Could have worked well if the idea was developed and given a 2 hour entry in the main range as 20 minutes is not enough time and too long is spent on exposition

Running out of Time, which, is read by India fisher, and possibly more to her acting ability than anything else made me really sit up and take notice. She does have a wonderful quality and turn of phrase that makes you listen with a urge to want more, I enjoyed the final installment, it was a well written and well constructed 8th Doctor story that made the right sort of ending to this collection

A disappointing concluding story to the first volume of Short Trips. There was too much backstory and too many plot threads for such a short work and it all ends on a real down note while not being really being evocative of the Eighth Doctor or Doctor Who in general. The basic plot for the back story was decent and might have worked together as a fully developed hour or two hour drama.

A decidedly duff story to end the collection on (which, perhaps, questions the wisdom of putting the stories entirely in Doctor order). This one has almost the exact opposite problem from the previous story; that one was a reported story, all description and no dialogue, but this one revolves around a giant piece of exposition that takes up half of the running time. It just isn't very interesting, and the very end leaves a bit of a bad taste for the finale of an anthology. It's not truly a *terrible* story, but its placement does neither the story nor the listener any benefits. The best I can say is that India Fisher reads it well.
