An unabridged reading of Ben Aaronovitch's novelisation of his classic 1988 TV adventure featuring the Seventh Doctor.
With unfinished business to attend to, the Doctor takes Ace to Coal Hill School in London, 1963. The last time he was there, he left something behind--a powerful Time Lord artefact that could unlock the secrets of time travel.
Can the Doctor retrieve the Hand of Omega before two rival factions of Daleks track it down? And even if he can, how will he prevent the whole of London from becoming a war zone as the Daleks meet in an explosive confrontation?

I loved this tv serial and the novelization based on it as a kid. The audio is very good to. The novelization gave more information, and better character depth that was not shown on tv. Also the special effects that did not come out well in serial, come out better in word form. Terry Malory does a good job as narrator, he was always great as Davros, but I'm afraid he doesn't do a great job impersonating Sylvester Mccoy. The Seventh Doctor and Ace will always be one of my favorite teams. I hope they do more audios of their adventures.
"Remembrance Of A Classic"
I would heartily recommend this audiobook to any fan of Doctor Who. - Classic or New - and I plan to gift it to a friend of mine soon. The book is a classic in its own right as it seems to add extra detail such as back stories for the ICMG. I also love the way that the author treats you with respect throughout and makes the Daleks terrifying.
Apart from the aforementioned respect of the author, my favourite part of the audiobook was how it managed to make a story I have enjoyed multiple times in different formats, feel fresh and new again. You really start to like even the most obscure of the named characters which is very rare in novelisations.
Of all the characters I feel his narration most suited either The Doctor himself - even with his sometimes funny attempts to match McCoy's Scottish accent! - or Group Captain Gilmore. His narration is perfect for matching the Doctor's Machiavellian scheme both in triumph and frustrated desperation as well as the military crispness of the Group Captain.
I honestly don't know how to answer this question. It made me laugh and whoop with triumph. It made me somber in its moments of pathos. But I recommend buy it and find out for yourself!
One of my favourite Who stories is now on Audible!
"Terry Molloy brings dalek story to life"
Yes, as Terry Molly brings the story to life and does great impressions of some of the characters. It was especially chilling to hear him do Davros again after so many years
The ending as the pace and action goes up a gear
He brings life to all the characters, brings a chilling performance as Davros and the way he reads it draws you into the story
"A Perfect Storm of Doctor Who Audio"
Ever wondered what a perfect storm of Who audio sounds like? It sounds like this.
