This review is from: "Doctor Who" and the Planet of the Spiders (Classic Novels) (Audio CD)
The final TV serial to feature Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor was scripted by outgoing producer Barry Letts, and with its unsubtle championing of Buddhist ideals is a somewhat heavy-handed and slightly laboured story.
Having said that, the titular arachnids are pretty cool on audio, and characters such as the deluded Lupton and enigmatic priest Cho-Je are well drawn.
Elisabeth Sladen does a decent job of reading the story, and her impersonations and accents are competent too. Overall though, despite its kudos as a 'regeneration story', this is a fairly run-of-the-mill early Seventies adventure, that will not stay too long in the mind after listening.
