Review: Torchwood – Dollhouse

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


If a year or two back when Big Finish started the Torchwood range you would have said they were going to do one with a new Torchwood crew, not involving any of our favourites I might have been dubious; but Big Finish’s Torchwood has been so good and diverse in it’s output that series producer James Goss has earned the right to do something completely new with it and earn’t my trust.

Review: Torchwood – Visiting Hours

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Mild Spoilers!

In TV Torchwood I loved how they fleshed out what to begin with were mere supporting parts. PC Andy becoming a sergeant and a proper ally to the team and not just the comic relief that got them into places as a cop sometimes.

So it was also with Gwen’s long suffering husband Reece played brilliantly by Kai Owen. He felt more and more like part of the team and whereas Miracle Day wasn’t everyone’s favourite adventure; he really shined in it and had a lot to do. Continue reading

Review: Torchwood One – Before the Fall

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


If you had told me a few years back I would be looking forward to a Torchwood Big Finish release as much as a Doctor Who, I wouldn’t have believed it. Sure the TV show was great; but it’s always Doctor Who first. But Big Finish have done such an amazing job with the Torchwood range as to make it up there with their finest Doctor Who releases.978-1-78703-008-4-1 Continue reading

Review: Torchwood – Outbreak 

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


When The Torchwood Archive was released I was happy. It was a good feature-length story that brought in all incarnations of Torchwood from it’s timeline together in one story. But it was lacking in giving us a full team Torchwood adventure; jumping around time as it did and mainly focusing on a few characters at a time.

 This isn’t to slate that great story mind; but I am glad we now have Torchwood: Outbreak as well.

Review: The Torchwood Archive

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


The 21st Century is where everything changes and Big Finish are ready.
When Big Finish brought back Torchwood in audio form, it was a stunning success. 1-hour standalone stories that concentrated on a different member of the team. Imaginative, entertaining and totally in keeping in the legacy of the BBC Three classic show.

So when they announced they were going to do a 2-hour special featuring all your favourite Torchwood characters (bar Owen) from both the original TV run and characters they had invented just for the audios for celebrate Torchwood turning 10; I was SO in!978-1-78575-423-4-1 Continue reading
