Good combination

Excellent stories and narrated by several Stars of the series. A very long set so presents excellent value. If you are a fan of the earlier era then I would certainly recommend it.

Fun except last story.

All of the stories are great except “Earth Shock”. “Earth Shock” was a huge disappointment in the Doctor Who cannon. It was when the Doctor first let one of his companions die.

Let down by a truly terrible Scottish accent attempt by the narrator. Really bad.

Great Cybermen stories

With the dated effects of the old episodes, this may be the best way to enjoy the stories. There are occasional sound effects which enhance each story without being intrusive. The cybermen voices are particularly good.

I rated these books 4 stars overall. I really enjoyed the three cybermen stories and would rate them about 4.5 - 5 stars but the other two stories involving the Yeti and Ice Warriors slightly less at 3 stars.

Of the narrators, Peter Davison and Michael Kilgarrif stood out. Hopefully there will be a Dalek collection soon.
