The classic British science fiction series is wonderfully recaptured with this latest tale. It's well produced, with a fantastic musical score that echoes the glory days of the series and a large cast of remarkable actors who bring a theatrical presence to the production. Close your eyes, and you'll swear this story is actually an episode of the television series. In truth, it partly is--the acting and recording of an original episode (combined with the scoring) are expertly mixed with the well-read narration of Frazer Hines. The result is a compelling episode that excels on many levels, even if you weren't a fan of the BBC series to begin with. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
