4.0 out of 5 stars Double Trouble, 30 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Androids Of Tara (Classic Audio Original) (Audio CD)
David Fisher, author of the original story, has produced a new novelisation, specifically for this audio release. The Target book, written in the late 1970's by Terrance Dicks, was quite perfunctory, so Fisher is able to flesh out the characters a little more.

To be honest, he doesn't change that much, but the relationship between the villainous Count Grendel and his assistant Lamia is expanded and strengthened from the TV version.

Searching for the fourth segment of the Key To Time, the Doctor, Romana and K9 find themselves on the planet of Tara. Finding the segment is easy enough, but the Doctor is then unwillingly drawn into royal intrigue as he fights to stop Count Grendel usurping the throne from the rightful heir Prince Reynart. Romana also tangles with the wily Grendel, who finds her of great value - since she bears an uncanny resemblance to Princess Strella - second in line to the throne .....

John Leeson, the voice of K9 for three of the four years that the tin dog was the Doctor's companion, is a skillful audiobook reader. With less intrusive music and sound effects than some of the other releases, The Androids of Tara is an enjoyable pastiche of The Prisoner Of Zenda, and Fisher's new adaptation is an entertaining addition to the Classic Novels series.

Great story as part of The Key To Time era of season 16, this review is spot on to my thoughts on the story.
A great constructive review.
