In an agony of indecision before Christmas when Big Finish announced that they would stop not only publishing but even selling their Short Trips anthologies, I bought half a dozen of them (based on a combination of reported scarcity and LibraryThing ratings) of which this is the first in sequence. It's a bit variable, to be honest; I was not blown away by the three Dalek Empire series of audio plays, and about half of these stories are explicit tie-ins to it (and it also includes the script for the Seventh Doctor crossover into that series, "Return of the Daleks", which has a rather implausible though well-conveyed denouement). The standout pieces for me were Simon Guerrier's "The Eighth Wonder of the World" (despite its unexpected revelation that Evelyn Smythe is an archaeologist as well as a historian) and James Swallow's "Museum Peace", which I already knew as it was released as a Big Finish audio freebie late last year.
