Review: Doctor Who – Alien Heart / Dalek Soul

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I love a little twist on the formatting that Big Finish do and again they have done it with these 2 interlinking stories in one release. Each getting an hour. So you get the pace of a modern 1 hour drama, cliffhangers in the middle and 2 stories that are different but one builds on the other. And in this way you technically get a 4 parter of sorts too

Death At Christmas – A Doctor Who audio drama!

Death at Christmas is the second seasonal Doctor Who audio drama to be produced, written and directed by Doctor Squee of the Gallifrey Stands Podcast following last years The Time Trap.

As the Doctor & companion Orla head back to Earth for her Dad’s funeral, they reminisce on how they met. The Doctor had just regenerated and found himself crashing into Orla’s life. Meanwhile the new health minister is unveiling a drug that could be the cure for Orla’s Dad’s cancer. But is this cure too good to be true, or could it be deadlier than the cancer itself? Added to this, is one of the Doctors oldest enemies manipulating it all from behind the scenes and if so can the Doctor pull it together after the change to stop him?

But who is Jospa? I liked this dynamic start of a new traveller being part of the team as we go in.978-1-78178-379-5

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


When you have a story called ‘A Full Life’ read by Matthew Waterhouse as Adric; when the one thing you know about Adric is he didn’t have a full life you know you’re in for a story that is probably going to break your heart. This is that story!
