Review: Short Trips – The Ingenious Gentleman Adric of Alzarius

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Adric (Matthew Waterhouse) awakes with his memory gone. Luckily he is soon told he is the squire to Sir Keeyoht of la Koura. He will follow his sire on a great quest battling dragons and seeking out the vile enchanter, the Doctor. This all sounds very familiar to Adric, but not quite right. Still, being the squire to Keeyoht with his teeth & curls feels right enough. Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who – The Contingency Club

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I really have to hand it to the writers of the new Big Finish audio’s for really nailing the motives and ‘USP’ behind each character in the new ‘5th Doctor, Nyssa, Tegen & Adric’ series and Phil Mulryne really raises the bar in this respect.978-1-78178-793-9 Continue reading

Review – Doctor Who: Cold Fusion

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


It’s difficult to know where to start with this one. There is so much going on!

So lets start with the Virgin books. It was so exciting when they got the licence. The BBC at the time in their infinite wisdom had decided as well as booting off the TV Doctor Who, that books based on it weren’t worth it either. So Virgin books stepped in with some new fresh talented writers, like Mark Gattis and Russell T Davis (I wonder what happened to those 2?). These were obsessively written by some very talented fans of the show, for the fans. As such they loved swinging for the fences. Bringing in so much Doctor Who mythology as to make Omega take a peek from the antimatter universe to see what the fuss was all about. Not that there weren’t some great additions to the DWU, Bernice Summerfield being one of the most notable.
