For a story of that kind on DOCTOR WHO, it wasn't as bad as others made it out to be. Sure, the sets and some of the acting was campy (Especially from Joseph Hurst. who later hammed it up in the James Bond film, DIAMONDS ARE FORVER). but when listening to the audio restoration by the incomparable Mark Ayres, one can imagine, as did Anneke Wills, aka Polly, who narrates this presentation, what Atlantis could have looked like if the show actually had a budget. The sound, originally from an off-air recording by Graham Strong, who around 17 or so when he recorded this and others by hooking a wire into the telly itself, is excellent! A plus is that it marks Fraser Hines (his second appearance) first story as a companion after originally being introduced as a one-off character in the previous story, "The Highlanders, which is sadly still lost, save for the audio. For me, it was fun to listen to..
nice entry in Dr.Who. steady performance by everyone. Polly is strong presence in story. well done. recommend this book to everyone.
With the BBC destroying the video recordings of most of the Troughton era it's refreshing to know that some can still be enjoyed on audio. An exiting episode with your imagination taking you further on a journey than perhaps the TV episode could.
