TDP 558: Big Finish Main Range 208 - Waters of Amsterdam

Reunited with the Doctor and Nyssa, Tegan joins them on a trip to Amsterdam's Rijkmuseum to see a new exhibition of the work of Rembrandt van Rijn, featuring his drawings of “Vessels of the Stars”. The Doctor is astonished to discover that they are designs for spaceships that would actually work, and decides to pop back to the Dutch Golden Age for a quiet word with Rembrandt – but the world-weary artist is no mood to help.

Meanwhile, strange forces are swirling in the canals, creatures from ancient myth, the watery, goblin-like Nix. What is their connection to the mysterious Countess Mach-Teldak – and to the events of Tegan’s life during her year away from the Doctor?

James Goss (producer)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
 

James Goss (born 1974) is an English writer and producer, known both for his work in cult TV spin-off media, including tie-in novels and audio stories for Doctor Who and Torchwood, and for his fictional works beyond ready made universes.

 

 

Doctor Who[edit]

Online content[edit]

In 2000, Goss was made a BBC senior content producer and put in charge of the BBC's official Doctor Who website. Originally the site was part of the BBC's Cult TV website. Goss slowly expanded the content to include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Farscape, The Simpsons, 24 and Doctor Who. He was subsequently voted Number 19 in TV Cream's 2004 poll of Top 50 Media Movers and Shakers.[1]

With the return of Doctor Who in 2005, the Cult site was slowly wound down in order to concentrate solely on the show. Goss moved to BBC Wales to oversee the production of the new show's web site, expanding the contents to include cast and crew interviews, games and spin-off sites based on the broadcast episodes. His aim was to construct a whole world beyond the show that viewers could get further involved in, notably employing graphic designer Lee Binding for front pages and site design, and writer Joseph Lidster for the spin-off sites' fictional content. Sequence, a Cardiff-based design agency, were also responsible for all of the 2006 Doctor Who series games, experiences and many of the associated websites. Goss also produced the video clip "krill-loop" for a tie-in website.

Television, radio and DVD[edit]

Having produced previous Doctor Who web only animations (such as Scream of the Shalka)[2] and Shada,[3] in 2005 Goss produced the animations of two missing episodes of the The Invasion. The animation, developed by Cosgrove Hall, was originally intended as web-only content[4] but was later added to the DVD release and went on to be voted best DVD special feature in the 2006 Doctor Who Magazine awards.

In 2006, Goss developed and produced The Infinite Quest, a Doctor Who animation shown on BBC One and CBBC in 2007. He was also producer of the special features for the DVD release. He has since produced DVD extra features for further 2 Entertain Doctor Who releases, including The Chase, The Keys of Marinus, The Masque of Mandragora, and The Trial Of A Time Lord.

In 2006, he appeared in an episode of Doctor Who Confidential.[5]

In 2013 Scream of the Shalka was released on DVD with extras which include James Goss presenting a documentary on how the series came to be made and appearing in a documentary about the BBC cult website. He also produced a series of 5 (short) documentaries called Doctor Forever which appeared across Doctor Who DVD Special Edition releases in 2013. He was also involved in producing a series of documentaries for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who which in 2013 were first shown on BBC America and subsequently on Watch in the UK.

Books[edit]

In 2007, he contributed to the Doctor Who short-story collection Short Trips: Snapshots. His first book, Almost Perfect, a tie-in to the Doctor Who spin-off series Torchwood, was released in October 2008 and was followed by two more Torchwoodnovels and Bad Blood, a novel based on the TV series Being Human.

Goss's Dead Air, read by David Tennant, was voted 2010 Audiobook Of The Year.[6]

His Eleventh Doctor audiobook The Hounds of Artemis was given away free with a February 2011 issue of The Guardian. It is read by Matt Smith and Clare Corbett. His books Dead of Winter (Doctor Who) and First Born (Torchwood) were both nominated for the 2012 British Fantasy Society Awards. He has written numerous stories produced by Big Finish Productions in their Doctor Who related ranges.

In 2013, BBC Books published Goss's short novel Summer Falls, purportedly written by Doctor Who character Amelia (Pond) Williams. In September 2014 his Doctor Who novel 'Blood Cell' was published (Twelfth Doctor).

In addition to the three Torchwood novels and Doctor Who novels, James Goss is the co-author, with Steve Tribe, of The Dalek Handbook (2011), Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects (2012) and The Doctor: His Lives and Times (2013). In 2014 he contributed to the Shakespeare Notebooks.

In 2015 his novel Haterz, about a man making the internet a better place one murder at a time, was published in the UK bySolaris Books and launched at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London on 12 March 2015 with a book reading and signing by the author.[7]

Theatre[edit]

Goss's stage play Dirk, adapted with fellow student Arvind Ethan David from the Douglas Adams book Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, has been staged around the world. In 2006 it won "Best Adaptation" in the 28th LA Weekly Theater Awards.[8]

He wrote the play 7 Spies At The Casino about the making of the 1967 film Casino Royale, which was performed at theEdinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2007.[9]

James Goss has also written a play about the true story of the "terribly nice friendship" between Mr Peter Cushing and SirChristopher Lee, forged during their Hammer Horror careers (see Hammer Film Productions). The play, called ‘The Gentlemen of Horror’, was first performed on 27 November 2013 at the Woolwich Grand Theatre. It was performed in the summer of 2014 at the Camden Fringe where it received favourable reviews including [10] and [11]

Other work[edit]

Goss blogged from the Edinburgh Fringe for The Guardian's web site in 2007[12] and wrote a series of guest blogs about archive television for the AOL UK TV web site in 2009-2010.[13]

As mentioned above, James Goss wrote three novels for the Doctor Who spin-off series Torchwood. In addition, in theTorchood range, he wrote four short stories, published in the Torchwood Magazine; two audiobooks, Department X andGhost Train; and two radio plays both broadcast on BBC radio 4; Golden Age on 2 July 2009 and The House of the Deadon 13 July 2011. In 2015 he became the producer of a new series of Torchwood audio stories to be produced by Big Finish Productions ( Torchwood (Big Finish series) ).

