5.0 out of 5 stars Who can the Doctor trust?, 4 Dec 2012

This review is from: Doctor Who Sensorites (Classic Novels) (Audio CD)
This is another great reading by William Russell, who played Ian Chesterton in the first few seasons of Doctor Who. The Sensorites is a story of several parts; in the first part, we have the psychological thriller notion of an abandoned spaceship, apparently dead crew, mysterious wild people in the corridoors of the spaceship, and unexplained activities caused by the mysterious and unseen Sensorites. In the second part of the story, the Sensorites and the Tardis crew interact, along with the crew of the Earth spaceship, and the story deepens and broadens into a story of mistrust and greed, ambition and many characters playing for their own advantage, no matter what the cost. In the third part of the story, the Doctor seeks to resolve once and for all the mystery of the contaminated water supply for the Sensorites, and comes cross another mystery which requires his keen senses to solve and resolve.

At the end, we are left with the chuckling Doctor congratulating himself on his own perspicacity, Susan feeling that there might be more to life than travelling through time and space, and Ian and Barbara worrying about the long-term effects of the Sensorites way of life. And it's off to another adventure!

This is great stuff; a really characteristic story of the First Doctor's era, great interaction and use of the other Tardis crew characters, and the Sensorites and the Earth crew members are well written, and well portrayed. The story is read over 5 cds, which adds up to a great 6 hours of listening to William Russell's well-modulated tones reading this classic story. Brilliant, and totally recommended.

Definitely; although the character of Susan can sometimes be a bit soppy, she comes across well in this story.
