Format: Hardcover
I've been a regular listener to the Big Finish audio dramas over the years, but this is my first foray into the Short Trips collection. Suffice to say that I was underwhelmed by the stories on offer here; the various tales are interlinked but aren't really about The Doctor and his companions at all, instead they focus on an uninteresting character named Edward Grainger who comes into contact with the Time Lord at various points throughout his long life, never realising that the eight different incarnations are the same man. I'm going to reserve overall judgement on the series until I've tried a couple more, but at present I'm disappointed by what promised to be an enthralling and enjoyable collection of short stories.

It's not bad, but to be honest, this book really is kinda... dull. It's not the fact that all of the stories are linked, it's just the fact that this book feels like it was...rushed.

Format: Hardcover
"There is nothing special about Edward Grainger. His life is much like any other - full of family and friends, love and passion, incidents and turning points. He travels, works, laughs and cries. He has parents, a wife, a child, a grandchild. He lives life to the full. There is nothing special about Edward Grainger. Except... from the day he was born, until the day he will die, he keeps meeting the Doctor. Sometimes a different Doctor, sometimes the same Doctor. There is nothing special about Edward Grainger."

Book includes stories by authors such as Joseph Lidster, Gary Russell, Ian Mond, Glen McCoy, Steven Savile, Richard Salter, Benjamin Adams, Simon Guerrier, Brian Willis, Lizzie Hopley, John Davies, Stel Pavlou, Samantha Baker, James Parsons &
Andrew Stirling-Brown, Stephen Hatcher and a story based on a story by L.J. Scott...
