Review: Doctor Who – Vortex Ice / Cortex Fire

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


After the success of last month’s 5th Doctor release Alien Heart / Dalek Soul Big Finish now gives us a 6th Doctor 2-story set in the same format; with each story taking an hours running time. It’s a really strong format that leads to sharp pacey stories. These two follow that trend. Continue reading

Review – The Diary of River Song: Series 2

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Now this one was released during the Christmas period, but my, what a perfect way to kick of the new year!

River Song (Alex Kingston) is paired with not 1, but 2 Doctors in this set; those being 6 & 7, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy. And they manage to do it without River taking a back seat at anytime. Of course it helps when you have as strong a character as River, but it would be easy to have a writer accidentally turn it into a Doctor Who set by another name, this does not happen.drs02_slipcase_1417sq_cover_large Continue reading

Review – Doctor Who: Order of the Daleks

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I rarely comment on the artwork for Big Finish releases. It is always good; but when the artwork for Order of the Daleks was released, it definitely caught the eye. Stained glass Daleks. Genius! This certainly peaked my interest.

This story does not disappoint. It’s a marvellous script by Mike Tucker, who in the past has worked as a visual effects assistant in the original run of Doctor Who and in the 2005 version was a model unit supervisor who worked on the design of the modern Dalek. The passion for the show and the Daleks very much oozes out of this script. Continue reading

Big Finish Review: The Last Adventure (Doctor Who)

Written by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


It’s one we never thought we’d see, which is what Big Finish does best. This gap that they are filling in from the Doctors past? The 6th Doctors last adventure.

It seems like a problem that even though Colin Baker did not come back for his regeneration due to a disagreement with the BBC, one was written into Sylvester McCoy’s first adventure (queue Sylve in a dodgy wig!) But a little thing like that doesn’t stop Big Finish… but I’m getting ahead of myself.

In a very familiar format to the 6th Doctors last on-screen adventure in Trial of a Timelord this story is divided into 4 parts. 3 stories from the Doctors past leading to the one set in the ‘now’. Again like the ‘Trial’ story the Timelord’s are meddling whilst claiming not to be and the Valeyard is trying to kill the Doctor.DW6DTLA_cover_1815x2575
