Gallifrey: Insurgency is a Big Finish Productions audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The series is set on the Doctor's home planet of Gallifrey.


The Time Lords' ancient and revered Academy finally opens its doors to students from other temporal worlds. Youths from the Monan Host, the Warpsmiths of Phaidon, the Nekkistani and even Humans descend on Gallifrey, many of them inspired by tales of the legendary Doctor. Leela has been asked to give lectures, hoping this could ease interracial tensions. But mistrust, taunting, vandalism and violence spreads between the unalike. And the Free Time terrorist who attempted to poison the water supply is still fresh in the memory. Many believe that President Romana's hope to spread peace through unity has failed.

Desperate for answers, she consults the remains of the ancient dictator who claimed to have forged Romana's life, Imperiatrix Pandora. Using K-9 as a conduit and buffer through the Matrix, Pandora's future echo tells of a coming civil war, Time Lord against Time Lord. She tells of the day when democracy falls and the President becomes the Imperiatrix.

Meanwhile, Inquisitor Prime Darkel discovers the true nature of the Free Time water contaminant. It's called the Dogma Virus. It lies dormant within infected Time Lords until the day they regenerate, at which point they become slaves to the Free Time movement. And no one knows if anyone is already infected. But Darkel knows more than she is telling. She has been spreading rumors, chaos and sabotage to bring down President Romana. Finally sensing her moment has arrived, Darkel publicly challenges Romana for the highest office of the High Council.
