Classic Doctor Who at its best.

Great story by Bill Strutton . Great narration by William Russell, who played Ian on the show. He also gives some insight into the making of the story in the last 8 minutes of the audiobook. This book was also one of the earliest novelizations of a Doctor Who serial. It set the trend for all the future novelizations of Doctor Who stories to come. Good stuff.

A World of Insect Rule

Having this Dr Who adventure on VHS/DVD i found the teleplay noisy and the story some what disinteresting. But yet again i turn to audibles extensive library of Dr Who tv novelisations and wow i am captivated by the excellence pace of the piece, once again ably told by one time tv companion William Russell, who never seems to make the story dull. adding to his already reknown skill of character impersonation of the 1st doctor, his alien cfeatures are a sound to be believed. The whole story runs along nicely and at over 5hrs plus its advisable to take it in mangable chunks. 10/10.
