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: Doctor Who – The Ninth Doctor Chronicles

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Big Finish once again break new ground by having their first boxset to feature the 9th Doctor. Before you get too excited, sadly Christopher Eccleston is still a hold-out for now; but still, hello 9th Doctor!!Just from the beginning hearing that era’s version of the Doctor Who theme gave me goosebumps. But let’s break it down into individual stories first… Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who – The Haunting of Malkin Place

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I love the 4th Doctor range and usually only have good things to say; so where as this adventure isn’t without it’s charms, it’s with a heavy heart that I say it misses on a number of levels.

Review – Doctor Who: The Silent Scream

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Sometimes you just catch lightning in a bottle; this is one of those times. James Goss has written a story that exists in a very specific moment in time; when movies went from silent to ‘talkies’. When you get a time like that there is a natural fear from those involved in silent film to draw on as a story. This is just fun from beginning to end.

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.

dwtwd04_casualtiesofwar_1688x1500“The Daleks are coming and when they get here, they will dive on this city. 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.

Review: Doctor Who – The Eternal Battle

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The writing partnership of Cavan Scott and Mark Wright return to Big Finish with the 4th Doctor adventure, The Eternal Battle (the kind of title that sounds like it should have been done before).978-1-78178-711-3The thing I am struck by with these guys is the fact that I never feel like it’s a Scott & Wright book / audio / any other projects as you might with other writers. I find more importantly; I get a great story that fits perfectly in the style of the Doctor they are writing in and then when I go to look at who wrote it, I then think, of course, they are great writers. With Cavan Scott I think he is particularly good at finding angles on the Doctors that sometimes adds and enhances the character but fits in with them. Continue reading
