April’s main range release is ‘Cry of the Vultriss’ and kicks off 2020’s Sixth Doctor trilogy and is notable for featuring Flip Jackson and Constance Clarke as companions after a nearly two-and-a-
half-year hiatus due to scheduling conflicts. The last release to feature this team was ‘Static released in December 2017 which ended with a dramatic twist and as such in this review there will be spoilers for both ‘Static’ and ‘Cry of the Vultriss’ in this review, you have been warned!
Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)
2013, the year we had all waited for when Doctor Who was turning a history-making 50 years old. We got to see Two regenerations, Two new doctors, an amazing multiple-doctor story on TV and another on audio with Big Finish. Everyone wanted a part of the celebrations and to put out something amazing. The now defunct Audio Go was no exception. Partnering up with Big Finish they came up with the idea of releasing one audio story a month; based on one of the then Eleven Doctors. As the anniversary was in November, starting at the beginning of the year in January made it all work perfectly. They assembled companions from most of the Doctors as the narrators for the stories, aside from the 9th (although getting in Nicholas Briggs is no bad replacement) and pared them with another actor to co-star. It seemed like quite a coo as well to get the then current companion Jenna Coleman involved. A big shout of to all of the wonderful writers in this set too including Andrew Smith, Matt Fitton and Nev Fountain to name just a few.
