"Brief Encounters, Brief Lives" (Doctor Who/Sandman)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 7th October 2000 (2)

The title of this tells you everything, and nothing. This is a Doctor Who "Brief Encounter" set during the Sandman story "Brief Lives". Unless you're familiar with that story in particular, and with the Doctor Who New Adventures (during the Ace-and-Benny era) in general, this story won't make any sense to you. If you are, then it will make perfect sense; a missing scene that fits seamlessly into both universes, painted with loving strokes and bright palette. Of course, it's very short, but it isn't any longer than it should be.
