    William Russell reads this exciting novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure.In a final bid to regain control of the TARDIS's faulty control system the Doctor is driven to experiment with a dangerous untried combination.With a violent explosion the TARDIS blacks out and the crew find themselves trapped inside. A simple technical fault? Sabotage? Or something even more sinister? Tension mounts as the Doctor and his companions begin to suspect one another.

    Any additional comments?

    The soundtrack is overloud and drowns out the dialogue at points. Also there are are awkward silences between chapters.

    As for the story, the weaknesses are nicely summarized by the Wikipedia article. I might add that the narration is a little overwrought at points, particularly for the female characters.

    The ending, well, let's just say this is one of the primary reasons this is for completists only. Overall, the story is weak. However, there are a few moments which help create the overall mythos we know and love.

    Just one family survives a shipwreck. Now the father, mother, and their four young sons find themselves stranded on a remote island. What will it take to stay alive? The odds are against them. But the clever, hard working Robinsons have what it takes to face the ultimate test.

    What disappointed you about Swiss Family Robinson?

    Unlike other Saddleback titles, the musical soundtrack is almost nonstop, repetitive and mixed in such a way to be almost as loud as the narration itself!
