"Matthew Waterhouse is utterly superb, he really is, 10/10", Planet Mondas
"If you’ve never heard a Short Trip written by Julian Richards, I’d advise you to get that changed asap... you may not be familiar with Richards’s writing or Waterhouse’s narration. My firm suggestion would be that you remedy that soon-as: after all, either or both might be giants...", Outpost Skaro
"What has been brilliant for Adric with Big Finish is that all of his stories, particularly the ones from the ‘Short Trips’ range, have been character pieces... the script from Julian Richards and effortless narration from Matthew Waterhouse all conspire to give us another thoughtful, character-driven piece for Adric, 8/10", Blogtor Who
"A fascinating journey amid some fun fantasy trappings." - SciFi Bulletin
Doctor Who: Short Trips Monthly is a series of new short stories read by an original cast member.
Release #35 is a Fifth Doctor, Adric, Nyssa and Tegan story.
Sir Keeyoht of la Koura, and his loyal squire Adric, are on a quest. A great and noble quest to stop that most vile of Enchanters, the Doctor, from claiming the greatest treasure in the land. Along the way they intend to battle giants (or possibly windmills), inspire adventurers, rescue a princess and ultimately come face to face with that most terrifying of all monsters, the Dragon.
Except Adric knows there are no such thing as Dragons...
