The TARDIS lands in Paris in 1572 at the time of the massacre of the French Protestants at the hands of the Catholic Queen Mother, Catherine de Medici. Worryingly for the TARDIS crew, it appears that the hated Catholic dignitary the Abbot of Amboise is a dead ringer for the Doctor himself.... This is a four-part Doctor Who story from 1966, wiped from the BBC Archives, which exists on soundtrack only. Peter Purves supplies added narration to the story. The episodes have not been seen for more than thirty years, and given that they no longer exist in visual form, they are now audio exclusives. The Doctor is played by William Hartnell.More

Some Details Missing, But Overall- Average
Most of my friends are not Doctor Who fans. Those who are, are from the newest revival of the series. I would only recommend this to a die hard fans of the entire series.
This audiobook is taken from the audio track of the TV series with a narrator filling in a few details that are lost without video. A few more details would have made this story more complete. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed it, but I am glad I didn't spend a lot on it.
The cast performance was fine. It would have made more sense with better narration.
This question needs makes no sense sense the Doctor Who series has countless audio and paper books, comic books, it's own magazine and the longest running sci-fi series ever.
Die hard Whovian's, this audiobook is for you. Never heard of Doctor Who or not sure what the series is about...this isn't a good starting point.
History at its worst.
