I enjoyed this so much. Nicholas Briggs is a fantastic narrator (some of my favourite Doctor who audio books are done by him) and he does Christopher Ecclestone so well. It was nice to have a 9th doctor audiobook. The story is really good- like a murder mystery.
I buy these audio books for myself and my kids. I have to say that I don't know if my kids will enjoy this story as much, but I loved it. The angels are back, but in a new way. I really wanted to find out what would happen next, and "couldn't put it down". Clare Corbett does a really good job narrating. I will be listening to this one again.
As an adult, I love the Doctor Who audio books, even though they say they are aimed at kids. This one, with badger headed creatures some how seemed more child like. Freema Agyeman also lacks the ability to do the many different voices that other narrators are capable of. She does a decent 10th doctor though.
I completely disagree with another reader who wrote that there are no great stories in this collection. I was interested in all of them, but for me, the standouts are the stories about Doctors 1, 5, 9 and 11. The story about Doctor 5, "Tip of the Tongue" reminded me of "The Twilight Zone" in its exploration of social issues. It is just really good science fiction. With the story about The first Doctor, we get to see him in action before he had human companions. The 9th Doctor story is about a particularly important instant of time for that Doctor and an exploration in an interesting way of what makes a good companion. And the 11th Doctor story is by Neil Gaiman! What more can anyone ask for? It is funny, terrifying and it brings Amy back with several satisfying references to the show for fans.
