One of the books from Big Finish, this anthology takes a look at monsters encountered by the Doctor, though it's not always clear who the monster may actually be.

Created just before the BBC started the new series of Doctor Who, there is a sense of tiredness in most of these stories that is fairly rare, though there were a number of interesting tales, particularly Matt Grady, who re-introduces us to Dr Elizabeth Shaw, who is possibly the least appreciated of the Doctor's Companions and 'Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life' by Anthony Keetch was quite good fun as well especially as it added a degree of interactivity to the invasion process that was quite prescient.… (mere)

Another in the generally good series of anthologies by Big Finish, this one leaning a lot more on Big Finish's own continuity and thus a bit less on TV Who (though Nev Fountain's "The Five O’Clock Shadow" bridges the TV and comics versions of the First Doctor, with the Cushing Doctor Who thrown in as well). I did not really understand what the theme was here, except perhaps that all the stories take place at different times of day, and the last one appeared to loop back to the first. The two that really stood out for me were Richard Salter's "Waiting for Jeremy", where the First Doctor demonstrates to Steven that rewriting time is not straightforward or even desirable, and the romp "Morphology" by Phil Pascoe, in the Third Doctor and Jo, along with a UNIT soldier called Osgood, become entangled in a situation where all vowels except 'o' are removed from the universe. (Pascoe's only other Who writing credit is the similarly linguistic early Big Finish audio ...ish.)… (mere)

Didn;t grab me as strongly as some of the previous volumes in this series, with some stories (like Marc Platt's) trying too hard and others not trying at all. I did particularly like the very first story, "Best Seller" by Ian Mond and Danny Oz, which has the Eighth Doctor and Chaley pollard encountering a evil book in Australia, and a long satire on reality TV, "Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life" by Anthony Keetch which has the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa faced with a cult sf show on contemporary Earth. I note also a story set in 14th-century Ireland, "Screamager" by Jacqueline Rayner, which brings the Second Doctor and Victoria into contact with the Black Death and is nice enough from the character point of view but not hugely historically satisfactory.… (mere)

This was the first short trips book I read and I loved it. I have been collecting all of them. They are short stories written about the doctor however they are not regurgitating the episode stories. Some of them are written by the authors that are directly envovled with the Doctor who classic episodes.
The only thing I am not too thrilled with is the short trip anthologies are limited to the 1st eight doctors. I think there are legal reasons for this.
Any way the Centurion follows the doctors involvement with one man thru out his life.
It was really interesting to see how they had them cross paths at crucial points in Edward Grainger's life.
Like I said I enjoyed this one so much it made me hunt down all the ones I could find of the others.
