Thoroughly Enjoyable

The story is interesting and meaty. Tom Baker provides a superb reading with excellent diction and a melodic voice. The story is narrated in a calm and smooth manner while characters are portrayed with excellent yet subdued acting. There is incidental music and sound effects throughout that do add to the atmosphere of the story. The music was a bit repetitive but still added to the dramatic scenes. After listening to this book I enjoyed going back and watching the TV serial of this story.

Takes me back to High School

If you could sum up Doctor Who and the Pyramids of Mars in three words, what would they be?

I remember the show and Tom's narration brought it all back.

What did you like best about this story?

It was Tom Baker's narration made it really work for me.

Which scene was your favorite?

Sorry, no specific sean. The description regarding how they escaped the force field was interesting. The book did better than what I would remember from the original shows.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Doctor "Sara, your keep forgetting, I'm not human"

Any additional comments?

It was fun and unlike what I typically purchase. My son will enjoy this when he finally slows down enough to listen.

His best narrated by the best!

What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who and the Pyramids of Mars the most enjoyable?

What more could you ask for? The legendary Tom Baker narrating the novelisation of his most popular story. Tom's unique voice puts you right in the story and you can picture yourself watching it all over again. Terrance Dicks is at his usual best to recreate the story both faithfully and vividly.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I must admit that I loved the 'alternative time' scene showing what would happen if the Doctor and Sarah decided to up and leave before they stopped Sutekh

Any additional comments?

This is definitely one of the best stories and to have it read to you by the best Doctor (for me anyway) certainly makes it a fantastic experience. Thoroughly recommended!
