Una McCormack's First Doctor Short Trip taking a Doctor Who story and spinning it around sports is a rather interesting idea overall. This one could easily be a television story surrounding the World Cup being stolen by some aliens and unlike a lot of McCormack's other works there isn't this big message at the end, but gives listeners some plain 1960s fun. McCormack gives great voice to Steven, Dodo, and the First Doctor and her script works to Peter Purves' strengths as an actor. Points off for the fact that this is just a warm feeling in the moment but will not knock anything out of the park for the Short Trips range.

An amusing entry that has the Doctor, Steven, and Dodo thrust into investigating the mystery of the stolen World's Cup in 1966. It does a good job of capturing this crew and it's a cute story even if the solution is a bit expected.
