Short Trips Rarities – Museum Peace / Sound The Siren And I’ll Come To You Comrade

Review by Kenton Hall (Director of ‘A Dozen Summers)

Once again, a pair of Short Trips that illustrate just how flexible both the format of Doctor Who itself and the particular style of these narrated short stories can be. These two stories; initially available as subscriber-only bonuses to Big Finish’s main Doctor Who range are now available to all for download. They should both be cherished as they are prime example of what can be done within the format.

Review: Doctor Who – Destiny of the Doctor (The Complete Adventure)

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)

2013, the year we had all waited for when Doctor Who was turning a history-making 50 years old. We got to see Two regenerations, Two new doctors, an amazing multiple-doctor story on TV and another on audio with Big Finish. Everyone wanted a part of the celebrations and to put out something amazing. The now defunct Audio Go was no exception. Partnering up with Big Finish they came up with the idea of releasing one audio story a month; based on one of the then Eleven Doctors. As the anniversary was in November, starting at the beginning of the year in January made it all work perfectly. They assembled companions from most of the Doctors as the narrators for the stories, aside from the 9th (although getting in Nicholas Briggs is no bad replacement) and pared them with another actor to co-star. It seemed like quite a coo as well to get the then current companion Jenna Coleman involved. A big shout of to all of the wonderful writers in this set too including Andrew Smith, Matt Fitton and Nev Fountain to name just a few.

Review: Doctor Who Early Adventures: The Fifth Traveller

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)

Right from the beginning of this story we are faced with a 5-person Tardis crew: The Doctor, Ian Chesterton (Both played by William Russell), Vicky (Maureen O’Brien), Barbara (Jemma Powell) & Jospa (James Joyce). But who is Jospa? I liked this dynamic start of a new traveller being part of the team as we go in.978-1-78178-379-5

Review: Doctor Who – The Memory Bank and other stories

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)

I am always amazed at how many different types of storytelling Big Finish comes up with; Two hour stories divided up into episodes, hour long adventures, box sets with 3 or 4 interlinking hour long stories and short trips. Then they throw into the mix the 4 half-hour stories in one release!

Review – Doctor Who: The War Doctor Vol 3. ‘Agents of Chaos’

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)

See our review of The War Doctor: Vol 1: Only the Monstrous

The really impressive thing about the War Doctor range (yes apart from getting John Hurt to do it, the amazing scripts, wonderful directing and music) is the fact that each set whilst following a through-line has its own unique feel and theme. Agents of Chaos is no exception. The idea of having people and items that add a wild card to an already chaotic universe beset by the Time War is inspired.
