All is not well at the Wenley Moor underground atomic research station. There are unaccountable losses of power-output, nervous breakdowns amongst the staff, and then - a death!

Caroline John's performance is good and the music between chapters is very cool and atmospheric. Sounded very "Doctor Who"! Made me wish there was more of it and also wonder who the composer was.An interesting listen as it differs a lot in places from the original program and goes into more detail.
Book is well-written. This is one of my favourite stories from the third Doctor era so it was good to hear this expanded telling that includes many interesting descriptions from the point of view of the monsters.
She gives a lively performance at times and does the different voices and accents well. I see she also reads another of my favourites, "Inferno", so might check that one out next.
I managed it in two listens as I usually find audio-books quite long and rarely listen to the whole thing in one sitting.
Overall a worthwhile, interesting expansion of one of the best third Doctor stories.
