'Another great release in the Short Trips range and further proof that not all stories in the much lauded “infinitely variable format” have been told yet. 9/10' - Planet Mondas
'I’m going to begin this review by saying a massive ‘thank you’ to the women of Doctor Who... Gender shout-outs aside, this has clearly been written by someone with an innate love of the second Doctor... I’m loving these Short Trips!' - Mass Movement Magazine
Doctor Who: Short Trips Monthly is a series of new short stories read by an original cast member.
Release #18 is a Second Doctor, Ben and Polly story.
The post-war London of 1948 is rebuilding, the people are recovering, and Ben and Polly have arrived with an old friend with a new face. But they're not the only visitors. A very different kind of war is being fought, in a department store, and they are in the middle of it…
