    1. This is unusual in being a 7th Doctor story not featuring any companion - it's apparently set shortly before the TV Movie, rather than during the main BF continuity. The Doctor arrives on a run-down colony world, apparently seeking to retire from adventure and reflecting sadly on all the companions that have left him over the years.Of course, it's not long before monsters turn up, and the story moves into more familiar territory. Certainly, it's hard to see this working with any other Doctor, an [...]


    2. I bought this one in the Sylvester McCoy birthday sale over the weekend. Totally worth it! First of all there was an AMAZING behind the scenes interview with Michelle Gomez where she mentions how much she was scared of the zygons as a child and that she'd like to be the Doctor. The story was also very good. Michelle played a woman in a horrible dystopian future of austerity and scheduled and ticketed riots. But then things only got worse when the aliens showed up to enslave everyone. It was nice [...]


    3. In Valhalla, Capital of Callisto, Jupiter's premier moon, anything and everything is for sale. But Valhalla is in trouble due to Earth granting independence and cutting off the supplies. The Doctor visits the Job Centre and finds power cuts, barcoded citizens and monthly riots and a termite problem.


    4. When Marc Platt is good, he is very very good; but when he is not, he is boring, and I'm afraid Valhalla is in the latter category. I don't know why it dragged - indeed, maybe it doesn't, and I was just in a bad mood; but even Susannah York as the queen of the giant termites infesting the doomed human colony on Callisto didn't really lift it for me.


    5. Surprisingly low key and relatively non-weird when compared with Platt's usual what-the-fuck-is-he-on style of cerebral writing. (That's not intended as a jibe, I love that style.) Great pre-Missy performance from Michelle Gomez too. Also, a rare companionless story for the 7th Doctor. It was refreshingly different. I enjoyed it much.
