Gallifrey (audio series)
Gallifrey is an ongoing range, released by Big Finish Productions, all centring on Gallifrey and its affairs, both internal and external. Six series have been released to date, and a seventh entry was announced during Big Finish's 15th anniversary celebrations.
The main focus of the story is split between Lady President Romana, as portrayed by Lalla Ward, and Leela, as portrayed by Louise Jameson. It also featured the return of Mary Tamm as Romana's first incarnation.
Publisher's summary edit
Former travelling companions, Romana and Leela, are now living on the Time Lord home world of Gallifrey where life is far from dull. An on-going series of adventures on single CD.
Series one edit
Series two edit
Series three edit
Series four edit
Series 4, titled Gallifrey IV on the box set, was something of a departure from the previous series. While the series does have an linking arc, there is far less connection between the four stories than previous series. Series 4 was described by Gary Russell on the Making of CD as a sort of "Gallifrey Unbound", with each of the four stories presenting an alternative timeline of Gallifrey's history.
