Well, this one is a bit of a mixed bag, collecting three readings of abridged novelizations of television stories (Curse of Peladon, Attack of the Cybermen, and Kinda) plus readings of selected short stories from two short story collections (Short Trips and Out of the Darkness) on one MP3 CD.

Curse of Peladon is probably my favorite of the three novelizations. I have only dim memories of the TV story, and I suspect that creatures like Alpha Centauri and Aggeddor are more impressive in my imagina

I really enjoyed this collection. Not only are there all star narrators reading these in the audio version (former Doctors and companions) but there are some great stories to be found. Model Trains is my favourite of the lot.

This is a very uneven collection of Who stories. Some I loved, others I didn't think were all that great. Still - Who fun!

Recommends it for: Any Doctor Who or BBC science fiction follower
In the end, I could only rate this as 'OK'. As I mentioned in a status update, some of the stories do not translate well to a spoken format without the support of the visual references of the TV series, BBC props and all. I was really disappointed to find that the final stories were not original Doctor stories at all but fan fiction of somewhat dubious quality and relevance to actual Doctor stories...a bit of a rip-off really...not really an Audible product that I could recommend to any but the ...more

Overall, this was a good collection of stories, but there were a couple I could do without.

I picked this up 1) because I wanted to get a better sense of the classic Doctors, and 2) because I had a coupon. It filled those objectives perfectly! Just a few short stories starring the doctor and his companions, some of which were narrated by the Third and Sixth Doctors. What fun!

It was good, but since I am not too familiar with these doctors it didn't appeal to me as much as it might have if I were more familiar with them, and their companions of course.
