Doctor Who Short Trips is a series of themed short story anthologies of new Doctor Who fiction, featuring the Doctor in all of his first eight incarnations. They feature stories written by some of the leading names in Doctor Who, past and present, including Paul Cornell, Gareth Roberts, Christopher H. Bidmead, and Paul Magrs. Repercussions features 16 tales set on a strange airship taking its passengers on a trip to who-knows-where. Among the people aboard is young adventuress Charley Pollard, just a few weeks into her life aboard the TARDIS alongside the Eighth Doctor, a man whose past she knows frighteningly little about. She encounters a diplomat trying to stop a war, a young man seemingly murdered by the Doctor, a tramp, a seismologist, and a republican trying to save the life of his plague-stricken daughter.

A varied collection of tales featuring the Doctor and a variety of people his actions have affected whether for good or ill. One of the more frustrating things about this book is that you are never quite sur which incarnation of the Doctor you are reading about and even in the rare occasions when we have a recognisable set of companions it's difficult to be absolutely sure you're reading about the right Doctor. This doesn't mean that the stories are not engaging in their own right, though none were particularly 'sticky'. ( )

I got this collection mainly because it had the only Erimem story I had not otherwise read or listened to - 'The Gangster's Story', by Jon de Burgh Miller. I was not bowled over by it, or indeed by many of the other stories in the collection, which is built around a theme of people whose survival affects the Web of Time and who are therefore removed from history by the Doctor - completely un-Doctorish behaviour, it seemed to me. I did rather like Kathryn Sullivan's 'The Diplomat's Story', but otherwise you can give this one a miss. ( )
