With the Doctor more associated with other worlds, future societies and daleks, the historial stories are often sadly overlooked.
This one is an absolute gem. Paying reverent tribute to the Greeky myths, this one has a lot to recommend: humour, drama and emotion. You don't need to know your Illiad or your Shakespeare but if you do, you'll delight in the way the writers have fleshed out the characters and story, making this a more historical interpretation of legend.
Best of all, this audio version flows nicely in the mind, with the narration covering everything nicely without affecting the pace or leaving the listener confused.
Also, given the change to the Tardis' line-up, this is an essential story for all Doctor Who fans. And as nothing but a few paltry clips survive, it's this or the novelisation.
