Comments on the specific stories:
The Tip of the Mind (Zoe): Pretty good, if sad, and with a few hiccups at the end.

The Man from DOCTO(R) (Harry Sullivan): Silly fun, with Harry playing superspy.
Apocrypha Bipedium (Vicki, Charley): I wanted to like this, but the stuff they did with eight-year-old

This is the second book in the Big Finish Short Trips anthology series, and it is a much better read than the first.

“If you spent your whole life worrying about the consequences of your actions you'd never get anything done and the consequences of that would be unthinkable, wouldn't they? Faint heart never bowled a maiden over, you know.” 1 likes
“I expect most of you have read stories about the Doctor in other books, and I expect some of you think he is quite clever, even though he breaks a lot of rules, don't you? Well, you are right! In a crisis, he is just the kind of person you need around, he can come up with ideas almost no one else could. The only problem is, when you're not having crisis, he is just the kind of person to cause one.” 0 likes
