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.

A great introduction to SF literature for the young reader - a collection of short stories including one by Philip K. Dick. And I got to meet Peter Davison (Doctor Who), which as a kid was A Very Big Deal.
