Good Who

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.

Dr Who / Dr Why?

I am giving Dr Who Adventures in History a one star rating because zero stars was not a choice. This is terrible. Not bad taste, violent, racy....just bad. Boring, nearly impossible to follow and then when you do follow wish you hadn't. Don't waste your time or money. Use your free time more wisely. Learn a craft, read a chilhood favorite, but skip this book and I would assume the entire series.
