Love the 4th Doctor titles. Will enjoy the others!

A few years ago I purchased the 4th Doctor titles "Doctor Who and the Brain of Morbius" and "Doctor Who and the Leisure Hive" on CD. Now I can just stream them via my little Fire TV Pendant (with Audible App). In addition, this "collection" comes with the 3rd Doctor story "Curse of Peladon", which I recall seeing on various OTA television stations.

The other two titles are "The Zarbi" (1st Doctor) and "Greatest Show in the Galaxy" (7th Doctor). I know I've never seen the 1st Doctor episode, but oddly enough I can't recall seeing "Greatest Show", so I looked that one up and found it comes between "Silver Nemesis" and "Battlefield'. I recall seeing both of those episodes on PBS, so either I missed "Greatest Show" or my brain edited it out. Maybe on account of The Scary Clown. (Scary Clown! Scary Clown!)

This collection doesn't offer any new titles, it is merely a chance for fans to bulk-purchase multiple titles at a great price, or repurchase older purchases digitally as I have done.

All 3 downloads for this book start with 'The Web Planet' - hopefully someone can fix it.

The stories are fine and these collections are great value at 1 credit each. Just an issue with the downloads on this particular one.

Good but ruined by mucked-up recording

All three sections start with the same "chapter" - very annoying and ruins the flow of the stories

Wonderful Collection: excellent performances!

Wonderful stories told by excellent actors with sound effects that bring the whole stories alive.

For those of us who collected the original TARGET books back in the 70s and 80s (and still have them),
this the the BEST in Dr. Who listening pleasure. I've got all the collections and can't wait for the future ones to become

Great science fiction and great adventure.

A repeated listen.
