5.0 out of 5 stars Fact of fiction, 28 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Mind Robber (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Continuing the recent trend for more tenuous narrators - Derek Jacobi appeared as The Master in 2007 - Peter Ling's superbly surreal stop-gap for Patrick Troughton's final season is a great choice for an audio book. With its mythical creatures, fictional heroes, remorseless clockwork soldiers, and fairytale theme, The Mind Robber sees the TARDIS seemingly destroyed and its occupants flung onto the land of fiction; its resident master seeks to be free of its snare, and The Doctor has been chosen to take his place...

Notable for, amongst other things, Frazer Hines falling ill with chickenpox halfway through recording, and having to be temporarily replaced, the story was a last-minute rush, but its imagination and wit are a great advert for the show's elasticity and ingenuity. Jacobi's melifluous tones are very easy on the ear, and the sound is as crisp and clear as you could wish for. David McAllister's original Target artwork finishes the package off nicely, and this is another welcome addition to the ever-expanding audio range.
