Hornets’ Nest Chapter 3 – The Circus of Doom:
The Circus of Doom is the third chapter in the Hornets' Nest audio story with the Fourth Doctor and Captain Yates.
In his continuing investigation about the Hornets the Doctor goes to 1832 where he sees the titular circus.
Among the guest stars is Michael Maloney who plays very well as Dr Adam Farrow whose sister has come under the influence of the circus.
The ringmaster Antonio is played by Stephen Thorne. Thorne had appeared as various characters in the TV series most notably as Omega in The Three Doctors. Thorne had appeared with Tom Baker before in one TV episode that of the concluding episode of The Hand of Fear in which Thorne played Kastrian Eldrad.
Thorne plays Antonio very well and his style of characterisation is no different to his previous Doctor Who characters.
Intriguing part of The Circus of Doom was when the Doctor comes to the realisation that he may have caused the whole Hornets situation in the first place as the mystery about them continues.

In the eighth episode of the first season of the children's magazine programme Totally Doctor Who originally shown on June 1 2006 it had a brief history of the Doctors. Clips from all the Doctors up to that point was shown except for Eighth Doctor Paul McGann from his solo TV effort in the 1996 TV movie.

I am guessing that a clip from the TV movie could not be shown due to copyright issues with Fox and Universal.

Instead of a clip co-presenter Liz Barker gives a brief mention of Paul McGann and the TV movie in between clips of Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy and Ninth Doctor Chris Eccleston.

Leviathan:
Leviathan is the third release of Big Finish’s Lost Stories audio range and featured the Sixth Doctor and Peri and released in January 2010.
Leviathan was adapted by Paul Finch based on the script written by his late father Brian. As I found out on the interviews on this release Leviathan was written as a story for season 22 but ultimately was not produced for the TV series.
The Doctor and Peri arrives in a medieval village where they find the customs of the village to be very strange and incorporated in this story is Herne the Hunter.
The first episode maintains well the suspense about the village leading to an impressive cliffhanger.
The concluding episode however failed to excite me.
Interesting comments from the aforementioned interviews includes Paul Finch explaining the background of the Leviathan script and that his late father Brian was very disappointed that it was not produced for the TV series but would take comfort that it has finally been made, albeit on audio.

Dial D For Dalek:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT2mmqBnkXQ

Very amateur fan made animation in a little adventure featuring the Fourth Doctor and the Daleks.
There is no voice cast. Instead the dialogue is conveyed through on-screen hand written text not all of which is clear on-screen.
Not the greatest adventure of all time but it is harmless viewing.

From DoctorWhoNews.com:
Mervyn Haisman has passed away.

Haisman along with writing partner Henry Lincoln had written three Doctor Who stories during the Patrick Troughton era The Abominable Snowmen, The Web of Fear & The Dominators. Each of these stories made Doctor Who history in their own way. The Abominable Snowmen introduced the Yeti. The Yeti returned in The Web of Fear which also introduced Colonel (later Brigadier) Lethbridge Stewart. The Dominators was the only televised appearance of both the title aliens and the Quarks.
However due to artistic disagreements Haisman and Lincoln is credited for The Dominators under the pseudonym Norman Ashby.

Haisman and Lincoln’s contributions to the Doctor Who universe has been remembered as recent as 2008 when they got credit for creating the Brigadier for the final story of season 2 of The Sarah Jane Adventures, Enemy of the Bane.

Haisman died on October 29 2010.
