Old-school fun rendered with love. Excellent!

Perfectly captures the Pertwee Doctor Who Era. Narrator a little cheesy but great fun overall.

Wonderful

Transported back to the wonderful Peetwee era. Thrills, spills and mysterious goings on in a quaint English village form the perfect backdrop for an adventure with The Third Doctor, Jo and UNIT.

A smile is not always to be trusted...

An excellent tale well told. Nostalgic yet upto date this story has lots of thrills and tension; it is really well performed all adding to this atmospheric scffi children's (old and young) horror.

Classic 3rd Doctor yarn

If you could sum up Doctor Who: The Last of the Gaderene in three words, what would they be?

Gatiss Writes Who!

What other book might you compare Doctor Who: The Last of the Gaderene to, and why?

Harvest of Time, mostly because they are both classic 3rd doctor stories written from a modern perspective but faithful to classic who

Have you listened to any of Richard Franklin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the first time i've heard him. I wouldn't say he was a 100% fit for the job but he evoked the character of 70's who very well

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Maybe

Any additional comments?

I recommend this and harvest of time to any 3rd Doctor fan

Best Dr Who Audio Book

I have enjoyed a number of the Dr Who story's available on audible. I tend to stick to story's that are earth based, this particular tale had real mystery, suspense and drama.
