This is a sci-fi compilation, basically aimed at young Doctor Who fans of the early eighties - the cash-in is fairly obvious. Offhand, I don't recall much about the stories - except for "Vurfing The Gwrx", which is a stone-cold classic of sci-fi humour. Particularly when the caretaker turns up at the end.
