There have been many radio shows on and around the subject - of Doctor Who but this box set gathers all the bespoke audio Doctor Who dramas made by the BBC specifically for radio for the first time, and throws in 'Doctor Who And The Pescatons' for good measure. Purists can argue this way and that about whether these stories fit into the established continuity of the tv series, but for the rest of us, there's a lot to enjoy, with authentic performances from established stars of the show.

Doctor Who And The Pescatons was a 1975 straight-to-LP release - how often does THAT happen?! - and features the then-Doctor Tom Baker and the late, greatly-lamented Elisabeth Sladen as his ever-reliable companion Sarah Jane Smith. With only one additional cast member it keeps the action descriptive and intimate, actually quite reminiscent of Tom Baker's later BBC audioplays Hornet's Nest and Demon Quest or recent years.

Slipback was a 1985 drama made with the incumbent Doctor, Colin Baker, with Nicola Bryant as his assistant Peri. Fans of the tv series will enjoy and recognise Valentine Dyall's satanic sibilance (albeit playing a different character).

The Paradise Of Death and The Ghosts Of N-Space were Nineties dramas set in the Jon Pertwee era, written by that era's producer Barry Letts and starring, alongside Jon Pertwee himself, Lis Sladen once more and the magical Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. It's terribly sad to note that all three stars - and indeed writer - are no longer with us. The addition of another companion, Jeremy, has divided fans with his over-the-top posho performance.

Classic Who 31 Dec. 2012
By MAK - Published on Amazon.com

This set shows of the classic doctors in fine form, particularly Pertwee - my favorite. The Tom Baker stories are told in more of a storyteller fashion (Tom reading) than a full cast drama, but are still a good romp.
