Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No, I wouldn't recommend it. The story just will not die... it goes on and on and on even though you *know* exactly how it's going to end before the book is halfway read.
Has Doctor Who and the War Games turned you off from other books in this genre?
Not a chance. One bad apple and all that
Which character – as performed by David Troughton – was your favorite?
He does Jon Pertwee *perfectly*
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Maybe. Some visual distraction might make the story better.
Any additional comments?
I've never watched, listened to, or read a Doctor Who episode where so many humans get killed, particularly by firearms, and most of them get at least two lines worth of description of their death. It makes the characters "throwaway" since you know they're all equally likely to take a bullet or get shot by a "stun gun" that is "set to kill mode" (Doesn't that just make the thing an ordinary gun that can be set to "stun" mode?)
I'm a huge fan of Doctor Who but this was the very first story where I could not wait for it to end after I had listened to the first half.
I forced myself to listen to the end just on the off chance there was a very clever plot twist that I was too thick to anticipate. Alas, if only I were that thick. The plot simply splattered on the ground exactly the way one expects of any other falling cow patty.

Loved the adaptation. David Troughton bringing his father's incarnation to lfe. I enjoyed reading the target novelisation when I was a ghild and was delighted that David Troughton had read the audio version. i found it easy to listen to and would recommend this audio to fans of old sixties who.
David Troughton did a magnificent job. Where some narrators come across as dull and disinterested, Troughton brings more life to an already wonderful story. 5/5 all the way.
