Not as good as I remembered
on 24 April 2013
Whilst the reading is full of energy and the story one of the all time classics of the series, the novelisation of Talons is compared to many others in the series somewhat lightweight. Coming at the end of the Terrance Dicks golden age and just before the start of the churn-em-out-once-a-month cycles, Talons is merely a conversion of the script to prose and unlike his early works, the author does little to embellish the thoughts and motivations of the characters. Its very much a to z.
An enjoyable way to pass a few hours but not the best nor he worst of the audio range.
