Sci-fi, mystery and action-adventure fan
Every time I see an audible book read by Tom Baker, I snatch it up. Here Baker reads and voices his most famous character, the floppy hatted, long scarfed, curly haired Fourth Doctor. Written by Terrance Dicks, this story has many of he same themes as many Doctor Who stories of the time (megalomaniac trying to take over the universe) but Dicks' writing is so taut and well-paced that you tend to overlook the tropes. Fun listen especially with Baker's fantastic range of voices
One of the best read Doctor Who novelisations, thanks to the commanding voice of Tom Baker, who played the fourth Doctor in the TV series. Baker here also shows a surprising range of voices that he can do. Writer Terrance Dicks is one of the best writers of Doctor Who, with a great sense of pacing and descriptive action.
I've been accumulating the Doctor Who stories read by David Tennant, and this is the best I've listened to so far. Loved the plot and the usual twists as well as Tennant's voicing of Rose and Mickey and the other characters. Now if they'd just have made this into a TV episode!!
