Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


In the latest two short adventures in this range from Big Finish the 8th Doctor in both is reunited with old companions in the shadow of the Time War. If these haven’t been released closed to each other, it’s a funny coincidence & a welcome one as these stories complement each other very well.

Since her work at Terminus Nyssa she has become a controller on the hospital ship Traken; which is parked close to Gallifrey in the shadow of the Time War. But the Timelords are not flavour of the month with most, even though Nyssa try’s to stay neutral. So when one of Nyssa’s staff is suspected of being a Time Lord there are questions to be answered, especially when things start going wrong on the ship. Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who Early Adventures – The Night Witches

 Review by Kenton Hall


The Early Adventures which are, in many ways, the natural evolution of the Companion Chronicles, have been a fascinating mix of the narrated style of those stories and the full-cast plays of the Main Range. Both allow audiences to revisit the eras of Doctors (and, at times, Companions) who are no longer with us.
