If you could sum up Doctor Who and the Ark in Space in three words, what would they be?
If you are a fan of Tom Baker-era Dr. Who and the many classic stories of that era, then you will love the two audiobooks narrated and voice-acted by Jon Culshaw.
He does a spot-on, warmhearted, and accurate impression that often makes me laugh out loud in its exacting precision and care. All the nuances in the line readings are there and they are just wonderful.
Not to go on and on but it's almost like stumbling into a local bar and discovering the most incredible cover band ever with members who clearly have a love for the material and who are clearly fans themselves.
Listening to this audiobook brought back memories of my latch-key youth when the local PBS station would run two episodes back to back and I could imagine being whisked off into time and space with my first crush Elizabeth Sladen.
I would pay 2x as much for this wonderfully-realized nostalgic audio presentations. They are even surprisingly superior than the Dr. Who audio adaptations where cast members read a somewhat flat narration from the original episode's stage direction that is tarted up with a few sounds effects from that actual episode.
In summary, these two Baker-era Culshaw books are far, far superior to those and in my opinion just terrific.
Have you listened to any of Jon Culshaw’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Any additional comments?
Please commission more of these Tom Baker-era classic episodes with full sound effects to be read by Jon Culshaw. In addition to spending millions of dollars on new, original Amazon Video productions, I would respectfully argue that these far less-expensive Jon Culshaw Dr. Who adaptations would bring Audible members of a certain age, far more appreciation and enjoyment.
