‘The Tip of the Mind’ (ST)

Short Trips Companions


Please feel free to comment on my review.

Sandra with Zoe and the Third Doctor

I’ve read the amazing ‘Short Trips: Companions’ collection of ‘Doctor Who’ stories!

‘Short Trips: Companions’ is a fascinating book that I’ve enjoyed reading. This collection of stories from Big Finish focuses on the companions featured in ‘Doctor Who’. I like ‘Doctor Who’ companions and its great there’s this book about them. All the companions get to feature in each of the stories.

This book contains short stories by various ‘Doctor Who’ writers and is compiled by Jacqueline Rayner. I don’t usually read ‘Doctor Who’ short stories or review them. But on this occasion, I hope to pick out the stories I like and dislike in this review as there’s something for everyone in this book.

The first story of the collection ‘The Tip of the Mind’ is by Peter Anghelides and features the Third Doctor and Zoe. This is set after ‘The War Games’. I found this tale a little hard-going as this isn’t the most inspired story to start this collection.

The story is told in the first person by a character called Sandra, who I found hard to engage with when reading this. I liked the touches made to Zoe’s character as she doesn’t remember the Doctor.

‘The Tip of the Mind’ rating – 3/10
