Review: Jago & Litefoot Series 13

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Every time I listen to a J&L boxset I think they have nailed the characters even more than the last time and that surely they can’t do even better. Every time they surprise me and outdo the previous set. Series 13 is no exception! Continue reading

Review: Torchwood – Dollhouse

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


If a year or two back when Big Finish started the Torchwood range you would have said they were going to do one with a new Torchwood crew, not involving any of our favourites I might have been dubious; but Big Finish’s Torchwood has been so good and diverse in it’s output that series producer James Goss has earned the right to do something completely new with it and earn’t my trust.

Review: Short Trips – Gardeners Worlds

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


At a lean 37 minutes this is a shorter trip than usual for this range. Writer George Mann takes you quickly into the story to make the most of the time we have by having the Doctor sense the nature of the problem. This does feel somewhat jarring, but once I got into the possibilities this story offers I started to enjoy it.

Review –  Short Trips: The World Beyond The Trees

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I’ve said before in reviews for ‘Short Trips’ how I feel it is a difficult and brave thing to try to fit a whole story that would usually get 2 hours in Big Finish into 40 minutes. Even the TV show gets 45 minutes. So I had just one thought when I saw the Jonathan Barnes story ‘The word beyond the Trees’ was 34.25; what balls!
