In addition to stories featuring the First through Eighth Doctors set in the Doctor Who universe, this anthology featured stories set in "other universe" settings such as those of Dr. Who and the Daleks and The Ultimate Adventure.
How many lives has the Doctor had? Perhaps more than you think...
Follow the Doctor and his companions as they take short trips around the universe — perhaps to a Wild West overrun with dinosaurs, to a land where robot rabbits roam, or a planet where the Doctor must marry or die — and then step sideways into other universes — worlds full of song and dance; planets made entirely of sweets; lands of movie monsters; places where the Doctor as we know him may never have existed at all...
- A significant number of stories in this anthology were written under pseudonyms: some names, like David Agnew and Norman Ashby, were used by crew members in the show's history; others, like Tara Samms and Lwrnc Mls, were thinly-veiled titles easily associated with the real authors; but most were original pseudonyms. These likely included Miche Doherty, Stephen Lock, Christopher M. Wadley, Harriet Green, and Steve Burford.
