Superb!

I wasn't sure if Elisabeth Sladen could pull off an audiobook on her own, many voices, many voice effects - but she does, really well! I've listened to it twice so far!!

Just like the original series

Elisabeth Sladen did a decent-enough job with the narration. I especially liked the high, squeaky-but-so-evil voice she used for the Spider characters. The plot and pacing clearly reflected the 20+ minute segments of the old, original Doctor Who shows, with lots of scene changes. I could almost see the old yellow flivver named Bessie that Jon Pertwee drove, as well as the Brigadier and the Sergeant from UNIT. Fun, likeable, not great.
