Fascinating, Frightening, Fantastic, and Fast!
Big Finish Productions, the makers of full cast Doctor Who audio dramas, adds to its library of audiobooks and plays this fabulous collection of short stories. Read by well known performers from its other Big Finish ranges, these quick glimpses into the life of the Doctor and his companions are truly remarkable. Each 15-20 minute story brings to life a different iteration of our favorite time-traveling Time Lord. Don’t be fooled by its “short trip” title. These stories are dense, complex and fast-paced narratives that will pull you in right from the start. And they are so very clever it will leave you eager for more. Good thing Big Finish has a whole bunch more for us to digest. I love to sneak these quick hit stories in during my daily commute, or when I’m making dinner. Just the right story length for those “short trips” to and from the parents house, or on the way to book club. Hey, maybe I should recommend this at book club...they are so intriguing it could make for some good “what if” discussions. If you’re a sci-fi fan and love good story telling, this is a collection perfect for you.
