Review: Doctor Who – The Dispossessed

Review by Kenton Hall


Following the previous main range story Red Planets, I was looking forward to The Dispossessed; I’ve found myself enjoying the TARDIS team of the Doctor, Mel and Ace a lot more than I expected. Don’t get me wrong, I think great strides have been made with Bonnie Langford’s character on audio. And, perhaps most importantly, I was 13 when the Seventh Doctor and Ace were on TV.

Review: Doctor Who – Red Planets

Review by Kenton Hall


There are so many Seventh Doctors. From the clowning, malapropism-spitting first season, through to the increasingly sharp and mysterious Seven of Sylvester McCoy’s final two seasons, there has always been much to dissect about the era, not least of which is the happily temporary end of the show in 1989.

Review: Doctor Who – The High Price of Parking

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


John Dorney writes this 7th Doctor adventure in which the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), Ace (Sophie Aldred) and Mel (Bonnie Langford) visit the planetoid ‘Parking’ to park the Tardis on the way to its host planet Dashrah. Unfortunately things have gone awry on this planet-sized car park; as our Tardis crew find out when some rather suspicious parking wardens mistaken them for ‘Free Parkers’. But what are the free parkers? Why are they out to blow ships up on Parking? And what exactly is going on in the lower levels of Parking? Continue reading
