At last, listeners are given the opportunity to discover how the Time War began…

On reading the words Gallifrey: Time War, regular Big Finish listeners could be forgiven for having a ‘Brenda from Bristol’ reaction: Oh no, not another one.

But that’s disingenuous, because of course the Time War had to come to Gallifrey: it’s the conflict’s ground zero. It’s Churchill’s bunker – to say nothing of the fact Big Finish have put 14 years of spade work into these Panopticon tales since 2004.
