I've been accumulating the Doctor Who stories read by David Tennant, and this is the best I've listened to so far. Loved the plot and the usual twists as well as Tennant's voicing of Rose and Mickey and the other characters. Now if they'd just have made this into a TV episode!!
This is the first Doctor Who audiobook I've listened to with David Tennant narrating. He's really great, using his Scottish accent for the narrative parts to differentiate from the Doctor's dialog, and he does a very good job of Donna Noble's speech patterns, though he can't quite get her voice.
The story is fascinating, would have been a great TV episode, with a just-right mixture of narrative and action.
I love these little audio novellas, and the main members of the Torchwood team have read most of them. This is the 2nd I've listened to that is read by Kai Owen, who plays Rhys (Gwen's husband) on the show. Kai does a very good job with these, and he does different voices for the characters, even voicing Captain Jack Harkness without a British accent. I will be looking forward to more books, Torchwood-themed or not, read by Mr Owen.
The story itself is pretty good, an interesting take on the things that may be hanging around in the deep corners of a traditional old department store.
I am an old-time fan of the Doctor Who (DW) series. My tastes with DW have developed from loving the old series (Doctors 1 to 8) to really loving the new fast paced series (currently Doctors 9 to 11).
I was a bit concerned when buying this audiobook that it would a bit slower-paced then my new tastes with DW, however I was proven wrong. This is my favourite DW audiobook yet. The Wheel of Ice is a fresh, gripping and fun story. David's accent is quite enjoyable and brings something new to the DW audiobooks. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would like to hear more from this author and narrator.
