4.0 out of 5 stars The Colour Of Monsters., 12 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Monsters (Doctor Who: Short Trips) (Hardcover)
"Monsters" is the ninth book in the Short Trips range and is for the most part an enjoyable read. It does however get off to a bit of a non start with the very dull 8th Doctor and Charley story "Best Seller" followed by "From Eternity" featuring an unspecified Doctor interrogating a god like creature which I have to admit I struggled to get my head round on first reading.

Things do improve however with "Last Rites" a very enjoyable story about the 7th Doctor and Ace's experience on a spaceport on a seemingly dead world. The 3rd Doctor and Jo story "Touch Of The Nurazh" is a fairly standard story featuring the Master but is still very enjoyable and almost features a regeneration. "Flashpoint" and "These Things Take Time" are both average efforts followed by the excellent 4th Doctor and Sarah story "Categorical Imperative". This is followed by the best story of the collection, "Trapped" a very dark Sixth Doctor and Peri story in which the Doctor takes on a vampire ending with the Doctor questioning what he has become since his regeneration. The next story "Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life" is too long and too boring and is certainly the low point of the collection. The remaining stories "Sreamager" and "The Colour Of Monsters" are both pretty good reads and round of the collection nicely.

"Monsters" is let down by a few poor stories but for the most part is another excellent entry into the Short Trips range.
