Big Finish Gallifrey Sale!

We’re heading back to the Doctor’s home planet for this weekend’s collection of special offers on Gallifrey…

This weekend, we’’ve got special offer prices on much of our much-loved 12-year old series set around the machinations and adventures of the Doctor’s people on Gallifrey, starring Lalla Ward, Louise Jameson, John Leeson, Mary Tamm, Juliet Landeau, Sophie Aldred and Sean Carlsen with a host of faces familiar from Doctor Who and Big Finish as guest stars…

The first three years of Gallifrey are on CD only at their usual price of £5 each, but this weekend we’ve reduced the bundles collecting them, with Series 1 at £16, Series 2 and Series 3 each at £20, and Series 1-3 together at £50.

From the fourth series onward, the releases become multi-disc sets. Series four’s journey through alternative Gallifreys is £20 on CD and £18 on Download. This is the same price for Series five and the Daleks arrival on the Time Lords’ homeworld in Series six. Another epic Doctor Who villain appeared when Time Lord legend Omega returned in Series seven, Gallifrey: Intervention Earth. which for this weekend can be bought for £10 on Download, or £12 on CD.

Which takes us right up to this May’s release of Gallifrey - Enemy Lines, which for this weekend is discounted to £13 on Download and £15 on CD.

The fact that you’re bringing Romana and Four into this gives me LIFE.

how could I not they’re my babies (it’s why this has become a fic ‘verse’ as opposed to just a fic, they would have no overlap with Quill and Dorothea at all but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to write them both)

I mean I find Four quite hard to write just because he’s so random and unpredictable but whatever I’m sure it’ll be fine 

I will never forgive New Who for changing the Master’s name to the Mistress and then creating the diminutive Missy.  The Master would never allow himself to be trivialized so!  The Master who remained The Master no matter the gender encoding of his body could have been an interesting and powerful exploration of the very concept of gender in an alien race.  

“Time Lady” also incites violent fits.  In Classic Who Romana is always referencing the Time Lords and I believe Four calls her a Time Lord.  It’s only ever the daleks who use the term “Time Lady” and who uses the daleks as a legitimate source of information on Time Lord society?!  

Ah, this wouldn’t trouble me at all if New Who terminology hadn’t infected the tags and posts of Classic Who.  I was watching Trial of a Time Lord last night and of course The Master swoops in to rescue his beloved Doctor complete with “I’m not prepared to countenance a rival.”  Why must the Doctor be so damned obstinate in admitting The Master does these things out of love?

I know Six is generally considered unwatchable, but between The Mark of the Rani and Ultimate Foe there are some excellent insights into The Doctor and The Master’s relationship.  


I used to wonder about that myself. Thought it was a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. A magical power holding together good and evil… the dark side and the light. Crazy thing is… it’s true. The Force. The Jedi. All of it. It’s all true.
