When Doctor Who returned to our screens 12 years ago, Russell T Davies was so wary of “fan-servicing” (to use its pre-watershed variant) they didn’t even dare utter the word ‘Gallifrey’ for two years. These days, though, all bets are off – which is why the most recent series featured a cameo from a hermaphroditic hexapod last seen 43 years ago, while the Christmas Special is set to pick up where we left off in October 1966. (“Previously, on Doctor Who… actually, how long have you got?”) Big Finish has never had any such qualms about crossing time streams. But it’s only in the last couple of years it’s been allowed to play in the sandbox of twentyfirst- century Who, gifting the world such hitherto unimagined delights as River Song canoodling with the Sixth Doctor and Peter Davison’s Roman holiday being interrupted by the Weeping Angels.
