As a short the first installment in the Breaking Bubbles anthology works well. The plot moves along at a good pace as the TARDIS crew bumble into a prison ship amidst a breakout attempt by a deposed despot. Reminiscent of the film Inception or the holodeck episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Doctor and Peri must navigate between reality and the artificial holding area in order to save their own necks and perhaps a civilization while they are at it. There's nothing groundbreaking here but a satisfactory amount is packed in for a 30 minute short.

A good solid starting story that finds the Doctor and Peri land on a mysterious spaceship where they meet an exiled empress. Is she an oppressed heroine as she would have it, or a power-mad warmonger whose escape risks constant bloodshed? In a very surprising story, the Empress turns out to fall somewhere in between. Her interactions with the Doctor and (especially Peri) fundamentally influence which we'll be more predominant. Solid character story.

4 stories for the price of one, with a central theme of time, chronological excellence.

Holograms, Prisoners, and a hedge maze all feature in this first offering of the 6th Dr's latest adventures. Enjoyable story although I could not help feel, that it could have been made into a lot longer than the an half. I felt like I wanted to find out what happened after the ending, as there was unfinished business with the decisions that where to be made. Perhaps this story can be re-visited at some point in the future. the first instalments has you thinking that it was part of a larger script.

Story two moves on to the Doctor sort of playing groundhog day with himself and chronologically exposed human who sort of goes from a baby to a grown man and back on a frequency that defies logic or thought. It also has the element of being a time-whimey with the Doctor as the main player, rather a curios little setup but one that defines the whole genre of what could happen if you let it I think here.

Story three is a homage to every crime detective story from circa 1930's on wards. It plays Perry as the main character in a war torn academia of Cambridge University. It sort of Agatha meets Imitation Game quite a gripping half hour of fun and games.

Story Four sees the Doctor and Perry in an altogether different environment, with the main theme delicately and admirably handling the subject of Autism with real well crafted story of a young man feeling with his fathers unexpected departure, and, with his different spin on reality actually assisting and helping the Doctor solve a quite strange mysterious issue with intergalactic Gnomes!
Colin effortless and ever, and admirably countered by Nicola Bryant. Supporting cast really make for a first class instalment.
