A good a good audio version of the showMarch 25 2013

When the latest Mars Probe (number 7), returns to Earth in radio silence, Recovery 7 is sent up to collect it. But, the (third) Doctor soon realizes that something is wrong, and he and Liz Shaw and the Brigadier set off to find out just what is happening. However, it soon becomes clear that someone with a lot of power in the British government is playing a game of their own, stealing the astronauts, and beginning a wave of crime for unknown purposes. Now the Doctor must foil the machinations of his unseen foes, and find out just what is going on in outer space.
Overall, I found this to be a pretty good episode. I agree with those who say the story drags at time, especially at the time when the Doctor is heading off to space. Also, I really could not understand why the Brigadier could never get a handle on the security angle, even at his own headquarters!
Nonetheless, this is a good audio version of the show - the BBC took the soundtrack and glued it together with narration provided by Caroline John (who played Liz Shaw!) to let you know what you are missing by not seeing it. I really liked hearing the Doctor and Liz and the Brigadier again, and Caroline John did do a great job as the narrator. Plus, the additional interview with Ms. John is very good.
Yeah, this is a very good audiobook, one that I am very glad I listened to. Long live the Doctor!
