5.0 out of 5 stars Mission Incredible, 8 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Doctor Who Daleks: Mission To The Unknown (Doctor Who Classics) (Audio CD)
This epic serial from the 1960s is one long catalogue of death. Only The Doctor, and his companion, space pilot Stephen, manage to escape the carnage - what would today's censors say I wonder; well m'boy? Hmmm.
The story is a cracker though; slightly revised from the original Terry Nation script by novelist John Peel in 1989, the story is much more taut and less flabby than that televised. Peter Purves and Jean Marsh alternate narrative duties here, and for me Purves makes a much better fist of it than Marsh. Apart from anything else he manages a creditable impersonation of Bill Hartnell, and this coupled with his own cultured but distinctive tones, make for a great listening experience.
The artwork survives from the original Target novelisation, and with five discs inside, this is a highly impressive package all round.
The second half of the serial is available as a separate audio book.
