While I admire the manner in which authors of WHO-fiction push the show's limited concepts and characters, in some cases I just don't see the point. This collection is full of examples of this. Fetuses being sucked from aliens? Bisexed water-apes? I just don't see why these concepts were important enough to be roughly married to DR. WHO. However, as with any collection, there are diamonds to be found. In my opinion, these include the 7th Doctor adventure with Krynoids, the characters are depicted to perfection. The curious "Model Train Set" offers an interesting comparison between the 7th and 8th Doctors. Otherwise, sorry, nothing to be enthusiastic about.

Sub-par effort!!!!!!! 8 Mar. 2002
By Daniel Firli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Hmmmm, I'm afraid to say that this anthology of short Doctor Who stories isn't really worth recommending. Out of the 15 stories presented here, only one was impressive. this being the 1st Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan story 'The Last Days' which captures the toe and characterisation of the period excellently. The rest are just mediocre stories or those that make you think "What the hell was that all about?" Along with stories featuring all 8 doctors, you'll find the return of the Krynoids and the Master. RECOMMENDED for the DIE-HARD fans only.

Some should be full novels 4 April 2014
By G. C. Levine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The short stories inside the book are fun, and some should be re-written to become full sized stories.

And the first story contains an interesting surprise. No I'm not giving anything away.
