Doctor Who and the Pescatons is hard to classify by modern standards. The closest thing I could compare to is one of Big Finish's Companion Chronicles as the Doctor (Tom Baker) is narrating most of the story but is aided by Elizabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and Bill Mitchell as the Pescaton leader Zor. For most of the story, it's much more of a monster story than a true Doctor Who tale and some of the dialogue was silly such as when Sarah Jane Smith complains about the lack of government preparation for an invasion of sapient reptiles with skin made of steel.

The story is good for children who want slightly scared or adults nostalgic for one more Doctor and Sarah adventure. Tom Baker is a fantastic narrator and really puts a lot into this role. It's also great as a historical item as being the first original Doctor Who audio drama recorded outside of the series.
