I have always been a fan of Doctor Who ever since the new series was brought back in 2005. I have therefore been interested in the old classic series wanting to know how the new series followed these episodes. I was disappointed that certain episodes were missing and was therefore pleased that it was possible to get the audio for each on Audible. I am a huge fan of Doctor Who and have thus far enjoyed the audiobooks that I have purchased as part of a number of different story arks and Doctors within the Doctor Who Universe.
I have a number of favourite characters both from the new series and classic series. My favourite characters from the new series were Rose, Donna, Amy and Clara. These characters I felt brought something unique to the series and provided much comedy during the series. I also enjoyed a number of characters from the classic series which were Susan from the first doctor era, Zoe and Jamie from the second Doctor era, Sarah Jane, Romana 1 and 2 and Nyssa from the fourth Doctor era and Ace from the seventh Doctor era. These characters all brought unique qualities to the role of the assistant in the who as well as the subsequent audio dramas crated as spin off material from the main show.
When considering the audiobook The Invasion my favourite scene would have to be when the doctor and companions were searching for the invisible TARDIS at the end of the adventure. This is because I could imagine that watching this particular scene on the tv would be amusing and entertaining to the audience. Also I chose this scene for comedy value even though I enjoyed the whole of the story and singling out one scene was therefore difficult.
This was a book which I wanted to listen to all in one go. This is because of the different episodes set out as part of the whole download each episode ended on a cliffhanger. The story was exciting and I wanted to finish the boo to find out if the Doctor and companions were able to prevent the Cyberman Invasion of Earth with limited support.
Engaging plot & characters, plus lots of excitement, well presented by the narrator! The villain who thought he could control the Cybermen is a bit enigmatic. The Doctor is wonderful, as usual! And who doesn't love the Brigadier?!
"good classic who"
yes as the story is good
not entirely. Sometimes the narration seemed flat.
Background noise made this audiobook somewhat harder to hear than most.
