The Wheel. A ring of ice and steel turning around a moon of Saturn, and home to a mining colony supplying a resource-hungry Earth. It's a bad place to grow up. The colony has been plagued by problems. Maybe it's just gremlins, just bad luck. But the equipment failures and thefts of resources have been increasing, and there have been stories among the children of mysterious creatures glimpsed aboard the Wheel. Many of the younger workers refuse to go down the warren-like mines anymore.

Slightly too long but a great adventure!
It's nice to hear the second doctor back!
I've not read the print version but David Troughton's excellent impersonation of his father's doctor character certainly adds an extra dimension to the story.
It was a little flat in all honesty.
Wonderful. You can close your eyes and almost visualise Patrick Troughton speaking the part. His tone, pace and general reading style are easy on the ear also.
Not really, any deaths in the story were quite detached and happened to characters there were almost star trek red shirt characters who you barely knew and disappeared just as quickly.
A good story but the blue creatures seem a little silly and don't really come over as particularly menacing or scary. The setting and descriptions are first class but, apart from the Tardis crew, the characters lacked dimension and I struggled to care about them. If you fancy some second doctor nostalgia, you'll enjoy this reading but don't expect to listen to a "Power of the Daleks" quality story.
