REVIEW: Shadow of the Daleks

The Fifth Doctor enters the Time War in Shadow of the Daleks, a two-part audio adventure released over October and November 2020. Conceived during lockdown and recorded virtually with a very small cast, this is undeniably an experimental release, and one that has intrigued me since it was first announced back in July. As it's … Continue reading REVIEW: Shadow of the Daleks
