Review: Doctor Who – The Haunting of Malkin Place

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I love the 4th Doctor range and usually only have good things to say; so where as this adventure isn’t without it’s charms, it’s with a heavy heart that I say it misses on a number of levels.

Review – Doctor Who: The Silent Scream

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Sometimes you just catch lightning in a bottle; this is one of those times. James Goss has written a story that exists in a very specific moment in time; when movies went from silent to ‘talkies’. When you get a time like that there is a natural fear from those involved in silent film to draw on as a story. This is just fun from beginning to end.

Review: Doctor Who – The Eternal Battle

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The writing partnership of Cavan Scott and Mark Wright return to Big Finish with the 4th Doctor adventure, The Eternal Battle (the kind of title that sounds like it should have been done before).978-1-78178-711-3The thing I am struck by with these guys is the fact that I never feel like it’s a Scott & Wright book / audio / any other projects as you might with other writers. I find more importantly; I get a great story that fits perfectly in the style of the Doctor they are writing in and then when I go to look at who wrote it, I then think, of course, they are great writers. With Cavan Scott I think he is particularly good at finding angles on the Doctors that sometimes adds and enhances the character but fits in with them. Continue reading

Review – Running Through Corridors Vol 2: The 70’s

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


I didn’t catch the first instalment of the ‘Running Through Corridors’ story, so wasn’t sure exactly what to expect.

I know of Robert Shearman & Toby Hadoke and have had the pleasure of interviewing them for my podcast; both had mentioned the book and I had always meant to get round to it. So when the second instalment came out and Mad Norwegian Press asked me to review it I jumped at the chance.

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.
