Fantastic audio version of a classic Dr Who story.

I love listening to this Dr Who adventure.The author Terrance Dicks has created an exciting story that is populated with believable 3 dimensional characters :- Dr Who & Jo aided by Brig Lethbridge Stuart and CIA agent Fyler do battle with the alien shape shifting Axons.I remember watching The Claws of Axos when I was about 6,and being genuinely frightened
when the beautiful Axons transformed into terrorfying spaghetti monsters.
The narrator Richard Franklin (Mike Yates) does a fine job creating individual voices for all the different characters.
