Surprising to read that this was the very first anthology of Doctor Who short stories, published back in 1994 (other than the various annuals and fan publications). There is a supposed framing narrative of the Seventh Doctor visiting a California psychic to get readings of objects from his pockets, thus providing the stories, but it is not quite necessary enough to be convincing. Some contributors have since gone on to great things; some have disappeared completely. My favourite was Jim Mortimore's "The Book of Shadows", about Barbara Wright marrying one of Alexander the Great's generals and ruling Egypt - particularly interesting to come to this so soon after Farewell Great Macedon which has a very similar theme. Also I gave a cheer for David Auger's "The Golden Door" which features Dodo, though it is not very special otherwise. Hoping to read a few more Who anthologies rather than novels this month - you have been warned.

just wondering if you'd seen this youtube?

A video guide to the daleks in the style of the Hithchikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Graphically brilliant. The voice over doesn't quite work as well.

    Now I know that "psephologist" is a word.

    That would make things less awkward.

    Were your 5X great-grandparents related at the time, or did their descendants get together after the duel?

    I wonder why they attacked the guards instead of just claiming they were making a TikTok video or something. Having weapons on their person just makes it obvious they were spying.
