possession of alcohol and sent back to Earth. She believes his claim that he was framed, and when she learns of his subsequent suicide she and Devis travel to Australia to investigate. A difficult enquiry is not helped when Kenzy’s former fiancé, a Police Superintendent, appears on the scene.

On Moonbase, Nathan is expecting an official visit from a powerful dignitary. So it’s not a good time for there to be a fatal incident that may be the work of Mother Earth...

2.4: Hostage by Andrew Smith

The Star Cops are under intense pressure in the face of continuing Mother Earth attacks. The very existence of the International Space Police Force is in jeopardy.

Kenzy and Priya are responding to a murderous Mother Earth explosion at a moon outpost when one of the workers, Mary Ward, takes a hostage and makes demands, accusing others of trying to kill her. She appears to have snapped under pressure.

As the crisis develops, dangerous secrets are revealed. Secrets that some will be prepared to kill for. And die for.

 

Please note: Star Cops features some mild swearing and content which may not be suitable for younger listeners.

@TinDogPodcast reviews the brilliant #UNIT 7 - (#DoctorWho Spin off) REVISITATIONS from @BigFinish

 

This title was released in November 2018. It will be exclusively available to buy from the BF website until January 31st 2019, and on general sale after this date.  
 
Over the years, UNIT has faced hundreds of extra-terrestrial threats. The Black Archive holds relics of many such encounters, and UNIT’s files are filled with reports of strange and dangerous aliens.
 
And sometimes, they come back.
 

7.1 and 7.2 Hosts of the Wirrn by Chris Chapman

 
After the world’s strangest interview, UNIT’s latest recruit, Shana Siddiqui, hits the ground running to help Osgood with her latest assignment.
 
The Master left UNIT a parting gift – something alien and deadly. The Wirrn have come to Earth, and now they are free…
 
 
7.3 Breach of Trust by David K Barnes
 
An alien vessel arrives on Earth, its occupants seeking refuge, and Osgood takes them in.
 
But there is reason to mistrust this cry for help. The files show that UNIT has faced the Kalvyri before. What else they reveal will set Kate at odds with her most trusted friends.
 
 
7.4 Open the Box by Roy Gill
 
In the years since the Stangmoor Prison incident, Captain Chin Lee found a new calling. She now heads up an international organisation, dedicated to meditation and ‘mental fortitude’ training. 
 
But there is a menace deep inside the Pandora Institute. And Kate, Osgood and Josh must face their darkest fears…

@TinDogPodcast reviews #Survivors S8 From @BigFinish

 

This title was released in December 2018. It will be exclusively available to buy from the BF website until January 31st 2019, and on general sale after this date.

Four new battles for survival, from the world of Terry Nation's cult-classic series.

The world has ended. The ‘Death’ pandemic crossed continents, sparing only a fraction of the global population.

The survivors are now trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild society - to create a new future.

But with no cities, no laws, no technology, everyone must start over. And the worst of human nature has survived along with the best...

8.1 Bandit Train by Christopher Hatherall 

Society is slowly rebuilding. Abby and Jenny are transporting supplies between  settlements. Craig is learning how to run the steam engines on lines cleared by Greg Preston.

But there are still those who just want to take. And their train is about to come under attack…

8.2 Robert by Jane Slavin 

Once, Robert Malcolm had a complicated life. His wife in an institution, his girlfriend running a struggling business, he was out of the army and without a place in the world.

When the Death came, it meant many things to many people. For Robert, it meant freedom.

8.3 The Lost Boys by Lisa McMullin

Peter Grant is alive. He is with Robert Malcolm’s army of boy soldiers, learning to survive. Building a better future.

But medic Ruth has her suspicions when she visits the camp. And Craig is about to find out what it takes to become a recruit.

8.4 Village of Dust by Roland Moore

Abby, still desperate for the reunion she’s been seeking for years, now knows that Peter is part of an army.

Meanwhile, Jenny realises that someone is drawing plans against her budding Federation. A war is coming, and mother and son are on different sides.

NOTE: Survivors contains adult material and is not suitable for younger listeners.
