Review: Charlotte Pollard – Series 2

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I do love a challenge. So when the Indie Mac User team gave me series 2 of Charlotte Pollard to review I had one, because I had somehow failed to listen to series 1 when it came out. Surprising really, as I loved India Fisher in the role alongside the 8th and 6th Doctor (in that order). Continue reading

Review – Doctor Who: The Silent Scream

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Sometimes you just catch lightning in a bottle; this is one of those times. James Goss has written a story that exists in a very specific moment in time; when movies went from silent to ‘talkies’.

Review: Torchwood – Visiting Hours

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Mild Spoilers!

In TV Torchwood I loved how they fleshed out what to begin with were mere supporting parts. PC Andy becoming a sergeant and a proper ally to the team and not just the comic relief that got them into places as a cop sometimes.

So it was also with Gwen’s long suffering husband Reece played brilliantly by Kai Owen. He felt more and more like part of the team and whereas Miracle Day wasn’t everyone’s favourite adventure; he really shined in it and had a lot to do. Continue reading
