Grows on you,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Paradise of Death. Starring Jon Pertwee (BBC Radio Collection) (Audio CD)
Jon Pertwee was keen to bring the Doctor back, according to Elizabeth Sladen he somewhat regreted leaving the show when they refused him a pay rise. Anyway, this is a good adventure and stands up very well as being modern - could be anywhere from the 1970's to the presnt day. OK some of the plot is a bit standard fair, assitant being tied up, Dr coming to the resucue etc but then a lot of Dr Who was like that. The charecter of Jeremy is a bit irritating but it sort of works as a distinctive voice for audio and slight comic releif. The villans are excellent and although Jon Pertwee does occasionally sound older, the performances of the cast are great. I think in some ways it is a real shame that the BBC didn't make more of these, (only Ghosts of N-space followed) on the otherhand the team at Big Finish productions have done a much betetr job of producing Dr Who audio than the BBC ever managed.
