When you're time travellers, the concept of a day - from midnight to midnight - can get lost: the Doctor and his companions arrive on different planets in different eras at different times of the day. They can show up during someone's lunch break or when they're asleep, at the breaking of dawn or the coming of night. Throughout his adventures, the Doctor meets many people - security guards on a night shift, mysterious space travellers riding the vortex, mobs of blobby Kobolds, a family sitting down to watch TV - but all too often their interaction is brief, a fleeting connection in the web of history. Time, it seems, is very much of the essence... Book jacket.… (more)

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.) ( )

The twelth collection of short stories about the Doctor and friends.
There were some good stories in this collection though they were a little 4th and 8th Doctor heavy. No particualler stand outs either good or bad. Light and easy to read. ( )
