Excellent "read"

These audio renditions are phenomenal for blind persons like myself. The narration makes the stories more vivid than the video versions.

I was not sure at first, but now I am sold... these audio versions are superior!

Bravo!

Not intended for listening

As a huge fan of all Doctor Who stories, I have listened to many by now. It is nice that this collection is interspersed with interviews, and that the recordings are obviously original, but the sound effects are way too loud compared to the voices.

I wish there was a way to optimize volumes to personal preferences, so that the annoying way the Daleks and that androgynous character could be turned down to almost zero, while still being able to understand their phrases.

Need More Releases like this!!!

What did you love best about Doctor Who: Classic TV Adventures Collection One?

Actual actors!!!! Dramatized as these stories are, which makes them delightful to listen too.

Who was your favorite character and why?

3rd Doctor always IMO! Jon Pertwee does an awesome job. Tom Baker comes next!

Any additional comments?

Pre-ordered Collection 2!! Wished they'd start with the 1st Doctor - 12th Doctor and release the TV Audio Collection in order of release in conjunction as they were released in the 60's

Great value for great stories

What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who: Classic TV Adventures Collection One the most enjoyable?

Definitely worth the price, even if you already have one or two of the stories in the collection. The episodes are great to begin with, and its nice having them all in one collection so I'm not installing seven different audiobooks. I'm planning on getting Collection 2 when that comes out as well.

What other book might you compare Doctor Who: Classic TV Adventures Collection One to and why?

This reminds me of the Adventures in History collection and the Yeti Attacks! collection

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I've listened to multiple Doctor Who soundtracks and these are just as good as some of the others

Great listen to actual Doctor Who Classic Seasons

These soundtracks reminded me when I was an adolescent and could only listen to Doctor Who on the radio, since the classic shows aired late at night. The action and story line kept me interested for the next episode. Great to have these audio's available. There are more season. Hopefully more will be available.

heart-warming nostalgia

What a great experience. I have the episodes at home on VHS or DVD but the narrations and interviews gave a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I have been a doctor who fan all my life so this a must have for my collection.

Good Value

Where does Doctor Who: Classic TV Adventures Collection One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

If you've bought the DVD's and don't want to pay full price for the soundtracks these are very reasonably priced.

too much narration

Good stories when they get going. But the narration is hard going and seems tacked on. To me can spoil the flow of the stories. later Dr Who radio plays I have heard worked better.

Love, Love, Love

What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who: Classic TV Adventures Collection One the most enjoyable?

I am a fan of Dr Who and used to watch the original series' so I am a bit biased. I loved the way they combined the original sound track with narration. It was more like listening to a play. It was very well done.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The music and sound effects sounded great.
The narration is very well written. It matched the style well and fitted in perfectly. The descriptions of the visuals had just the right amount of detail, describing what was happening but also how the characters would sometimes stumble and be awkward or dazed so that you could visualise what was happening when there was no audio.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listened to a lot of audio books, but this is the first with original sound track and narration. The narrators were very good. Each episode was narrated by the actor who played the doctors assistant in that episode. It was interesting to hear short interviews from the narrators. I liked hearing the reminiscing and how they marvelled at how they were more famous now than when the show was filmed - more fan mail, and getting invited to events.
