The Auton Invasion was one of the first Doctor Who Target books I read when I was younger. It is based on the Doctor Who adventure Spearhead From Space the first to feature Jon Pertwee as the Doctor.

Caroline John does an excellent job of reading this book. The characters really seem to come to life. Plus you have a lively music score and some lazer effects of the Auton guns which all add to the enjoyment.

Releasing the old Target books as audio cds is one of the best moves by the BBC and I am looking forward to future releases. It would be nice to see some of the novalisations of lost stories released such as The Web Of Fear or Fury From The Deep.

Congratulations to whoever first thought of using the scripts to write novels. They are so much better because they really stick to the plot!

This audio-reading is OK, but there are better ones out there. However Caroline John is obviously thoroughly enjoying herself reading this book, and depicts the characters well with different voices. It's one of the first novelizations for Terrance Dicks, and includes his famous description of the TARDIS arriving with it's wheezing and groaning - love it. As much as I didn't feel this is the best of the audio-readings, I did enjoy it, and now want to go and watch the TV version.
