5.0 out of 5 stars Great box set, 16 April 2011
This review is from: The First Doctor Box Set (Doctor Who: The Lost Stories) (Audio CD)
If you're after something akin to the new Doctor Who TV series then this is not for you. Based on scripts that were initially drawn-up nearly fifty years ago, the two stories contained in this four disc set are very much in the mould of early historical serials such as "Doctor Who" - The Romans (Dr Who), Doctor Who: The Myth Makers[1965](Original BBC Television Soundtrack) and Doctor Who - 4 - Marco Polo (BBC Original Television Soundtrack), whereby the TARDIS crew meet famous figures and become embroiled in key historical events.
William Russell captures the late William Hartnell's fussy tones perfectly here, and along with Carole Ann Ford, and John Dorney as Alexander the Great, also narrates the story well. The second story, The Yellow Arc of Fragrance, is a simple and beautiful tale that is well-suited to audio, and the whole package is as lovingly put together and produced as you'd expect from Big Finish.
