"After all, who knows, if I go down well, I might even make it my farewell performance".
Sometimes it's easy to say goodbye — to a friend, to a way of life, to a lover. Sometimes it's heartbreaking. And sometimes they just won't take the hint.
Say hello to 14 stories of goodbyes, as the Fourth Doctor contemplates his mortality after a funeral; a young man goes to murderous lengths to stop Jo Grant from leaving him; the First Doctor considers his flight from Gallifrey; the Fifth Doctor desperately tries to get rid of an unwanted companion — and more.
- Farewells was the first Short Trips collection published after BBC Books retired the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures and BBC Past Doctor Adventures book lines at the end of 2005 in favour of focusing on books featuring the current TV Doctors. From there on (and continuing until the line was discontinued in 2009), Short Trips become the only source for new, original literary material featuring the first eight incarnations of the Doctor and their companions.
