The Edge of Destruction is one of my favorite stories of the First Doctor era and this novelization of it... was fine. I do prefer Target novelizations that add to and fill out stories a bit more, like the modern series ones do. This was a pretty beat for beat transcription with maybe an extra scene or so of exploring the TARDIS but nothing that added materially to the narrative.

Part of the Doctor Who range from Big Finish, The Lost Stories (2009-2013, revived 2019) are audio adaptions of scripts that were generally considered pretty good, but for some reason never made it to production. The Masters of Luxor is a sci-fi story that was originally intended to be the second story of the First Doctor. It was eventually replaced by The Daleks, and the rest is history. It does share some themes with the Daleks, not least a dead planet, inhabited only by robotic creatures, but is much more philosophical, dealing with an android (The Perfect One) who wants to be human.

This version has been adapted for audiobook, rather than a full cast drama, with Carole Ann Ford (original Susan) and William Russell (original Ian) providing the dialogue and narration for their own characters, as well as for The Doctor and Barbara. And doing a brilliant job of the different pitches of voice. They are joined by Joseph Kloska, who plays the Perfect One, Tabon, and the various androids (who are all somewhat related anyway). Nigel Robinson has adapted Anthony Coburn's original script to an audiobook format, and in doing so has removed some of the religious content (which probably would have been removed from the original anyway, had it gone to production). He has also moved it from its early first season slot to some point prior to Susan's departure, but after [a:Moris Farhi|96332|Moris Farhi|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1475486803p2/96332.jpg]'s [b:Doctor Who: Farewell, Great Macedon|24073629|Doctor Who Farewell, Great Macedon|Moris Farhi|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1419523809l/24073629._SX50_.jpg|62696586], an earlier release in the Lost Stories. Anthony Coburn's complete original script was published back in the 90s as part of the short-lived Titan series, Doctor Who: The Scripts [b:The Masters of Luxor|800028|The Masters of Luxor|Anthony Coburn|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1207842539l/800028._SY75_.jpg|785993].

A somewhat dated story, but a really superb adaptation.

Set before a pair of of overly curious teachers stumble into the TARDIS, this story finds Susan and the Doctor dealing with unknown adversaries using radio waves to attack people.
