Big Finish Review: Doctor Who – Maker of Demons

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)

Leaving behind a new and sustainable energy source ‘Doctorium’ (discovered and named by guess who!). Years later The Doctor, Mel & Ace return to the planet; but the peace has been shattered and the Mogera have been transformed into monsters, seemingly by Doctorium; but as you might guess there is more to this than meets the eyes.
