Short Trips: Volume 1 was a 2010 anthological release by Big Finish Productions. It began a series of double-disc audios, each of which contained a single short story for each of the Doctor's first eight incarnations. Like all releases in the 2010-11 series of Short Trip anthologies, the majority of the stories on Volume 1 were from authors new to Big Finish. Except for Colin Baker and George Mann, the authors featured on this release had been chosen after having responded to Big Finish's open invitation for submissions.
Each story was read by an actor closely associated with the particular incarnation of the Doctor who was featured in that story. However, the actor involved did not necessarily portray the character for which they were most famous. For instance, Katy Manning read the Third Doctor story on this volume, but it in no way involved Jo Grant.
