    "Excellent collection narrated by the real actors!"

    Narrated by the actual actors playing the various Doctors over the years, this is a beautiful and engaging collection of short stories. The narration by the actors is without flaw.

    "The original shorts are worth it"

    The reversioned tv stories aren't anything to write home about, but the original short stories that follow contain some real gems.

    "A Nice Variety"

    This selection of audio stories is a nice variety of stories from various different incarnations of the Doctor. I would prefer having a separate audio book for each story, simply to make them easier to find and organize, but the stories themselves are generally good.

    Much of this collection is made up of stories taken from the television show, read by the original actors. The short stories, while not lengthy, are a great addition to any Doctor Who fan's collection.

    "Truly awful."

    With the exception of the first story, this series is not worth the time and effort involved in downloading! The plots are absurd and silly. The best part are the musical segues between chapters and stories.

    "tales from the tardis vol. 2"

    I have always been a big fan of Dr. Who. This second volume is some of the worst writing and dramatization that I've heard; sorry I downloaded it. Volume one was good, not so with volume two.

    "A very mixed bag"

    Would you believe that this collection of Dr Wo stories takes a sudden turn for the better when Colin Baker turns up?
    Oh sweet irony!
    The first two stories are pretty uninspired TV adaptations read by Jon Pertwee and Peter Davison. Then Colin Baker reads one of the best Cyber Man stories ever and things really get going.
    Along with the TV adaptations there are short stories that sound like they were commissioned as audio books. Readers range from Dr's past, to assistants to apparently random actor who mostly turn in good if uninspiring performances.
    As you might expect from a TV series of such varied heritage as Dr Who, some of the stories are gripping adventure sci fi at it's best, some are plain old dumb 'run from the monster' hi-jinkery, some are apparently random and a bit dull (especially one about the Dr's train set coming to life).
    Overall there are enough good & well told stories here to make it worthwhile, but it is far from essential listening and doesn't deserve a place near the top of your wish list until you've worked your way through the 5 star sci fi titles availible on audible.

    "Dreadful, and I'm a Doctor Who fan."

    This is terrible, the first story is read by Jon Pertwee who sounds like a bored John Le Mesurier. I persevered and just about made it to the end. I couldn't finish the second story read by Peter Davison, it was so abysmal. I quite like Colin Baker so was looking forward to the third story but he did a voice for Peri which just made me cringe and that was enough to stop playback and remove this book from my iPod. Avoid. At all costs.
