3.0 out of 5 stars Another one of those tricky regenerations, 15 April 2010
This review is from: "Doctor Who": Castrovalva (Classic Novels) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Doctor has long had a troubled history of regenerating from one form to another, usually ending up either in hospital, near death or on the brink of madness, and it seems that he's not always so successful at changing from one medium to another either. With Peter Davison's newly regenerated ailing Doctor travelling to Castrovalva to recuperate, on television this was a decent introduction to the new Doctor - no classic, but with a fair amount of originality and ingenuity after some of the tired and overstretched stories at the tail end of Tom Baker's tenure. But while Peter Davison does a good job of reading Christopher H. Bidmead's novel adaptation of the four-parter, reduced to a single voice it's hard to hide the relative lack of drama in the first half or the loss of cleverly realised visual elements in the last episode, making it more for the Doctor Who completist who might get more out of the occasional moments that expand on the original than the casual listener.
