Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands podcast)


SPOILER ALERT


In my review of Act 1 I detail why you should listen to this story without spoilers (every point there relates to both parts). To talk about act 2, I’m going to have to talk a few details. So if you haven’t listened yet, listen to both parts before reading on and yes you do want to listen to both parts, trust me! Continue reading

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 – Doctor Who Short Trips: Rulebook

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Well, let’s just put it out there; this story was perfect as a short trip. It never felt rushed to fit the short time allowed, it made perfect sense and had a story that fells like it was longer than it was in the best way. Continue reading

Short Trips Rarities – Museum Peace / Sound The Siren And I’ll Come To You Comrade

Review by Kenton Hall (Director of ‘A Dozen Summers)


Once again, a pair of Short Trips that illustrate just how flexible both the format of Doctor Who itself and the particular style of these narrated short stories can be. These two stories; initially available as subscriber-only bonuses to Big Finish’s main Doctor Who range are now available to all for download. They should both be cherished as they are prime example of what can be done within the format.

Big Finish – Doctor Who Short Trips: The Blame Game/Damascus

Review by Kenton Hall (Director of ‘A Dozen Summers‘ featuring Colin Baker)


Big Finish, as regular listeners will have no doubt noticed; offers an embarrassment of riches when it comes to providing new Doctor Who stories from across the history of the programme. With numerous Doctors and Companions taking part in full cast stories; however, some of the other narrated ranges can; occasionally I fear, get lost in the shuffle.

The Short Trips range is a case in point. I hope I’m wrong and that these marvellous short stories, enthusiastically performed by a range of wonderful actors are taken to the bosom of fans everywhere. And then removed from their bosoms and put in their ears, because that makes more sense. Continue reading
