    This full-cast drama, part of BBC Audiobooks' Classic Radio Sci-Fi series, is based on the classic post-war 'science fantasy' novel which made John Wyndham famous, and whose appeal endures to this day. Giles Cooper's six-part adaptation stars Gary Watson, Barbara Shelley and Peter Sallis, with appearances from Doctor Who names Peter Pratt, Christopher Bidmead and David Brierley. Divided by blindness and societal breakdown, humanity is at the mercy of the carniverous Triffids....

    "Good as the book?"
    Overall

    Having read the book and also listened to another audio narration of this classic, I was looking foward to hearing it once again.
    I can say that this dramatised version would appeal to those who prefer an enacted potrayal of the book rather than an accurate literary presentation.
    My evaluation of this novel is born from appreciation of John Wyndhams' writing talent rather than attempted immersion in a dramatised rendition. I would have much preferred this story to be an audio book in it's truest sense.
