Review: Short Trips – A Heart on Both Sides & All Hands On Deck

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.

A Heart On Both Sides” is read by Sarah Sutton as Nyssa. 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

Big Finish Review: Doctor Who – Doom Coalition 3

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


After just listening to and reviewing ‘The Chimes at Midnight’ for its Vinyl release it was really interesting to go from the early audio days of the 8th Doctor, when the character was so young and carefree, back into the sometimes darker world of the Doom Coalition series. Definitely the same character, but as we know less about this Doctor on the whole, they have really been able to do a character arc with him, that they might have less freedom to do with the other Doctors.

But back to Doom Coalition 3 and as always with the Doom Coalition series and the 8th Doctor, this delivers hard!
