Doctor Who Short Trips is a series of themed short story anthologies of new Doctor Whofiction, 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. Christmas is the busiest time of year for the mysterious Doctor, whether he's caught-up in the violence of ancient Rome, taking Leonardo da Vinci on a day-trip to the stars, or popping in on the very first Christmas on the moon.

Christmas is a fairly narrow theme, but here it is taken pretty broadly: My friends Marcus looks at Roman-era astrology (not the only author to go for that time period), and there are a number of good short tales here - 25 in 231 pages, so about 9 pages each - and for once no real stinkers. I guess the ones that stick in my mind most are "Christmas on the Moon" by Simon Guerrier, "She Won't Be Home" by Joseph Lidster, and "Saint Nicholas's Bones" by Xanna Eve Chown. But in general it is a good seasonal entertainment. ( )

The second of Big Finish's Christmas-themed Short Trips books, it was enjoyable enough, though towards the end I started to get tired of the Christmas theme coming again and again-- a problem that never afflicted me with Paul Cornell's A Christmas Treasury, despite the fact that that book had more stories! I feel as though the earlier book had a wider variety of stories, but this book was by no means poor. My favorite was probably Eddie Robson's "Not in My Back Yard", with Joseph Lidster's "She Won't Be Home" a close contender-- no surprise there, since they're both among my favorite Big Finish writers.
