    23 November, 1963. It is the day after John F. Kennedy's assassination - and the faces of the dead are everywhere. PC Reg Cranfield sees his late father in the mists along Totter's Lane. Reporter Mae Callon sees her grandmother in a coffee stain on her desk. FBI Special Agent Warren Skeet finds his long-dead partner staring back at him from raindrops on a window pane. Then the faces begin to talk, and scream... and push through into our world.

    Story

    I couldn't even be bothered finishing this one. I have purchased over 70 doctor who audios and this was the worst one ever. Francis Barber is not a good narrator...her American accent is hideous- involves shouting and really OTT accent. Story is boring and repetitive. The writer seems to want to take the Doctor and Clara's relationship somewhere other than what is in the TV series (constant bickering, and I wanted to slap Clara) Waste of money. Don't do it.

    ‘My watch is running backwards.’ Colorado, 1981. The Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in Appletown - an idyllic village in the remote American desert where the townsfolk go peacefully about their suburban routines. But when two more strangers arrive, things begin to change. The first is a mad scientist - whose warnings are cut short by an untimely and brutal death. The second is the Doctor... As death falls from the sky, the Doctor is trapped. The TARDIS is damaged, and the Doctor finds he is living backwards through time.

    Story

    A shame, as I like any of the doctor who audios narrated by nicholas briggs, but this was just a really bad story. It skipped around everywhere and barely made any sense. I found I really didn't care about any of the characters, and the companions seemed like an after thought. I have bought one other oli smith story which I didn't like either. I must remember to give him a miss next time.

    The past is like a foreign country: nice to visit, but you really wouldn’t want to live there. In 2003, Rebecca Whitaker died in a road accident. Her husband, Mark, is still grieving. He receives a battered envelope, posted eight years ago, containing a set of instructions with a simple message: "You can save her." As Mark is given the chance to save Rebecca, it’s up to the Doctor, Amy, and Rory to save the whole world. Because this time the Weeping Angels are using history itself as a weapon.

    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.

    Stuart Milligan reads this thrilling adventure featuring the Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack. The Novrosk Peninsula: the Soviet naval base has been abandoned, the nuclear submarines are rusting and rotting. Cold, isolated, forgotten.Until the Russian Special Forces arrive - and discover that the Doctor and his companions are here too. But there is something else in Novrosk. Something that pre-dates even the stone circle on the cliff top. Something that is at last waking, hunting, killing....

    I'm sorry, but Doctor who is ENGLISH. Having someone doing the most APPALLINGLY bad English accent for both Rose and The Doctor DOES NOT WORK!!!!! I have only listened for 10 minutes and I really don't know if I can be bothered listening to the rest.

    In 1920s London, the Doctor and Rose find themselves caught up in the hunt for a mysterious murderer. But not everyone or everything is what they seem. Secrets lie behind locked doors and inhuman killers roam the streets. Who is the Painted Lady and why is she so interested in the Doctor? How can a cat return from the dead? Can anyone be trusted to tell or even to know the truth?

    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.

And yet he appears to them as a ghostly apparition, begging to be saved from the coming feast... the feast of the drowned. As the dead crew haunt loved ones all over London, the Doctor and Rose are drawn into a chilling mystery.

    David Tennant at his best; lots of voices for him to do. This is a great story, and DT knows how to bring it to life.

    The Doctor's been everywhere and everywhen in the whole of the universe and seems to know all the answers. But ask him what happened to the Starship Brilliant and he hasn't the first idea. Did it fall into a sun or black hole? Was it shot down in the first moments of the galactic war? And what's this about a secret experimental drive?

    Jeff says: "Interesting Story And A Great Performance, But..."
    "More for kids"
    Overall

    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.

    Donna Noble is back home in London, catching up withher family and generally giving them all the gossip about her journeys. Her grandfather is especially overjoyed - he's discovered a new star and had it named after him. He takes the Doctor, as his special guest, to the naming ceremony. But the Doctor is suspicious about some of the other changes hecan see in the Earth's heavens. Particularly that bright star, right there. No, not that one, that one, there, on the left...

    Andrew says: "Beautiful Chaos, beautiful book"
    "Bernard's Doctor lets down this story"
    Overall

    This was a really interesting story, but I found it really hard to listen to Bernard Cribbins' portrayal of the 10th doctor. He totally misses the boat on the voice. The story is worth listening to, though.

    An exciting adventure for the 10th Doctor, read by Nicholas Briggs. Elvis the King Spaceport has grown into the sprawling city-state of New Memphis - an urban jungle, where organized crime is rife. But the launch of the new Terminal 13 hasn't been as smooth as expected. When the Doctor arrives, he finds the whole terminal locked down! The notorious Invisible Assassin is at work again, and the Judoon troopers sent to catch him will stop at nothing to complete their mission.

    Justin says: "Judoon troopers rock!"
    "An interesting addition to the Doctor Who stories"
    Overall

    For those who know the Judoon episodes, this was thoroughly enjoyable. Nicholas Briggs does the Judoon voices on the TV shows, but is also able to totally capture the essence of David Tennant's 10th doctor.

    Hiccup was a Viking hero - dashing, brave and ever so clever. But even Viking heroes have to begin somewhere. In this riproaring adventure he recounts his early days - when he still had a lot to learn about swordfights, shipwrecks, and homicidal dragons.

    David Tennant brings these enthralling stories to life brilliantly! Both my 10 year old and I were captured by this story. The stories are fantastic, but David Tennant makes them a joy to listen to.
