Occasionally spot-on, mostly disappointing,

This review is from: Doctor Who: Short Trips (Mass Market Paperback)
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.
