Review: Doctor Who – Iron Bright

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) is flying solo when you finds himself London 1828 and faced with Marc (Christopher Fairbank) and Isambard (James MacCallum) Kingdom Brunel. The famous father & son Mechanics and Civil Engineers which the Doctor is a fan off. But before he can enjoy meeting his heroes the Doctor finds there is a ghostly mystery plaguing their latest project of the Thames Tunnel. But the truth is even more other worldly than that. The Doctor must act fast to save this world and hopefully another in the process. Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who – The Lure of the Nomad

Review by Kenton Hall


First things first, it’s great to have a “Something of the Something” title that feels fresh and evocative. Unlike this piece, which I was sorely tempted to called “The Review of the Story”.
It’s not surprising, however, as “The Lure of the Nomad” comes from the same writer who gave us the how-hasn’t-that-happened-before “The Silurian Candidate”, which may be my favourite Doctor Who story title ever.

Review: Jago & Litefoot Forever

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I have both been eagerly anticipating this release and also wanting the day never to come that I would know I’d be listening to the last new audio release from Messers Jago (Christopher Benjamin) & Litefoot (Trevor Baxter). Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who – Static

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: Doctor Who – The Middle

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


It’s Constance’s (Miranda Raison) birthday; so Flip (Lisa Greenwood) decides she needs to throw a “Wren party” for the occasion. When the Doctor (Colin Baker) takes them to the planet Formica it seems like an ideal world for the occasion, with the locals living a life of luxury. But what is the price of the freedom to do anything you want? Where are the older people & what is the mysterious Middle they keep hearing about? When people start giving the Doctor funny looks they soon find out. Continue reading

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
