Let’s start things off on a positive note. Solaris (2007) and The Time Machine (2009) are both enjoyable stories dramatised by the BBC. The others not so much.
Frankenstein (1994) is fine, but I’ve already heard the adaptation by Big Finish which is also available on Audible and is far superior (starring Arthur Darvill). Would have enjoyed this production more if I hadn’t heard anything to compare it against.
Same issue with The Lost World (1975). I’ve already got the BBC’s more recent production (2011) and it is much better. Starring David Robb
R.U.R., Rossum’s Universal Robots (1989). There is a good story hidden there, but it is terribly dated. Especially the portrayal of the lead female, Helena Glory. Was glad when it ended. Won’t be listening to it again. Ever.
Previously these five dramatisations were available separately so although I really enjoyed only two of them, for me at least, it still seems good value. Looking forward to reading other reviews of R.U.R.. Do others agree, is it really as bad as I thought it was?
Overall 3-1/2 stars
