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

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!
