5.0 out of 5 stars An epic adventure in time and space..., 5 Jun. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Daleks' Master Plan (Audio CD)
Being a fan of the series, the release of 'missing' stories on audio CD comes as somewhat of mixed-blessing. I have to admit that I was initially very sceptical of these BBC releases, and arrogantly assumed that the audio soundtracks would never recapture the original atmosphere of the show and 'lost' episodes, as I found was the case with the Ice Warriors in 1998 I was wrong...
The Daleks' Master Plan is the first of such CD's that I have brought and it is brilliant. The audio narration by Peter Purves and remastered recordings really capture the story, although no visual material currently exists (we live in hope!) in someways this can be seen as better, as what one sees in the mind is often not what would have been shown - especially with the series' limited budget.
The story chugs along at an excellent pace - with the only dip being the disasterous episode 7, I've only listened to it once and the story makes perfect sense without it!!
Apart from this, and perhaps lacking narration in some places, an excellent example of Doctor Who. Although the TV masters may not exist - if the future of the monochrome era soley exists on such audio CD's, then I certainly won't complain.
A great purchase - I can't wait until November when the BBC re-release restored soundtracks of the Troughton Dalek stories in a tin-set.
Excellent; Doctor Who at it's best.
