This review is from: Doctor Who: The Macra Terror(Original BBC Television Soundtrack) (Audio CD)
Back in the early 1980's, the only way to experience vintage Dr Who was through the medium of fan circulated audio tapes (usually pretty dire sound quality) containing soundtracks of the various stories. I well remember the magic of sitting over my tape recorder listening through the static as these stories unfolded. The tricky bit was visualising what was happening during periods without dialogue. The story reviews in Dr Who Monthly and the Target novelisations were invaluable for this. Now of course we have these wonderful clear recordings, complete with linking narration and what a treat they are. Nothing can completely compensate for the criminal loss of these stories on video, but these CD releases are superb, bring some classic Dr Who back to life and transport me straight back to my childhood. Highly recommended !
