Summary

In this, the first adventure of his third "incarnation", Doctor Who, Liz Shaw, and the Brigadier grapple wth the nightmarish invasion of the Autons - living, giant-sized, plastic modelled "humans" with no hair and sightless eyes. They are waxwork replicas and tailors' dummies whose murderous behaviour is directed by the Nestene Conciousness - a malignant, squid-like monster of cosmic proportions and indescribably hideous appearance.

Loved it!

A cracking good read and listen. Caroline John provides good narration and the story has some depth and zips along. Kept me entertained.

A faithful telling of a classic Who...

Delighted by the story being presented in a way that so strongly reflects what appeared on screen. The only downside for me was Caroline John's choice of voice for the Brigadier - a bit too OTT. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyable.
