Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Defender of the Daleks Review

You thought we were done with Time Lord Victorious? Not yet! Along with the DWM Ninth Doctor story yet to be released in GN format (so who knows when we’ll actually be done…), there was this story from Titan Comics that I thought I’d finally get round to reading as we have the only other TLV release up on the site this week. Defender of the Daleks is… Alright, I guess. It doesn’t really add anything to the overall narrative though… so it’s right at home! Let’s take a look…

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Echoes of Extinction Review

Hands up who remembers Time Lord Victorious? It was only a couple of months ago the multi-media event ended but already it seems like old hat, probably because at most it was good but often it was average, so it didn’t exactly have the big impact it promised. Well, anyway, Echoes of Extinction was delayed several months due to the old pandemic-ness and therefore has even LESS impact than if it made its original date. Oh well, let’s have a look…

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Mutually Assured Destruction Review

So here we are, the sort-of last stop for the Time Lord Victorious strand. Admittedly there is another audio story that was delayed due to a certain pandemic that’s still to come, but for the most part this is very much an end point for the story. So how does it all end, at least for the Eighth Doctor? Let’s find out!

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – All Flesh is Grass Review

Here we have it, ignoring all the side-content this is technically the “main event” where everything Time Lord Victorious comes together, and I will at least give it credit in that it does tie everything together well and juggles all three Doctors with ease, making this one of the most Doctor-interactive multi-Doctor stories ever. What’s it like as a whole though? Was the pay-off worth the wait? Let’s find out!

Doctor Who: Genetics of the Daleks Review

It’s time for another Time Lord Victorious tie-in, but one with the Fourth Doctor, weirdly enough! This was announced late in the game (so much that it wasn’t included in the TLV subscription bundle…) and was made to act as a tie-in to an Escape Room activity that thanks to COVID barely got going. STILL! Funnily enough this story was actually good by itself, so let’s take a look!

DW: Daleks! Review

So… this somehow became a thing! Daleks! (yes the exclamation mark is part of the title…) is a series of five 15-ish minute episodes focused on the unique Dalek group we’ve heard/read about recently in the Time Lord Victorious stories. Sadly, even for an entirely free YouTube series, the production values are extremely low, so much so it’s distracting a lot of the time. Add in the fact that there are no human or even visibly alien characters, only robots and aliens inside robot shells, it comes off as if it had to be made in five seconds. Want to know more? Well, I don’t see why you do, but okay…

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – The Minds of Magnox Review

Time Lord Victorious continues this month, in several different formats, but starts with this one-hour audiobook. Now while I prefer full cast audio drama, I have no issue with a good audiobook, and thankfully Jacob Dudman does a good Tenth Doctor and has a good enough range for the rest of the characters, plus reading the prose. All that being said, is it actually any good? Let’s find out!

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Enemy of my Enemy Review

Let’s take a look at the latest addition to the “Time Lord Victorious” story arc: The Enemy of my Enemy. So we saw… or read in “The Knight, The Fool and The Dead” that The Eighth Doctor arrived in the Dark Times on a Dalek ship to stop his future self, this story is how he got there…

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not Review

It’s time to begin the Eighth Doctor Audio Drama strand of Time Lord Victorious with “He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not”. Obviously on the fringes of the core story seen in last week’s book, this is more about The Doctor realising something is very wrong with time and meeting Brian the Ood Assassin for the first time. The rest of the story is fun, but full of bad accents… Does it hurt it overall? Let’s find out!

DW: Time Lord Victorious – Master Thief & Lesser Evils Review

The next stop in the Time Lord Victorious story arc is a pair of “Short Trips”, basically 40 minute pieces of prose read in audiobook style by one actor/actress, and in this case these two trips feature Masters who have never really appeared in Big Finish audio stories (for obvious reasons, though less so now there are so many recasts!) So what are they like, and how do they fit into the Time Lord Victorious story arc? Let’s find out! … as much as we can at this point.
