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.

Hello Nicholas,
Pleased and surprised to see thoughts on this collection pop up here. As I recall it was moving sideways like a crab that was my main justification for it being a Cancer story, though the date for Inferno fitting in (judging by the Brigade Leader's calendar) was a definite bonus. When I proposed it, I suggested it should be Cancer but that it could plausibly be a Gemini too. It's still a story I remember fondly.
All the best,
Ian
