This review is from: Doctor Who: Inferno (Classic Novels) (Audio CD)
Inferno is usually seen as one of the best stories from the original Doctor Who TV series, directed by Douglas Camfield and, owing to Camfield's ill health, Barry Letts. The novel, by Terrance Dicks, is not remembered as being as good, with the 7 TV episodes re-told in just 126 pages. The book certainly is not one of the strongest of the Target range, some of the characters lack a little detail, but Dicks still manages to deliver a text that is exciting and entertaining. Caroline John's super narration, combined with some very good music and sound effects, brings Inferno to life. She finds a voice for each character without trying to re-create the original performances or voices, the result being an audio that creates its own version of Inferno with far greater success than might be expected. Well worth a listen.

Great review, thanks. I was in 2 minds about investing in this, as the book is over a bit quick, but will now order this. Thanks again.
