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 and the introduction of a new incarnation.

The first three series took the form of single releases. Beginning with the fourth series, Gallifrey moved to a boxset format. Series seven and eight saw another format change, each consisting of a single, longer story.

Notes Edit

  • As with most of the Big Finish series, the main cast does not change between stories but there are many guest characters and cast.
  • Romana and Narvin are the only characters to appear in all twenty-six audio dramas in the series. As Romana does not appear in her second incarnation in the seventh series, Seán Carlsen is the only actor to star in all twenty-six episodes.
  • Gallifrey crossed over with some of Big Finish's other Doctor Who spin-offs in The Worlds of Doctor Who. Gallifrey featured in Second Sight.
  • The characters from the classic series that reappear in Gallifrey are Romana, Leela, K9 Mark I, K9 Mark II, Darkel, Andred, Commander Maxil, Ace and Omega. In addition, two distinct, alternative versions of the Sixth Doctor — namely, the Burner Doctor and Commentator Theta Sigma — appear in the fourth series.
  • In a documentary included with the sixth series, Gallifrey VI, the producers indicated that the series was inspired by the American political drama The West Wing.
