Publisher's Summary

Five classic novelisations of exciting TV adventures set on distant planets!

In The Sensorites, the First Doctor is forced into an uneasy alliance with a race of telepathic creatures from the Sense-Sphere. In Doctor Who and the Space War, the Third Doctor finds that a full-scale war between Earth and the planet Draconia seems inevitable. In Doctor Who and the Planet of the Daleks, the Third Doctor and Jo discover a vast army of Daleks waiting to mobilise and conquer on the planet Spiridon. In Doctor Who and the Ribos Operation, the Fourth Doctor, Romana and K9 embark on a quest for the first missing segment of the Key to Time, and in The Androids of Tara they become entangled in the politics of a planet on which androids are a vital commodity.

Read by William Russell, Geoffrey Beevers, Mark Gatiss and John Leeson. 

Each purchase is accompanied by a PDF booklet featuring full cast and credits, chapter-by-chapter navigation and sleeve notes for each book by David J. Howe.

Two Key to Time Stories for the price of one.

One can purchase these titles as they are released at full price, or wait a few years for a Collection and get five Doctor Who stories for one credit. Already have some of these on CD, but as I've purchased three of the Key to Time stories via Audible, might as well get the other two and have the complete set in my Audible Library. Both the Ribos Operation and Androids of Tara are available as individual purchases, but as it has been a few years they now exist in a Collection which allows me to buy both for a single credit with three other titles as a bonus. FYI: There was at one point a 2022 release scheduled for the Androids of Tara that seemed identical to the 2012 version, but after a few weeks it vanished from the Pre-Order lists.

Some of the best stories in the Who universe :)

I was transported to so many worlds, narrated by animated voices, rich in expression. Captivating from beginning to end. Recommend these Who-tales most highly as a cross-section of the classic stories. Wonderful.

stirred many memories, very enjoyable. Struggled a bit with Ribos but I'll re listen when I'm in the right frame.

boring stories

an excellent set of narrators, let down by the mundane nature of most of the stories
