You mean you didn’t enjoy listening to the world’s wettest Time Lord get put in the torture machine!? :rofl:

I think you meant to post that in the controversial opinion thread.

Good I am not the only one with FOMO for this one. I have decided that it will be my next one after the eleventh chronicle.

I’m sure it will be better when I hear him in Gallifrey.

Just finished episode 2 and now I like it. I like the relationship between Romana and Lela and I like the banter between K9 and K9. The setting and intriguing politics of this world. Looking forward to hearing more.

Just finished “Enemy Lines”.
While “Intervention Earth” was a bit disappointing - too rushed and not enough Omega , this is Gallifrey back on form for me👍

Yet more alternative timelines/universes.

Ace teaching Narvin to high five - does it get any better than that? :grin:

I have listened to the first three episodes of the first Time War set.
Celestial Intervention was good
Soldier Obscura and The Devil You Know were absolutely fantastic

Ace paired with Brax was so great. First I’ve heard of Derek Jacobi on audio and I can see the hype is justified. Leela and him made a magnificent duo.

I might end up having to buy the rest of the Time War sets :+1:

Yeah those two middle episodes are fantastic! Unfortunately I lost rather than gained interest in the later series after them, since they seem to mostly exist to write out the characters featured in them :sweat_smile:

I’m sure I’ll get back to the rest of the sets at some point, though.

TDYK is an episode I have such a love/hate relationship because yes, it is good and Jacobi is awesome and Louise Jameson is always brilliant, but i for me it’s the way the episode finally addresses the way Leela slowly has stopped being the ‘warrior’ she claims to be and, whether she likes it or not, has become more ‘time lord’, but I find the ending of it a bit of a cop out because they make the point of saying ‘yeah, look, she threatens to kill this guy but she’s just empty words’ which is a REALLY INTERESTING thing to do with Leela!!! (and let’s be honest, she hasn’t really had an interesting story since s5 by this point)

And then they get rid of her. Argh. What is the point of being interesting if you’re not going to follow through :frowning:

But I would recommend TW2 because it’s, I believe, the most well done TW boxset, and personally I really like TW3. And I love the new War Room series because finally it is kind of picking up those points from TDYK in a way I find very compelling.

Heard the rest of Time War 1, Desperate Measures. I liked it, plenty of political intrigue even if you see the end coming from far away :slightly_smiling_face:

They really just brought Rassilon back with a Make Gallifrey Great Again and a minute later went Lock Her Up :thinking:. Good thing Doctor Who never is political :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’m actually really excited for the next installment :+1:
