Review: Doctor Who – Alien Heart / Dalek Soul

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I love a little twist on the formatting that Big Finish do and again they have done it with these 2 interlinking stories in one release. Each getting an hour. So you get the pace of a modern 1 hour drama, cliffhangers in the middle and 2 stories that are different but one builds on the other. And in this way you technically get a 4 parter of sorts too

Review – The First Men in the Moon

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands podcast)


Coming off the success of their wonderful production of The Invisible Man’ featuring one of the last performances from one of the great actors of our time Sir John Hurt, Big Finish had a lot to live up to in the second release from their H.G Wells adaptions range. Continue reading

Review: Torchwood – Visiting Hours

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Mild Spoilers!

In TV Torchwood I loved how they fleshed out what to begin with were mere supporting parts. PC Andy becoming a sergeant and a proper ally to the team and not just the comic relief that got them into places as a cop sometimes.

So it was also with Gwen’s long suffering husband Reece played brilliantly by Kai Owen. He felt more and more like part of the team and whereas Miracle Day wasn’t everyone’s favourite adventure; he really shined in it and had a lot to do. Continue reading

Review: The War Doctor. Vol 4 – Casualties of War

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


It was so bitter sweet listening to this one. Knowing with each world we were hearing the last performance of the War Doctor and what I think is the last of John Hurt at Big Finish.

They will fill the air with death & screams, with white hot weapons, fire that burns so brightly it incinerates the tears off you cheeks. Minutes, that’s all it’ll take. Minutes to see everything you ever loved turn to blacked meat and cracked bones.” Continue reading

Review – Running Through Corridors Vol 2: The 70’s

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I didn’t catch the first instalment of the ‘Running Through Corridors’ story, so wasn’t sure exactly what to expect.

I know of Robert Shearman & Toby Hadoke and have had the pleasure of interviewing them for my podcast; both had mentioned the book and I had always meant to get round to it. So when the second instalment came out and Mad Norwegian Press asked me to review it I jumped at the chance.

Death At Christmas – A Doctor Who audio drama!

Death at Christmas is the second seasonal Doctor Who audio drama to be produced, written and directed by Doctor Squee of the Gallifrey Stands Podcast following last years The Time Trap.

As the Doctor & companion Orla head back to Earth for her Dad’s funeral, they reminisce on how they met. The Doctor had just regenerated and found himself crashing into Orla’s life. Meanwhile the new health minister is unveiling a drug that could be the cure for Orla’s Dad’s cancer. But is this cure too good to be true, or could it be deadlier than the cancer itself? Added to this, is one of the Doctors oldest enemies manipulating it all from behind the scenes and if so can the Doctor pull it together after the change to stop him?

Review: Jago & Litefoot Series 12

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)



Going into series 12 of Jago & Lightfoot, I was reminded of Supergirl. In the TV version of Supergirl they recently had a guest appearance from her cousin Superman for 2 episodes. It’s now the mission of that show to prove it can still stand on its own after the Man of Steel guest appears. How do you top an arc from one of that worlds most beloved characters?

Review: The Torchwood Archive

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The 21st Century is where everything changes and Big Finish are ready.
When Big Finish brought back Torchwood in audio form, it was a stunning success. 1-hour standalone stories that concentrated on a different member of the team. Imaginative, entertaining and totally in keeping in the legacy of the BBC Three classic show.

So when they announced they were going to do a 2-hour special featuring all your favourite Torchwood characters (bar Owen) from both the original TV run and characters they had invented just for the audios for celebrate Torchwood turning 10; I was SO in!978-1-78575-423-4-1 Continue reading
