Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


In the latest two short adventures in this range from Big Finish the 8th Doctor in both is reunited with old companions in the shadow of the Time War. If these haven’t been released closed to each other, it’s a funny coincidence & a welcome one as these stories complement each other very well.

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