From 2011 to 2012, James Goss co-produced with Joseph Lidster, the Big Finish Productions' range of Dark Shadowsaudio dramas. In 2014 he also produced the New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield for Big Finish Productions.

Since 2012 James Goss has written three Lady Serpent Egyptian murder stories, published by Endeavor Press. These are described as fast-paced, historical murder mysteries that brilliantly capture the atmosphere of ancient Egypt – as well as being enthralling detective stories.

TDP 555: 4th Doctor 5.1 Wave of Destruction

A modulated frequency wave cancellation signal isn’t something that the Doctor and Romana expect to detect in 1960s London. But then they don’t expect to find Professor Lanchester, the man who invented it, lying unconscious. Or MI5 investigating.

With the help of MI5 Agent Miller, Lanchester’s daughter Jill, and his nephew a pirate radio DJ called Mark, the Doctor, Romana and K-9 investigate. They soon discover that there is more at risk than they imagined, and an alien invasion is about to begin.

Can the Doctor identify and defeat the aliens in time? Will Romana manage to find a recombinant transducer before it’s too late? And how will K-9 cope with his new job?

'A very very good box set... Alex Kingston gives River her all... more layers to her character... 9/10 Sweetie.' Planet Mondas

1.1 The Boundless Sea by Jenny T Colgan

River Song has had more than enough excitement for a while. Deciding the universe – and her husband – can look after themselves, she has immersed herself in early 20th century academia, absorbed in writing archaeological theses.

But when a mysterious tomb is found in a dry, distant land, excitement comes looking for River.

Can Professor Song stop any more members of the expedition from dying? What deadly secrets lie buried within the crypt? And will British Consul Bertie Potts prove to be a help, or a hindrance?

1.2 I Went to a Marvellous Party by Justin Richards

River Song always enjoys a good party, even when she’s not entirely sure where or when the party is taking place. But the party she ends up at is one where not everything – or indeed everyone – is what it seems…

Being River, it doesn’t take her too long to go exploring, and it doesn’t take her too long to get into trouble. The sort of trouble that involves manipulating other civilisations, exploitation, and of course murder.

River is confident she can find the killer. But can she identify them before anyone else – or quite possibly everyone else – gets killed?

1.3 Signs by James Goss

River Song is on the trail of the mysterious, planet-killing SporeShips.

Nobody knows where they come from. Nobody knows why they are here. All they do know is that wherever the SporeShips appear, whole civilisations are reduced to mulch.

But River has help. Her companion is a handsome time-travelling stranger, someone with specialist knowledge of the oddities and dangers the universe has to offer. For Mr Song has a connection to River’s future, and he would never want his wife to face those perils alone…

1.4 The Rulers of the Universe by Matt Fitton

As shocking secrets are exposed, and a grand plan for the universe is revealed, River decides it’s time she took control of events once and for all.

Out in deep space, a clandestine society faces off with an ancient and powerful alien force – but, for River, there’s an added complication.

The Eighth Doctor has been caught in the middle, and she must make sure her future husband can arrive at his own destiny with all his memories – not to mention his lives - intact…

The Grand Betelgeuse Hotel by Christopher Cooper

TDP 551: The Prisoner Volume 1 from Big Finish

Based on the classic ITV series.

A limited edition of 3000 numbered box sets.

‘A new imagining of The Prisoner, keeping true to the original concept, but bringing it up to date, even futuristic. Wonderful and compulsive listening.’ Six of One (The Official Prisoner Appreciation Society)

‘An enjoyable, quirky, fun, and entertaining re-imagining of the series… It feels in tune with the original series, but is different enough to be original at the same time.’ The Unmutual (The Prisoner news website)

‘I’m not a number. I’m a free man!’

January 16th, 1967...

A secret agent resigns, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in ‘The Village’ — a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of The Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantel of Number Six.

The authorities running this Village are intent on discovering why Number Six resigned — but it’s a secret he steadfastly refuses to divulge. As the drama unfolds, the authorities, in the guise of the sinister Number Two, try ever more ingenious and aggressive means to bend Number Six to their will. All the while, Number Six is intent on two aims: to escape and to find out ‘Who is Number One?’.

Episode One: Departure and Arrival

A failed meeting in Belgium catalyses Agent ZM-73 to resign from his top secret post, but when he wakes the following morning everything has changed — even his name. Trapped in a bizarre coastal village, and with his every move monitored by the mysterious Number Two, the man now known as Number Six struggles to make sense of it all.

Episode Two: The Schizoid Man

Six finds himself fascinated by a strange bond which has suddenly developed between himself and Number Nine. But the next morning, Six wakes to find himself changed. A moustache, different hair, and… a new name. Number Twelve.

Episode Three: Your Beautiful Village

Something is very wrong, as Six experiences the most disturbing sense deprivation. Almost complete darkness, filled with haunting sounds, fragments of conversations, and a desperate call from Nine start to test his reason.

Episode Four: The Chimes of Big Ben

A new prisoner arrives in The Village. The woman is strong-minded, independent, and refuses to accept her new number — Eight. She is not a number, she is Nadia. And Six is convinced that she is his ticket out of The Village.

This set contains four episodes (two 78-minute, feature-length and two hour-long episodes), a Behind-the-Scenes audio documentary, and a lavish colour booklet.
