It's a bit variable, to be honest; I was not blown away by the three Dalek Empire series of audio plays, and about half of these stories are explicit tie-ins to it (and it also includes the script for the Seventh Doctor crossover into that series, 'Return of the Daleks', which has a rather implausible though well-conveyed denouement). The standout pieces for me were Simon Guerrier's 'The Eighth Wonder of the World' (despite its unexpected revelation that

There's a little bit of misrepresentation on the back cover blurb. Here, let me translate:

“The good Doctor in his many incarnations”

(The good Doctor in four of his ten television incarnations)

“ is on hand to guide us through the terrible events”

(will pop up intermittantly. In fact you’ll barely notice him in the first 70 pages…)

Grumble. I feel if I pick up a book with a huge honking Doctor Who logo on it, I kinda expect
my favorite Time Lord to be first and foremost. He isn't even that in some of

A decent collection of scenes from the Dalek Empire as envisioned in the Big Finish audio series (can you envision something in audio?). Several Doctors appear in the stories: 3rd, 6th, 7th and 8th, along with stories focussing on some non-tv characters. However it wasn't essential to be familiar with any of the characters beforehand in order to enjoy this. A nice side trip.

DNF at 90 pages.
The first 50 pages of this book were alright but I started to lose interest after that because neither the doctor or his companions are in the majority of the stories that I read. What it says on the blurb of this book: "the good Doctor in his many incarnations is on hand to guide us through the terrible events" is misleading because the doctor isn't in the majority of the stories. Some of the stories were slow paced as well, which is surprising considering it is a short story c
