Doctor Who Short Trips [1]: Zodiac, ed Jacqueline Rayner

This was the first of 29 anthologies of stories featuring the first eight Doctors published by Big Finish between 2002 and 2009. This takes the dubious proposition that astrology as developed on Earth might somehow be relevant to Gallifrey, and asks twelve writers to write stories based on signs of the Zodiac. The results are variable; the one that particularly grabbed me was Ian Potter's Third Doctor / Brigadier / Liz Shaw story "Still Lives", though I did not really see its relevance to the sign of the Crab which it supposedly represents. Also noted for one of my other lists, Joseph Lidster's "I Was a Monster!!!", representing Capricorn, which is set in Dublin.

I'll be reading these in order, but skipping those I have previously read, including the next two in the series which I read back in 2006.
