Review: The Third Doctor Adventures (Vol 5)

Review by Michael Goleniewski


The Third Doctor Adventures range has always been a very strong one boasting many memorable stories under its belt. Volume 5, however, is a particularly exciting one as for the first time we not only have an actor taking over the voice of the Third Doctor but also a new actor to play Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart and a new actress for the role of Liz Shaw after the passing of Nicholas Courtney and Caroline John in recent years.

Review: UNIT – Assembled

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Since the launch of the modern day UNIT range, they have always gone big. Stories that feel ‘action-packed’ and with great drama all with the UNIT team of today. Only one thing they haven’t done… bring back the classic UNIT crew. Now that particular box can be ticked too. Continue reading

Review: The Third Doctor Adventures – Volume 2

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The Transcendence of Ephros
The planet of Ephros is due to die of natural causes and some of the inhabitants are over the moon about it, as their religion tells them they can use the planets destruction to ascend. Meanwhile the Galactux Power Inc is mining what is left of the planets natural resources. When the Doctor and Jo arrive on the planet and get in broiled in the goings on, could there be more that meets the eye happening here?

This is a good story with lots going on and some great characters. Sometimes Bernard Holley is a little ‘large’ as a character as Karswell but he and the rest of the cast do a great job on the whole in this one.
