Format: Hardcover
14 new short Doctor Who stories revolving around the theme of farewells:

In 'The Mother Road' the 1st Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan take a road trip across the USA in a charming, amusing and warm tribute to the first TARDIS family. 'Father Figure' is a decent if slightly predictable tale of the 2nd Doctor helping Victoria come to terms with her father's death.

'The Bad Guy' is an overwrought weepie about an alien who gets rather to attached to Jo Grant.

'Separation Day' has the 3rd Doctor attempting to reconcile two lovers on whom the fate of the universe hangs. 'The Very Last Picture Show' is a very odd and cartoonish tale of the 4th Doctor and Leela verses popcorn-munching zombies and space weevils. 'Into the Silent Land' is a decent but plotless character study of the morose 4th Doctor as he reaches the end of his incarnation.

'Wake' uses the novel idea of examining just the outward ripples of one of the 5th Doctors adventures in an alien necropolis, but ultimately it makes for a rather uninvolving 'so what?' story. 'The Velvet Dark' starts off encouragingly spooky with the 5th Doctor called to the Master's funeral, then descends into a melodramatic ending showing just how sad a panto villain the Master is. 'Life After Quelth' follows on from the ending of 'Frontios' with the 5th Doctor travelling with the Gravis and encountering a race of very stupid aliens trapped in a time-loop. 'Black and White' is a seemingly pointless tale of the 5th Doctor musng over a computer virus.

'Curtain Call' tells of the 6th Doctor's attempts to save a woman's life, and features a nice sting in the tail. 'Utopia' is a rather heavy-handed political rant as the 7th Doctor goes up against genetic engineering.

Awesome book! 23 Nov 2008

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are stories in here involving all incarnations of The Doctor saying farewell to various people in his lives--some loved, some not, some are complete strangers. All the same, the theme is as stated on the title. I would recommend reading this book.

doctor who short trips farwells 5 Aug 2007
By M. Crow - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The stores were well written, as usual for these collections. I enjoyed them and think it would be a good read for those who enjoy the classic Doctor Who series and books. If you like the short stories collections, this is one you cant miss.
