Ah, The Memories!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Genesis of the Daleks (Vintage Beeb) (Audio CD)
The orginal LP that this is remastered from has always held a special place in my heart. It comes from those far off days when there was no way to relive classic Doctor Who stories other than the TARGET novelisations.
Being a long term fan involved in tracking down pirated copies of episodes years before any official releases was a wonderful experience but this was just a magnificent event that I hoped at the time would lead to more, alas it wasn't to be but the sheer nostalgia of being able to own a perfect quality Doctor Who recording in the late 70's still brings a warm feeling even today.
The LP was a condensed version of that all time classic, Genesis of the Daleks and featured brand nerw narration by the ultimate Doctor Who, Tom Baker himself. This gives the story even more punch as the Doctor is relaying the story directly for the listener.
The artwork has long been my favourite cover for any Doctor Who item and I'm delighted that it's reproduced here in exactly the same way as it was originally, albeit smaller of course.
This isn't really all that important or necessary to Doctor Who fans of today, and even to me really because I can just put the full story on the DVD player anytime I want, but in terms of nostalgia and memories it's priceless.
That will be the main selling point of this, and other titles in the range, nostalgia. It doesn't matter if the material is there in other forms, this was the first and well worth picking up.
