    For a few moments this afternoon, it rained on the moon...' An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe it's a publicity stunt. A photo shows a well-dressed woman in a red coat lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon - beside her beloved dog 'Poochie'. Maybe it's a hoax. But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on Earth.

    Overall

    It was an okay story. It seemed to borrow a little too much from some of the old D.W. stories in some places. Without giving too much away the underlying US military conspiracy that forms the basis for the story smacks of severe lack of reality. And the placement in the story in the timeline of D.W. doesn't make a ton of sense either. However, overall it does stand alone as a decent story.

    Oh, and the "Texas Accent" was brutal. Thank goodness it wasn't throughout the whole story. Just be ready for it…

    Patrick K. O'Donnell has made a career of uncovering the hidden history of World War II by tracking down and interviewing its most elite troops: the Rangers, Airborne, Marines, and First Special Service Force, forerunners to Americas's Special Forces.

    Sean says: "Vet accounts = 5 stars; Narrator = 1 star"
    "Great idea - terribly executed."
    Overall

    Great idea - terribly executed. It is very repetitive covering the same ground two and sometimes three times. Also the intro says it is for Audible kids - the graphic descriptions of events within the stories being told by veterans is NOT something kids should be hearing in this way.
