Side-step or Side-step (audio series) because it is not a story

Talk about it here.


A "side-step" was the term used on the spine of four early Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories to denote that they explicitly take place in the continuity of the Virgin New Adventures or Doctor Who Magazine comics.

Later Big Finish stories building on existing continuities (The Company of Friends, The Eternal Summer, The Comic Strip Adaptations) would not be given the "side-step" tag line.
