Contrary to what a previous reviewer said, the individual books all have chapter markers so you can jump directly to a particular book if you know the chapter number.

For many thousands of years, the Suthekh had waited... trapped in the heart of an Egyptian pyramid. Now at last the time had come - the moment of release, when all the force of his pent-up evil and malice would be unleashed upon the world. The TARDIS lands in the year 1911, and the Doctor and Sarah emerge to fight a terrifying and deadly battle...against Egyptian mummies, half possessed humans - and the overwhelming evil power of Sutekh!

The story is interesting and meaty. Tom Baker provides a superb reading with excellent diction and a melodic voice. The story is narrated in a calm and smooth manner while characters are portrayed with excellent yet subdued acting. There is incidental music and sound effects throughout that do add to the atmosphere of the story. The music was a bit repetitive but still added to the dramatic scenes. After listening to this book I enjoyed going back and watching the TV serial of this story.
