Better then the TV series?

This is first rate radio sci fi with an excellent cast and two well paced adventures. It's just a shame there isn't more of it! You don't have to be a fan of the series to understand or enjoy these stories, although obviously that adds to the whole expirience.

Oh the memories!

What did you like about this audiobook?

I bought this on a bit of a whim and genuinely wasn't sure it would be any good without the screen shots accompanying the dialogue.

I was so wrong,


How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

I'm now looking for more to purchase as I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the full cast perform = those certain nuances& inflections that formed part of the great play between these characters, that only they could achieve has certainly stood the test of time.


Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Little bits have been added t explain what would be visible on tv to fill in gaps that would otherwise exist , they do not stick out and are totally in context,


What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Cast performance - spectacular in my humble opinion


Do you have any additional comments?

yes, Paul Darrow's voice is still utterly wonderful- total "ear candy" as my young niece tells me such yummy voices are now called!
