Elisabeth Sladen did a decent-enough job with the narration. I especially liked the high, squeaky-but-so-evil voice she used for the Spider characters. The plot and pacing clearly reflected the 20+ minute segments of the old, original Doctor Who shows, with lots of scene changes. I could almost see the old yellow flivver named Bessie that Jon Pertwee drove, as well as the Brigadier and the Sergeant from UNIT. Fun, likeable, not great.
(from my GoodReads review)
I wasn't sure if Elisabeth Sladen could pull off an audiobook on her own, many voices, many voice effects - but she does, really well! I've listened to it twice so far!!
