Review

"Geoffrey Beevers, who played the Master in The Keeper of Traken, is a worthwhile stand-in for the late Roger Delgado, his rich and powerful tones perfect for an audiobook reading." (http://www.huntspost.co.uk)

Geoffrey Beevers narrates this audio version of the novelisation of the Third Doctor story, originally broadcast in 1972. The story was novelised by the writer, Malcolm Hulke, who also added a few extra bits into the novelisation that were not seen in the original tv story. So we get a very well-rounded story here. Beevers is known to `classic' Doctor Who viewers as one of the incarnations of the Master in the 1970s, and suitably dastardly he was then. His voice in these audio stories (of which he has narrated several that I can think of) rolls beautifully through the language. (Beevers was also married to Caroline John, who played the Third Doctor's assistant Liz Shaw, and who sadly died in June 2012).

This story introduces us to the Sea Devils, aquatic cousins of the Silurians, creatures the Third Doctor has met previously. The Sea Devils are, right from the start, involved in the mysterious sinking of ships off the British Coast. But the Doctor and Jo soon find that one of his most deadly foes is also involved in the plot. Can the Doctor set everything right? Well, we're pretty sure he can, but we have great fun listening to him as he does so!

Although the Sea Devils are the reason for all the skullduggery and intrigue, they don't really have a huge role to play in this story; rather it is a story of the Master and the Doctor, those classic Third Doctor confrontations which Jon Pertwee and Roger Delgado did so well. The other thing that I felt really added to the whole Third Doctor atmosphere was the Navy involvement, with Captain Hart, and of course the rather sad figure of Mr Trenchard.

This is certainly not Malcolm Hulke’s best Target novelisation. In ‘The Cave Monsters’ the Silurians received an excellent treatment that enriched and established them as a credible species with a structured and believable civilisation. Their aquatic cousins, unfortunately, do not receive the same quality of treatment. In fact the novelisation is more focussed upon humans and Timelords, rendering the Sea Devils as little more than generic monsters of the week. Whereas there was a preoccupation throughout ‘The Cave Monsters’ concerning how the Silurians should be known, in this novelisation the ‘homo reptilia’ featured are simply known by the moniker given to them by a petrified human and no one really questions it. Otherwise they’re called merely ‘lizards’. It is disappointing that Hulke doesn’t develop them as he does the Silurians.

The one concession, however, is with a brief view of the Sea Devil hierarchy. On screen there appeared to be some sort of leader of the Sea Devils. The novelisation ratifies this by proclaiming he/she to be the Chief Sea Devil. It might not sound as exciting as Dalek Supreme or Cyber Controller but it at least establishes a leadership system which provides some information, however slight, upon Sea Devil society. The Chief Sea Devil even possesses an ‘iron throne’ in the novelisation.

The Master is quite well characterised. He is at his manipulative and cunning best in this story. His alliance with the Sea Devils is far more credible, and less foolish, than those he attempts to establish with the Axons, Autons and Azal. And this time at least it benefits him by providing him with an opportunity to escape. This story goes better for him than most. Unfortunately the fantastic sword fight between him and the Doctor is sadly absent.

Once in a while AUDIOGO releases a DOCTOR WHO unabridged novelisation reading, based upon the original TARGET range of paperbacks, that is dull, poorly paced and abhorrently boring immediately tossed into an old TESCO plastic carrier bag for its one-way day-trip to the local charity shop. Unsurprisingly, I think my OXFAM donated copy of DOCTOR WHO - GHOST LIGHT will either be heavily reduced or gathering dust on their shelf unwanted and ignored. Now, that was a release depressing to listen to.

However, once in while a genuine masterpiece is released and this is it; DOCTOR WHO AND THE SEA-DEVILS.

In 2012, if you want/have to/need to select one novelisation release then Geoffrey Beevers' charismatic performance in reading Malcolm Hulke's 1974 published novel is an unequivocal choice.

Nearly four and half-hours delivering thrilling action, a subdued characterisation of the Third Doctor, a chillingly personification of hatred embodied in the Master, and an aural canvas of technical & atmospheric sound effects that is more akin to a cinematic production rather than a humble spoken word release.

With an opening sequence - wonderfully written by Hulke nearly 40 years ago that has stood the test of time - that is as heart-stoppingly energetic as Spielberg's sequence of a mass troop deployment on Utah Beach in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. In Chapter One ("Abandon Ship") Crafted by Simon Power (MEON SOUND), we are treated to a multi-layered audio feast that assaults the ears with storm-forced winds, inconsolable waves, creaking steel-work of an aging vessel (SS Pevensey Castle), mechanical winches, and the chilling impossibility of crackling flames from the sea that was anything but empty.
