Excellent collection narrated by the real actors!

Narrated by the actual actors playing the various Doctors over the years, this is a beautiful and engaging collection of short stories. The narration by the actors is without flaw.

A very mixed bag

Would you believe that this collection of Dr Wo stories takes a sudden turn for the better when Colin Baker turns up?
Oh sweet irony!
The first two stories are pretty uninspired TV adaptations read by Jon Pertwee and Peter Davison. Then Colin Baker reads one of the best Cyber Man stories ever and things really get going.
Along with the TV adaptations there are short stories that sound like they were commissioned as audio books. Readers range from Dr's past, to assistants to apparently random actor who mostly turn in good if uninspiring performances.
As you might expect from a TV series of such varied heritage as Dr Who, some of the stories are gripping adventure sci fi at it's best, some are plain old dumb 'run from the monster' hi-jinkery, some are apparently random and a bit dull (especially one about the Dr's train set coming to life).
Overall there are enough good & well told stories here to make it worthwhile, but it is far from essential listening and doesn't deserve a place near the top of your wish list until you've worked your way through the 5 star sci fi titles availible on audible.

Slow start, but it does improve.

Any additional comments?

Worth the struggle.
My review may be coloured by the fact that Jon Pertwee was always my least favourite Doctor, but he seems bored during this reading. The very definition of phoning it in. Baker adds a degree of energy and interest to the later stories.
