Publisher's Summary

Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen star in this classic audio adventure from 1976. 

The TARDIS' arrival on a lonely stretch of beach at night is closely followed by a slithering sound and a chilling roar. It marks the beginning of a terrifying adventure on present-day Earth for the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith.

The deadly Pescatons have arrived! Refugees from their own dying planet, these towering amphibians are led by the mighty Zor, whom the Doctor has encountered before. Soon the creatures have invaded London, wreaking death and destruction. The Doctor and Sarah must draw upon all their reserves of courage and ingenuity. 

Doctor Who and the Pescatons is the original made-for-audio Doctor Who adventure, first released on vinyl LP in 1976. In an exclusive bonus interview, the late Elisabeth Sladen recalls her portrayal of the ever-popular Sarah Jane Smith and what it was like to be part of the Doctor Who team in the 1970s.

Great cast, lacklustre script

The tiny cast put in a great performance but are hampered by a script that just isn't very good and is too keen to wrap itself up as quickly as possible. Not entirely surprising considering this was the first proper outing for Doctor Who on audio but still a disappointment. The Target novelisation is leagues better than the source material. The Liz Sladen interview is a really nice extra, though.

Misleading

The story only takes up 50% of the running time, the rest is padding that I had no interest in. TB's narration is excellent and the story is quite enjoyable, but not great. It needed to be longer, as it feels like the cliff notes of an episode.
