Review: Doctor Who – Emissary of the Daleks

Review by Michael Goleniewski


“Emissary of the Daleks” continues the latest Sixth Doctor / Peri trilogy of stories begun with the intrinsically memorable “Memories of a Tyrant” last month. On a remote planet orbiting a solitary star, the Doctor and Peri have landed in order to discover how life has developed on a world with little to no external influences. They soon discover a devastated landscape full of gravestones of the dead and a nearby city on stilts under the control of the new masters of the planet.

Review: Doctor Who – Hour Of The Cybermen

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) flying solo in the Tardis lands in London following a distress call from UNIT. He finds the water on Earth has been drying up, and (no spoilers given the title), it soon turns out to be another master plan by the Cybermen and a version of the Cybermen we haven’t seen for a while.

Review: Doctor Who – Iron Bright

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) is flying solo when you finds himself London 1828 and faced with Marc (Christopher Fairbank) and Isambard (James MacCallum) Kingdom Brunel. The famous father & son Mechanics and Civil Engineers which the Doctor is a fan off. But before he can enjoy meeting his heroes the Doctor finds there is a ghostly mystery plaguing their latest project of the Thames Tunnel. But the truth is even more other worldly than that. The Doctor must act fast to save this world and hopefully another in the process. Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who – The Lure of the Nomad

Review by Kenton Hall


First things first, it’s great to have a “Something of the Something” title that feels fresh and evocative. Unlike this piece, which I was sorely tempted to called “The Review of the Story”.
It’s not surprising, however, as “The Lure of the Nomad” comes from the same writer who gave us the how-hasn’t-that-happened-before “The Silurian Candidate”, which may be my favourite Doctor Who story title ever.

Review: Doctor Who – Static

Review by Kenton Hall


I love Colin Baker. I should probably get that out of the way; lest this review seem sycophantic in the extreme. He was my Doctor growing up and I’ve since been extremely honoured to work with him on a film. He’s a great actor and a charming, generous man.Right. Taking all of the above as read, and sparing Colin’s blushes any further, Static is one of the most purely enjoyable (and unsettling) Doctor Who stories in some time and it rounds out a fantastic trilogy for the Sixth Doctor, Constance and Flip.

Review: Doctor Who – The Middle

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


It’s Constance’s (Miranda Raison) birthday; so Flip (Lisa Greenwood) decides she needs to throw a “Wren party” for the occasion. When the Doctor (Colin Baker) takes them to the planet Formica it seems like an ideal world for the occasion, with the locals living a life of luxury. But what is the price of the freedom to do anything you want? Where are the older people & what is the mysterious Middle they keep hearing about? When people start giving the Doctor funny looks they soon find out. Continue reading
