Review: Doctor Who – The Quantum Possibility Engine

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


As the 7th Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and Ace (Sophie Aldred) are having a casual chat on the Tardis, Mel (Bonnie Langford) comes in and stuns them; taking the ship. But why? Can our mild mannered computer tech have turned evil? Is she working for Josiah W Dogbolter (Toby Longworth) who is now president of the solar System? And will the Doctor find help in the mostly unlikely of places? Continue reading

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. Like Ringo’s drums, they loom large in my legend. But there is a subtle chemistry between the two actors, only briefed tapped in their one joint TV story, that bubbles away nicely.

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 Silurian Candidate

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The 7th Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), Ace (Sophie Aldred) & Mel (Bonnie Langford) continue their new adventures together. The Doctor decides to stop off somewhere to take care of something. As it’ll only take a little while there is no need for the companions to come with him. Of course Ace doesn’t buy this and it turns out for good reason.

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
