Enjoyable adventure for the third Doctor,
This review is from: Doctor Who And The Doomsday Weapon (Classic Novels) (Audio CD)
The Doctor and Jo Grant try to help some desperate earth colonists in their struggle to prevent a ruthless mining company from illegally evicting them (by any means necessary including murder) from their new home planet. Bound up in events is The Master who as always seems to have his own agenda and shows a more then casual interest in the primitive aboriginals that inhabit some caves.
It's a great idea for the BBC to start to release these classic Target novels as unabridged audio recordings. Geoffrey Beevers (who once played an incarnation of The Master) does an excellent job of the reading and whilst he doesn't attempt direct impressions of Jon Pertwee, Katy Manning and Roger Delgado, he gives them voices that are totally compatible with the characters. The story 'Doctor Who And The Doomsday Weapon' is adapted from 'Colony in Space', both written by Malcolm Hulke who was one of the very best writers to work on the TV series in the sixties and early seventies.
A real treat for fans of the classic series or for anybody who just likes to listen to a good story. More please!
