Doctor Who and the Cave Monsters | [Malcolm Hulke]

Doctor Who and the Cave Monsters

For the first time on audio, this is an unabridged reading of a classic Doctor Who novelisation, based on a serial from the original TV series. 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!

    "Quite different but interesting retelling."
    What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who and the Cave Monsters the most enjoyable?

    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.


    If you’ve listened to books by Malcolm Hulke before, how does this one compare?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Caroline John’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I managed it in two listens as I usually find audio-books quite long and rarely listen to the whole thing in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall a worthwhile, interesting expansion of one of the best third Doctor stories.
