  • "Indispensable"

    Overall

    This audiobook (well, original BBC comedy) is what I play at 3.00 am when I can't sleep, or when I am stuck in a traffic jam, have an enormous mound of washing up to do, or pretty much any time I really need a chuckle. Then I make up my own brand of Vogon style poetry and imagine that whoever or whatever has annoyed me is screaming in agony strapped to a Vogon poetry appreciation chair. It is a necessary part of my life. You need it too. Buy it.

  • Doctor Who and the Zarbi

    "A World of Insect Rule"

    Overall

    Having this Dr Who adventure on VHS/DVD i found the teleplay noisy and the story some what disinteresting. But yet again i turn to audibles extensive library of Dr Who tv novelisations and wow i am captivated by the excellence pace of the piece, once again ably told by one time tv companion William Russell, who never seems to make the story dull. adding to his already reknown skill of character impersonation of the 1st doctor, his alien cfeatures are a sound to be believed. The whole story runs along nicely and at over 5hrs plus its advisable to take it in mangable chunks. 10/10.

  • Doctor Who: The Daleks' Master Plan

    "Master of All Daleks Plan"

    Overall

    Being too young to of seen this televised gem (1 week old) i have always wondered what it played out like back then, so i got the book and devoured every printed word. Now available to me in all its audio glory from Audible i sat and listened to this epic adventure..

    What a masterpiece of vintage Dr Who even including the Doctor-lite episode 'Misson to the Unknown' aired on my date of birth which sets up the grand plan of the daleks in their quest for universal domination. Bare in mind the tale is 12 episodes long at 25 minutes a piece so i would advise short chunks then comeback to it when time is available to you.

    Overall a thrilling adventure that grips you till the devastating outcome and loss of companions are felt. This is Dr who at its famous best. 10/10

  • Doctor Who and the Daleks

    "Terrifying journey to Danger!"

    Overall

    Having this title on VHS and DVD formats, was was interested in its audio book rendition. What a fantastic narrative piece, ably realised by one time companion William Russel who played Ian Chesterson oppersite William Hartnell's 1st Dr Who. It is interesting to note the story is not exact to the tv version which for me is all the better as the characterisations are wholly fleshed out and William Russells 1st Dr vocals is a gem to be behold, not so the Dalek voices, but i quibble.

    Thoroughly enjoble i recommend all Dr Who titles read by William Russel for an airing. Superb 10/10

  • "Bargain lost adventures"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    If you like Doctor Who, you need this bundle. Firstly, all 3 of these adventures are lost. These are amateur tape recordings of the show given the very best sound remastering and a linking narration from one of the show's companions. The format works very well with the narration being brief, to the point and quite charming. Also, your imagination probably paints a better picture than some of the sets did back in the day.

    Secondly, despite all 3 of these adventures being historical, there's a great deal of variety. The Myth Makers takes an ironic look at legend and provides inspiration for the current interpretation of the Doctor.

    Finally, all 3 of these tales see changes to the Tardis crew. There's the departure of Vicki, Dodo's debut and the arrival of Jamie. Wondeful classics at a bargain price.

    The Scarifyers is a series of rip-roaring tales of comedic supernatural intrigue set in 1930s Britain, distilling the likes of Dick Barton, The Avengers, The Devil Rides Out and Quatermass into cracking new audio adventures. The Scarifyers is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra, and has been described as 'rollicking good fun', 'a slice of audio perfection', 'the smartest and most enjoyable thing on British radio' and 'like Tintin but with the lights out.'

    This is the "so-called" reason the government won't reveal all they know about UFOs. The panic from this broadcast was significant. Although Orson Welles, Mercury Theatre and the Columbia Broadcasting System couldn't "soap the windows" of their listeners the night before Halloween back in 1938, they could annihilate the world for them. And that's exactly what they did with this radio adaptation of H.G. Wells' famous novel, War of the Worlds.

    From the late 1940's through the 1950's, in a world where space travel and nuclear annihilation were no longer merely the stuff of fantasy, science fiction began to achieve a new popularity. And, the work of noted genre writers began to be adapted in movies and radio programs. Based (however implausibly) on science, these radio broadcasts reflected the depths of the nation's fears, and the boundlessness of its imagination.

    The complete first series of My First Planet - a sitcom set on a shiny new planet, starring Nicholas Lyndhurst, Vicki Pepperdine (Jo Brand's Getting On) & Tom Goodman-Hill (Another Case of Milton Jones) The story so far: Unfortunately, Burrows the leader of the colony has died on the voyage, so his Number 2, Brian (Nicholas Lyndhurst), is now in charge. He's a nice enough chap, but no alpha male, and his desire to sort things out with a nice friendly meeting infuriates the colony's Chief Physician, Lillian (Vicki Pepperdine), who'd really rather everyone was walking round in tight colour-coded tunics....
