Publisher's Summary

Jon Culshaw reads this classic novelisation of Doctor Who's special 20th-anniversary TV adventure, featuring the Doctor in each of his first five incarnations.

Each one has been removed from his time-stream and - with one unfortunate exception - brought to the Death Zone on Gallifrey. There, they - along with an array of their loyal former companions - encounter numerous deadly obstacles including Daleks, Cybermen, Yeti, the Master and a fiendish set of puzzles. Who is the ultimate enemy they must all unite to defeat?

Based on Terrance Dicks's epic TV adventure, first broadcast in 1983, The Five Doctors offers listeners a chance to turn the clock back and meet some old friends - and some old enemies.

Culshaw is excellent in this faithful recreation

Very enjoyable. Faithfully recreating the atmosphere of the story, Jon Culshaw's reading is excellent, his vocals capturing the performances of the leads, with particularly fine turns as Troughton and Pertwee Doctors.

Nostalgic bliss...

I have very fond memories reading this as a child, specifically between films (with a torch 😅), at a ABC cinema Star Trek movie marathon, munching on egg sandwiches. Ha ha context is everything! This is a lovely reading by Jon Culshaw - getting all the Doctors just right, and bringing a lovely hint of menace to both The Master and Borusa. Nick Briggs does a sterling job as always on Dalek/Cyberman duties, and the sound effects and atmosphere are just right. If you are in need of a nostalgic hit this is perfect. 10/10

the best audiobook ever

I have never had as much fun from an audiobook ever! as a fan, I've known the story for years, but hearing Jon Culshaw play all the parts brilliantly (the Doctors are so good, I can forgive his Tegan!) is an absolute joy. Culshaw is the perfect reader for this yarn, and the sound effects and background music all add to the quality of this product. Wonderful job! now I hope he tackles the Three Doctors too
