Publisher's Summary

Its happening, Brigadier! It's happening!' Sarah cried out. The Brigadier watched, fascinated, as the lifeless body of his old friend and companion, Dr Who, suddenly began to glow with an eerie golden light... The features were blurring, changing.... 'Well, bless my soul,' said the Brigadier. 'Who will be next?' The last exciting adventure of Doctor Who's third incarnation.

Just like the original series

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.

Superb!

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!!

Brilliant book. Elisabeth Sladen sadly missed.

Excellent representation of the TV story. Sladen is wonderful. The spiders voices are good effects.
