The Black Archive 22: Hell Bent

Black_archive_hell_bent.jpg

‘These have been the best years of my life, and they are mine. Tomorrow is promised to no one, Doctor, but I insist upon my past.’

 

Hell Bent (2015) is a story that twists our expectations. Grand villains are reintroduced and then quickly discarded. The Doctor shifts from a heroic figure to an anti-hero. And a familiar scenario between the Doctor and a dying companion plays out with radically different results.

 

This is a story that explores and challenges some of the Doctor’s most paternalistic, controlling behaviours. The companion departs with an origin story equal to the Doctor’s. And with a Time Lord’s on-screen regeneration from a white man into a black woman, the path to Jodie Whittaker’s casting as the Doctor became even clearer.

Silver Archive 1c: Sapphire and Steel Assignments 5 and 6

silver_archive_3.jpg

“Time, when it’s been tampered with to this extent, tries to counteract things!”

 

A murder mystery in a stately home mocked up to look as it did 50 years ago. A deadly confrontation for Sapphire and Steel (and Silver) in a motorway services cafe. The only Sapphire & Steel story not written by Peter Hammond, an homage to the Golden Age detective novels of Agatha Christie, is followed by the series finale, a surreal tale which even now, almost forty years later, still divides viewers.

Silver Archive 1b: Sapphire and Steel Assignments 3 and 4

silver_archive_2.jpg

“One foot up and the other foot down, which is the way to London town?”

A family from the future are hunted by the animal they have inadvertently brought back in time. A man with no face uses photographs to trap the unwary. Sapphire & Steel takes its first step into straight science-fiction, as the agents confront a young couple from 1500 years in the future, and their Changeling baby, before coming up against perhaps the most striking and well-remembered character in the series, the faceless Shape and his nursery rhyme chanting ‘children’.

Cody Schell asks just who (or what) Sapphire and Steel really are, just how many invasions from the future there were, and whether there is another popular genre creator in the modern day who has created a show just as distinctive as Sapphire & Steel…

“Let’s waken the dead, shall we?”

 

A remote cottage, where Time threatens the lives of two children. The war dead return to haunt the living at an abandoned railway station. Sapphire & Steel burst on television screens in 1980 with two iconic slices of folk horror, setting a high standard for the fondly remembered but all too brief series which followed.

In analysing a series which raised far more questions than it answered, David and Lesley McIntee consider myth and folklore, liminal spaces and paranormal activities, investigate memes and fairy tales, and wonder just how much of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey can be mapped onto the two agents, Sapphire and Steel.

240: Hour of the Cybermen

hour_of_the_cybermen.jpg

Answering a call from UNIT, the Doctor arrives in London to find the streets deserted, apart from looters in possession of a valuable commodity - water.

 

Britain is suffering an extreme and bizarre drought. The cause is suspected to be extra-terrestrial.

 

The discovery of a signal being transmitted into space, and of a spacecraft whose crew are desiccated corpses, provides a possible answer. But the true enemy is an old foe of the Doctor’s.

 

The Cybermen have been patient, setting their plans in place over a number of years. As the final stage is implemented, in the darkest hour, the Doctor must identify who among his allies he can trust.

 

Written By: Andrew Smith

 

Cast: Colin Baker (The Doctor), David Banks (Cyber Leader), Mark Hardy (Cyber Lieutenant), Frog Stone (Riva), Blake Harrison (Daniel Hopkins), Wayne Forester (Atriss / Bill Parker / Captain Weaver), Russ Bain (Lewis Price / Kel). Other parts played by members of the cast.

Callan Volume 1

callan_1.jpg

Full-cast adaptations of Callan stories originally published in the Sunday Express.

 

Originally broadcast in 1967, Callan took the burgeoning world of spy drama, and brought a much darker tone to the genre. With James Bond’s career beginning in film in 1962, Michael Caine’s Harry Palmer beginning in 1965 (The Ipcress File) and hot on the heels of the surreal series The Prisoner in 1967, Callan took a darker approach to espionage. Having similar responsibilities to MI5, Callan used the most ruthless and lethal techniques to get the job done, each method meticulously filed by ‘The Section’ (the organisation behind operative Callan), colour coding each lethal tactic.

 

Four series of the original television series were produced between 1967 and 1972, plus a cinema film released in 1974 and a TV comeback in 1981. And now, Callan is set to return on audio at Big Finish.

 

Adapted from series creator James Mitchell’s Sunday Express Short Stories by his son Peter Mitchell, four new adventures will expand the themes explored in the television show.

 

David Callan works for The Section, a top-secret counter-espionage organisation. He’s a killer, a trained assassin, and the best at what he does.

 

But that doesn’t mean he has to like it.

 

With the aid of the burglar Lonely; fellow operative Meres; and Section secretary Liz, Callan fulfils the orders of departmental head Hunter and finds himself in very murky waters.

