Publisher's Summary

For the first time on audio, this is an unabridged reading of a classic Doctor Who novelisation, based on a serial from the original TV series.

Why do so many spaceships crash land on Karn, a bleak, lonely and seemingly deserted planet? Are they doomed by the mysterious powers of the strange, black-robed Sisterhood, jealously guarding their secret of eternal life? Or does the mad Dr Solon, for some evil purpose of his own, need the bodies of the victims - and more especially, the body of Doctor Who?

Doctor, doctor

Every time I see an audible book read by Tom Baker, I snatch it up. Here Baker reads and voices his most famous character, the floppy hatted, long scarfed, curly haired Fourth Doctor. Written by Terrance Dicks, this story has many of he same themes as many Doctor Who stories of the time (megalomaniac trying to take over the universe) but Dicks' writing is so taut and well-paced that you tend to overlook the tropes. Fun listen especially with Baker's fantastic range of voices

Not An Audio Drama

It's a wonderfully read story from a classic Who tale but I was hoping for an audio drama with the actual characters from the story.

Vintage Doctor Who: a spine-chilling listen!

The classic TV version of the Morbius story is an homage to Hammer horror - the Doctor does Frankenstein, effectively. It’s brilliant thanks to Tom Baker, who narrates the audiobook and voices Morbius, to chilling effect. It’s a macabre tale, cleverly constructed, short but compelling. And it’s the subject of a forthcoming Backlisted podcast (about old books).

Excellent version of classic adventure.

The only thing that grates a little is the pronunciation of "Solon" as "Sewlon". Other to that, excellent!

Snooze

Although I know this story well - I love to listen to Tom Baker - I find him so relaxing that I just drift off.....
Seriously good listen and jolly well written.
