My 1st, but certainly not last DW Audio!

The only Doctor Who CD I had bought before this was the soundtrack of 'The Daleks' Master Plan'. Granted, a great story, but unfortunately this epic deserves the visuals it will probably never have. As the video is gone, this novelisation reading is the next best thing, and by god it's good!
Peter Purves and Jean Marsh read the book expertly, with the former pulling off the action sequences superbly and the latter giving a chilling representation of the more dramatic chapters.
The other masterstroke of this audio is casting Nicholas Briggs to do the Dalek voices; it adds a great sense of realism to the piece.
Plaudits must also go to John Peel for novelising the story brilliantly - roll on 'The Mutation of Time'...
