A thoroughly enjoyable listen that expands beautifully the original TV episodes. William Russell's reading is always well paced and his portrayal of the Doctor evokes images of the erasable original.

Bit of a spoiler alert.
I was captivated by the narrative and the upbeat performance in the background whenever something was about to happen.
even though I've watched the episode, I found myself trying to figure out what was going on, it has a bit of sherlock mystery to it. And in the end I must confess that I got impatient of William Russell when they were about to reach the conclusion.
I'm 50 and a life-long (Londoner living in PA, but that is irrelevant), Who fan....I have to admit that I've never liked the first doctor. I went out on a limb and tried this book. It had good reviews. BTW, For the 50th anniversary, there is a new sequence of books available. I purchased the first few books and The third doctor story was good and inspired me to buy another Audiobook. This one. Unfortunately, for 90% of this story, these preconceptions were confirmed. The first two hours is like being trapped in a room full of illogical people arguing.( I understand that this is the plot). Because they are beloved characters, it was quite upsetting. I was waiting for the plot to resolve for far too long..Very frustrating. Without wishing to spoil the plot, the ending was a bit silly and not worth the mental effort for arriving there.
Worse than reversing the polarity. I almost asked for a refund, but for the chance to share this personal review.
This is just my perspective and I felt cheated by this story.. . If other Dr Who fans enjoy this, then I admire you. You must find good in everything.
Just my tuppence worth.
