Review – Doctor Who: Cold Fusion

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


It’s difficult to know where to start with this one. There is so much going on!

So lets start with the Virgin books. It was so exciting when they got the licence. The BBC at the time in their infinite wisdom had decided as well as booting off the TV Doctor Who, that books based on it weren’t worth it either. So Virgin books stepped in with some new fresh talented writers, like Mark Gattis and Russell T Davis (I wonder what happened to those 2?). These were obsessively written by some very talented fans of the show, for the fans. As such they loved swinging for the fences. Bringing in so much Doctor Who mythology as to make Omega take a peek from the antimatter universe to see what the fuss was all about. Not that there weren’t some great additions to the DWU, Bernice Summerfield being one of the most notable.

Big Finish – Doctor Who: Bernice Summerfield Vol. 3: ‘The Unbound Universe’

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


It’s another moment when Big Finish find something new to do you never would have thought of and you suddenly realise it’s what you never knew you always wanted.
Since they have gone down the road of ‘The New Adventures of Bernice Summerfield’ it’s been great to see the Doctor paired with Bernice and how they have managed to keep Bernice as the central character without lessening the Doctor. But to then throw in a whole new universe from a range that hasn’t had a release in 8 years, it’s both insane and genius!

“This really feels like an ambitious collection of stories that each work on their own but also feel like part of one bigger story that doesn’t get lost in the mix. The whole cast and crew behind this story are on their A game to say the least.”
