I read another review saying how horrible this audiobook is. I completely disagree. This isn't an audiobook in that somebody is reading a book. It is an actual sound recording of THREE lost Dr. Who episodes with linking narration on each to help to explain what is happening and for a Dr. Who fan this is a must. The telesnap reconstructions give me headache, this I can listen to my car or any place and get a feel for what the episode was like without the headache. On the plus side I'm saved the poor quality sets and am able to create my own. Until the video/film records of the lost episodes are found (if they ever are) this is so far the best way to enjoy them.

If you like Doctor Who, you need this bundle. Firstly, all 3 of these adventures are lost. These are amateur tape recordings of the show given the very best sound remastering and a linking narration from one of the show's companions. The format works very well with the narration being brief, to the point and quite charming. Also, your imagination probably paints a better picture than some of the sets did back in the day.
Secondly, despite all 3 of these adventures being historical, there's a great deal of variety. The Myth Makers takes an ironic look at legend and provides inspiration for the current interpretation of the Doctor.
Finally, all 3 of these tales see changes to the Tardis crew. There's the departure of Vicki, Dodo's debut and the arrival of Jamie. Wondeful classics at a bargain price.

A very enjoyable way to experience these mostly-missing stories. The occasional narration helps in places where dialogue is scarce or acrions unclear.
I have always loved the Dr. Who stories, including the early ones, of which I have a number in my DVD collection. But divorced from the low-budget, but naively charming vision, this very early collection just does not hold sufficient charm to succeed. It may work for the most enthusiastic of fans for the early Doctor, but I am afraid that appeal will be limited.
