Doctor Who - Earthshock.

CD Info.
4xCD
Running time 4 hours & 45 minutes

What's Up Doc.
The fifth Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan & Adric encounters a group of palaeontologists have been savagely attacked while carrying out a study of fossilised dinosaur remains in an underground cave system on twenty-fifth century Earth.

A party of troopers & Professor Kyle, the only survivor of the attack, are investigating the deaths of her colleagues when they discover the Doctor & his companions at the site of the massacre.

The time-travellers are immediately suspected. In trying to establish their innocence & find out who - or what - was responsible for the killings, the Doctor is confronted by an old enemy...The Cybermen.

Timelord Thoughts.
The late Ian Marter who played Harry Sullivan a former companion adapted this serial written by script editor of the time Eric Saward to novel form which was originally published in 1983 after Earthshocks broadcast in 1982.

Fifth Doctor himself actor Peter Davison narrates this Audiobook book brilliantly adding grrat drama & sensitivity to the Doctor & depicts the various character's of the story with a great vocal range while The Cybermen are chillingly brought to life & voiced by Nicholas Briggs who voices them on both the bew series of Doctor Who & Big Finish audios as Briggs gives more of a classic interpretation which isn't quite how they sounded in 1982's serial.

The sound design, effects & music are as efficient as usual & give a atmospheric feel to the story while the two hander narrative between Davison & Briggs enhances the story & allows actor Peter Davison someone to act against.

Earthshock is possibly one of the most remembered stories of the Doctor Who Series for the simple reason that one of the Doctor's Assistants dies at the end.

I don't think for a moment I have written a plot spoiler for almost everyone will know the ending? It was dramatic and shocking- that doesn't happen to the Doctor's assistants does it?

Peter Davison is also one of the top of people's favourite Doctors and Cybermen are up there too with the favourite monsters.

Eric Seward was a great Doctor Who writer.
Marry that with the fact it's set in earth's Future and you have Space Freighter's in peril then you have a cracking mix of a realy good story.

So with all those in the mix I sought out this Audio Book reading by Peter Davison.

The book is actually written by the deceased Ian Marter based on Eric Seward's Serial for Dr Who. It was published in 1983 after Sewards serial shown in 1982. Even I cannot believe it is over 30 years ago since I saw it.

Davison reads the book well. When he depicts a character's voice there is a special effect that changes it so it does not detract from the story- but rather enhances the narrative.
The Cybermen too are voiced by Nicholas Briggs so this really helps dispel possible 'dryness' in the narration. - True some decry Brigg's voice as not being authentic but for me the voices are spot on in increasing my enjoyment of the books reading.

At a running time of 4 hours and 45 minutes spread over 4 CDs this is good entertaiment.

The story as I said is a cracker- well remembered and liked.
Davison depicts it well and the story rolls along at a good pace with no 'dead part; fillers.

Since 'Earthshock' was the first classic `Doctor Who' story I watched, it's fair that I should purchase the audiobook of the Target novelisation of the TV story.

`Doctor Who - Earthshock' is a brilliant novelisation of one of my favourite Who stories with the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa of Traken, Tegan and Adric and of course with the Cybermen. I read the actual novelisation of this whilst hearing the audiobook in the background. I bought the audiobook in Stratford-upon-Avon whilst purchasing the novel from Amazon. The story is read by none other than the Doctor himself - Peter Davison. There's also Nick Briggs who provides the Cybermen voices for this to, which are very convincing Cyber voices compared to the TV story.

This book was published from the Target range in 1983, a year after the TV story's initial broadcast. It was novelised from Eric Saward's TV scripts by...Ian Marter! Yes, that's right. Ian Marter wrote this novel. Do you know who Ian Marter is? He played Harry Sullivan, Doctor Who companion during Tom Baker's time. And he's done a remarkable job adapting this story into a novel that I've enjoyed reading and hearing.

Ian has written a number of Target novels based on original TV stories during the series, particularly stories from the Patrick Troughton days such as 'The Dominators' and 'The Invasion'.
