5.0 out of 5 stars The Silurians, mad scientists, UNIT and the Doctor, 8 Dec 2011

This review is from: "Doctor Who" and the Silurians (Audio CD)
This is another in the series from the BBC, where the original soundtrack of the story (in this case, from late 1969) is played, with linking voiceover by an actor to bring to the listener's mind's eye what the viewer would be seeing in the television story. These work tremendously well, and really bring back to the listener the original stories, the original actors and the whole classic Doctor Who atmosphere.

In this story, Caroline Johns, who played Liz Shaw with the Third Doctor, provides the linking storyline in this wonderful 7-part story about the Doctor becoming involved with a nuclear research facility which is plagued by mysterious power losses and accidents in the adjacent underground ancient caves. Is the Doctor right? Are the two things linked? Is there something or someone deliberately targetting the nuclear facility? And what is Doctor Quinn's agenda?

This is a brilliant story - Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and the UNIT troops are in fine form (funny to hear Paul Darrow as Captain Hawkins), the Director of the nuclear research facility manages to hiss every word in his manic obsession with his work and the interruptions of the soldiers, the Doctor attempts to reconcile every party in a search for amicable solutions. The Silurians are suitably diverse creatures in this, their first manifestation in Doctor Who.

Totally highly recommended for any fan of Doctor Who.
