Great adaption of the TV classic,

This review is from: "Doctor Who", Genesis of the Daleks and Exploration Earth: Genesis of the Daleks AND Exploration Earth (BBC Radio Collection) (Audio CD)
The highlight of this CD has to be Genesis of the Daleks. This version of Genesis is slightly different than it was on TV, with narration and edits. In places, this can be confusing, such as in the beginning, the Doctor "steps out of the TARDIS" but than needs this thing called a time-ring to get home... This is only a minor niggle, as you soon get swept away with the story. I listened to the cassette version of this before seeing the video, and was never disappointed. The gritty script holds up well and, if anything, imagining the story taking place is better than seeing the vivid colours on your TV. And it's worth getting this just to hear Exploration Earth- if Tom isn't going to do a Big Finish serial, this may well be the only 'new' or unheard Doctor Who you'll get to hear him in...
My only problem with this is the price. This was made many years ago, and costs little for the BBC to put on a CD. Big Finish make brand new Doctor Who at a similar cost. Like all of the BBC releases, this is expensive, but worth the money if you can afford it.
