Evil of the Daleks: Essential,
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Evil of the Daleks (Original BBC Television Soundtrack) (Audio CD)
This audio, much like the others, are a more important aspect to the history of Doctor Who (and television) arguably more so than the tapes and DVD's currently available. Though nothing can completely replace what was lost, the quality of this audio book is more than enough to recapture the essence of this lost story. Long considered to be the greatest story by fans, Evil of the Daleks is surely nothing short of epic for its time; set in three distinct locations and time zones with a plot that takes various twists and turns and is very memorable. The narration provided by Frazer Hines is crisp, clear and appropriate so that it doesn't clash with the natural audio and really allows you to get invested in the drama, characters and peril. If there's a criticism at all it would be that the audio format doesn't completely satisfy with episodes 6 and 7 where you feel that the format hinders the obvious epic scale of the Skaro finale that was best suited for the screen. However this is a minor niggle in the context of what has survived and what hasn't and Evil of the Daleks does remain a fast paced and thrilling classic adventure that closes the first Doctor/Dalek era. Essential.
