Decalog 4: Re:Generations none

Wonders was the fifth and final instalment in the Virgin Decalogs short story anthology series, which initially began as a compilation of Doctor Who-related stories. By the time this fifth volume was released, Virgin Books no longer had the rights to publish original fiction featuring the Doctor or other BBC-owned characters. As such, nine of its eleven stories have no apparent connection to the Doctor Who universe.

The sole exception is The Judgement of Solomon by Lawrence Miles, the first short story to feature former companion Bernice Summerfield for whom Virgin, at the time, had the rights.

After this book came out, BBC Books, now rights holders to original fiction featuring the Doctor, launched Short Trips, a trilogy of short story collections set in the Doctor Who universe; Big Finish Productions later took over publication of this line, whilst Big Finish also launched a series of Bernice Summerfield short story collections and novels.
