Review by Kenton Hall
I love Colin Baker. I should probably get that out of the way; lest this review seem sycophantic in the extreme. He was my Doctor growing up and I’ve since been extremely honoured to work with him on a film. He’s a great actor and a charming, generous man.Right. Taking all of the above as read, and sparing Colin’s blushes any further, Static is one of the most purely enjoyable (and unsettling) Doctor Who stories in some time and it rounds out a fantastic trilogy for the Sixth Doctor, Constance and Flip.

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)
As this is my first review of an ‘early adventure’; I’ll talk briefly about this range.
It’s been really good to see classic doctors revived and companions brought back in the ‘early adventures’. There were some really nice companion chronicles, but Big Finish doing full cast audio adventures have slightly ruined me for narration when we can hear a story with a full cast acting it out. These early adventures are mostly acted out with a full cast, with occasional narration to set the scene. The companions like Frazer Hines as the Second Doctor and William Russell as the First do such a good job you feel like they are there and I’m really glad they made the brave decision to do early Doctors replacing the actors we miss so much.
