2036 Origin Unknown or Origin Unknown is an upcoming sci-fi thriller. From director and VFX Master Hasraf Dulull, Origin Unknown takes place in the near future, close to Mars. Here, a remarkable object promises to unlock a universal mystery. This title stars sci-fi veteran Katie Sackhoff, along with Ray Fearon, Steven Cree and Julie Cox. A teaser trailer, for the film, was released in 2016. Now, the film is slated for its first home entertainment showing, via Mongrel Media. The short synopsis and teaser reveal very little.

DVD Review: Shadow of the Sword

Shadow Of The Sword

Stars: Steven Berkoff, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Julie Cox, Patrick Godfrey, Eddie Marsan | Written by Steve Attridge, Susanne Freund | Directed by Simon Aeby

When writing a story about history it seems that the easy thing to do is look at religion. It’s a subject that has created such division in society it just screams out plenty of themes for a writer to use and manipulate into an entertaining story. Shadow of the Sword is a perfect example of this.

It takes a time in history when the church was all powerful in Europe and examines how corruption and greed can destroy not only the churches credibility but also the lives and friendships of the people it believes it controls.

Set in the times of the inquisitions, Shadow of the Sword looks at the friendship of two orphan boys Martin and Georg. One is chosen by the church

Doctor Who Audio Review Episode 154 – “The Witch from the Well”

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

In keeping with Big Finish’s addition of Mary Shelly (Julie Cox) to the 8th Doctor’s (Paul McGann) Tardis, we have something of a horror story, involving witches, religious zealotry and murder. So, basically a Tuesday for the Tardis crew.

Our story begins with Mary saving the lives of two teenage twins from a strange, monstrous creature living inside a recently unsealed well. The twins, Finicia (Alix Wilton Regan) and Lucien (Kevin Trainor) wind up inside the Tardis, and then the Tardis winds up in 17th century England. They’re still all in the same village, but a different time, and yet a place where the twins are recognized.

It turns out they’ve arrived during a witch scare, and a local woman, Agnes (Serena Evans), is about to be burned for witchcraft. She’s surprisingly sanguine about her upcoming fate, but before the Doctor

Doctor Who Audio Review: The Silver Turk

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Back in 2005, the new series of Doctor Who, aired a fairly good, notable episode called “Dalek”. It focused on a single dalek, retrieved by an egotistical man who wants to use it to his own ends, who is isolated from the rest of his “species”, believes himself to be the only survivor of his race, and is pitied by the Doctor’s fairly new, female companion.

“The Silver Turk,” one of the most recent audios by Big Finish, is a fairly good episode. It focuses on a single cyberman, retrieved by an egotistical man who wants to use it to his own ends, who is isolated from the rest of his “species”, believes himself to be the only survivor of his race that’s currently on Earth, and is pitied by the Doctor’s new female companion.

So, yeah. It’s got that vibe going on.

Doctor Who Audio Review: “The Company of Friends – Mary’s Story”

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Welcome to the first of my reviews of Big Finish’s audio plays! For those of you who don’t know, these are (usually), full cast audio adventures based on various properties. They have ones for Dark Shadows, Highlander, Stargate, Sherlock Holmes, and, relevant to this review, Doctor Who.

Their Doctor Who line features past Doctors and their companions. So far we’ve had the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Doctors and beginning next year, we get adventures with the 4th Doctor, along with, at various points, Leela, Romana and K-9. Fun times!

This particular story is a lead-in to several current and upcoming Big Finish audios featuring the 8th Doctor (Paul McGann), and his new companion, a young woman by the name of Mary Shelly (Julie Cox).

Our story begins in a Swiss chalet in 1816, where several people, including Lord Byron (Robert Forknall), Percy Shelly (Anthony Glennon), and Mary Shelly,

Oxford Murders, The | Review

Director: Álex de la Iglesia Writer: Jorge Guerricaechevarria (screenplay), Álex de la Iglesia (screenplay), Guillermo Martínez (novel) Starring: Elijah Wood, John Hurt, Leonor Watling To quote the Austrian-British philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein, from his treatise Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1921) (which was penned -- at least according to The Oxford Murders -- smack in the middle of a Wwi battlefield): “There is no such truth outside of mathematics.” The Oxford Murders goes one step beyond the question of whether or not we can handle the truth; it posits the question: “Can we know the truth?” Enter Martin (Elijah Wood), an oversees student donning a black leather jacket. Martin shows up in Julia Eagleton’s (Anna Massey) Oxford, England home -- a home that is decorated with noteworthy mathematical artifacts such as a replica of an Enigma machine and a photograph of Alan Turing. Julia’s husband, Harry Eagleton, was the [fictional] developer of the
