Classic Doctor Who Tales.

5 wonderful full length novelizations of class Doctor Who episodes. Timeless tales of science fiction adventures. My favorite, "The Pyramids of Mars" read by the one and only $th Doctor, Tom Baker. Highly recommended for long evenings aboard the TARDIS.

Ghost Light is very dim

Too bad you didn’t use another episode of Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Alfred. Ghost Light is awful. Silver Nemesis would have been much more entertaining

A buffet of Doctor Who tales.

A classic collection of tales through time and relative dimensions in space with the early Doctor Who's and his companions. Guaranteed to provide at least one tale to satisfy your Doctor Who cravings, if you like the classics.

The Good, The Average and The Oh Dear!

First 3 books I really enjoyed. Fury being one of my all-time favourites along with Pyramids. Stones being for me the best of the Key to Time saga. David Troughton, Tom Baker were of course excellent narrators and Susan Engel did a fantastic job with Stones, very easy to listen to. From there on the quality of the stories begin to decline. Nerys Hughes however does Sterling work in trying to bring to life the written version of a fairly average Davison era story which I found hard to stay with. Ghost Light I really struggled with. To be honest I had just about given up on Who by the time of McCoys final season and l think I watched about 10 minutes of Part 1 of GL. The audio story for me was complete and unadulterated trash with a very anti - Christian, left-wing, liberal agenda that was constantly promoted throughout.( I may have been a bit more forgiving if the overall story had been even average.)
But I endured to the end. Ian Hogg I found difficult to listen to but that said, any narrator would have struggled with that one. The bizarre thing is is that was written by Marc Platt who also penned Spare Parts for Big Finish which is my favourite BF production. Anyway there you go.