 

Murder, betrayal and model soldiers. It’s all in a day’s work for Callan.

 

1.1 File on a Deadly Deadshot by James Mitchell (adapted by Peter Mitchell)

With Lonely posing as his gentleman’s gentleman, the section’s top operative David Callan is sent to a country estate in Northumberland to infiltrate a rich men’s shooting party. One of his companions is an assassin but which one? High living and high stakes on the grouse moors as Callan attempts to work out which of the dead-shots is a man-hunter.

 

1.2 File on a Classy Club by James Mitchell (adapted by Peter Mitchell)

Callan finds the odds are stacked against him when he poses as a high roller at London’s top casino. His mission is to lose all his money but he almost loses his life when he stumbles into an East German spy cell. Perhaps a card sharp from Lonely’s past can help Callan turn the tables.

 

1.3 File on an Awesome Amateur by James Mitchell (adapted by Peter Mitchell)

Callan and Meres are despatched to a cultural festival in Venice to snatch a Russian poet from under the noses of the KGB. But the success of the mission depends upon the expertise of amateur sleuth and keen ornithologist Cynthia Widgery. Feathers fly on the Grand Canal...

 

1.4 File on a Harassed Hunter by James Mitchell (adapted by Peter Mitchell)

Callan is drawn into a dark secret when Hunter invites him to fly to Newcastle for a trip to the theatre. The plot thickens when an alcoholic actor and a decoy called Prenderghast lead Callan to one of the KGB’s most proficient killers. The setting for the denouement is far too close for comfort.

 

Cast

Ben Miles (Callan), Frank Skinner (Lonely), Nicholas Briggs (Hunter), David Rintoul (Baumer), Justin Avoth (Endicott), Glen McReady (Minns), Louis Tamone (Lorimer / Waiter), Tam Williams (Toby Meres), Mark Elstob (Karl / Judd / Willis), Robert Portal (Bulky Berkeley / Lubov), Annabelle Dowler (Amparo Soller / Barbara Jackson), Gyuri Sarossy (Marty Rivers), Beth Goddard (Cynthia Widgery / Auntie Gertie / Adrienn), Teddy Kempner (Evan Lang / Joe 'Plastic' MacNamara), Leighton Pugh (Petrov)

torchwood_goodbye_piccadilly.jpg

Jenny: The Doctor's Daughter

jenny.jpg

Jenny is brand new to the universe. Born a soldier, made for war, she has a Time Lord’s heritage. Luckily, that Time Lord is the Doctor.

 

She’s ready to save planets, fight monsters, and save the day, using nothing but her bravery, wit and instinct – and an awful lot of running.

 

1.1 Stolen Goods by Matt Fitton

Jenny is new to the universe and keen to explore – but in unfamiliar spaceships, accidents happen. She’s lucky to have someone on-hand to help. A slippery, fast-talking someone, called Garundel.

 

Soon, Jenny is mixed up in cons and explosions. But she also finds something strange, inexplicable, and as new to universe as she is. She’ll call him Noah.

 

1.2 Prisoner of the Ood by John Dorney

Moving into Leafield Crescent, Angie Glazebrook is surprised by an unexpected caller. But not half as surprised as Jenny, suddenly transported to a suburban close on twenty-first century Earth.

 

And that’s nothing to the surprise of the neighbours when alien visitors start appearing. Visitors with tentacled mouths, carrying death-dealing orbs. The Ood have come for their prisoner…

 

1.3 Neon Reign by Christian Brassington

The Dragon Lord rules Kamshassa with fear. Half the oppressed population live in an addicted stupor, while the other half are forced into service. Factories belch poisonous smoke, and Dragon Guards patrol the streets, condemning dissenters to the Eternal Fire.

 

When Jenny and Noah arrive, it’s only a matter of time before they start a revolution.

 

1.4 Zero Space by Adrian Poynton

Out in deep space, in the middle of – quite literally – nowhere, Jenny and Noah believe they’ve found a safe haven. And, very possibly, some answers. But the space station holds many secrets, and it won’t be long before Jenny’s past catches her up.

 

Bounty hunter COLT-5000 is on her trail and will stop at nothing to hunt down its quarry… even in Zero Space!

 

Cast: Georgia Tennant (Jenny), Sean Biggerstaff (Noah), Siân Phillips(COLT-5000),Stuart Milligan (Garundel), Sarah Woodward (Vesh Taralesh), Clare Corbett (Lukaku), Arabella Weir (Angie Glazebrook), Silas Carson (Ood Leader), Rosalyn Landor (Vanessa Elledge), Olivia Darnley (Emily Cole), John Dorney (John Macguire), Pik-Sen Lim (Old Woman), Arina II (Shoon-Wei), Sara Houghton (Alitta), Paul Courtenay Hyu (Po), Adèle Anderson (Dreyda), Anthony Calf (Cal).
