  • Doctor Who: The Nemonite Invasion

    When the sky rips open somewhere over Dover, two objects hurtle out of the Vortex and crash-land in the sea. One is the TARDIS, out of control and freefalling - but the other, a mysterious crystalline sphere, is far more sinister... The Doctor and Donna are rescued and taken to a secret command centre in the Dover cliffs. It's May 1940, and Vice-Admiral Ramsey is about to finalise one of the most daring plans of the Second World War: Operation Dynamo.

    Any additional comments?

    The story was haphazard, rife with hyperbole, and contained an absolutely unnecessary love-interest secondary story for Donna which, frankly, ruined the entire thing for me. The one redeeming element of the whole thing was Catherin Tate's performance because she is a brilliant character actress.

    Listen for her deft usage of accent and characterization. The story is pale by comparison.

  • Doctor Who: The Forever Trap

    Story
    (110)

    When the TARDIS is invaded by a holographic marketing scam, the Doctor and Donna find themselves trapped on the Edifice, a purpose-built complex of luxury apartments in space. Their new environs leave much to be desired: millions of beings from across the Universe have been gathered to live side by side in similar apartments. Instead of creating neighbourly affection, it's led to terrible battles being waged in the corridors and on the stairwells.

    What does Catherine Tate bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    If it weren't for Catherine Tate narrating this particular story, I wouldn't have been laughing out loud in my car on Highway 80 on my long commute home. Believe me, that alone changes lives around here. :)

    Brilliant story read by brilliant woman. Who could ask for more?

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I think the performers did an excellent job with their characters and am looking forward to the rest of the books.
