    "The Twelve Doctors."
    Would you listen to Doctor Who: 12 Doctors 12 Stories again? Why?

    Yes. Because I'm indicted to all things Doctor Who.


    What other book might you compare Doctor Who: 12 Doctors 12 Stories to and why?

    Any great omnibus of some of my favorite Sci-fi show.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I wish more former companions could of done more of the narrations, or better still some of the former Doctors.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of the stories were great, some were bad. But I enjoyed listing to all of then.


    Any additional comments?

    The only stories I didn't like we're the stories concerning the first and fifth Doctors. The rest of the stories were wonderful.

    "Excellent"

    Great adaptation of a book of short stories from the companions' point of view. Twelve stories for 12 Doctors for fans of the entire run, or newer fans wanting a glimpse of the "whole." Some stories are better than others, but all are a good "read."

    "Some good, some not so good"

    12 stories, 12 authors, 12 narrators. Hard to rate them as a group. Enjoyable listen, on the whole. A couple of mediocre stories and narrators, but several good ones, too.

    "Love the various stories"

    As I said, good variety, but could use some of the theme song. however it was a good offering of tales and the readers got the vocal mannerisms down to a tea. all you need was the theme songs from each generation's doctor between the tales.

    Story
    "I thought this might be a risk"

    I really wasn't sure if I would enjoy Doctor Who in book form, or in audiobook, more specifically. I also wasn't familiar with the earlier doctors and was afraid their stories might not resonate for me.

    I'm happy to say I was pleasantly surprised throughout. I made myself put at least a say between stories, and I recommend that, because it did help separate the individual stories and doctors. But yes, there was the same feeling of wonder, magic, and exhilaration as the show provides. (How strange to be relieved that a book lives up to screen!)

    11 is my favorite doctor, and I was waiting to savor that story, but in truth, I think 10 was the truest to character. 12 was pretty spot-on too, with the sense that Capaldi carries of having some deep secret to forgive or be forgiven for.

    All in all, there wasn't a single story I felt cheated by or disappointed in. They are 12 excellent stories, and I'll be looking for more of the Doctor Who audiobooks.

    Story
    "Good diversion"

    As a way of re-experiencing the many Doctors, the book is great. As an introduction to the Doctor Who universe, I think it's less effective: a Doctor Who novitiate would be better served, in my opinion, by focusing first on a few adventures involving a single Doctor before branching out.

    The stories here are somewhat uneven, as are the narrators. The ones that were most resonant for me were the ones for the 11th and 12th Doctors (stories by Neil Gaiman and Holly Black). My least favorite was the one for the first Doctor: I just can't picture William Hartnell with a prosthetic hand. Still, if you're already a Doctor Who fan and want to spend 12 hours being entertained, this will fit the bill nicely.

    "Very good overall"

    I really enjoyed this collection. I only wish I had been able to download this before I had downloaded a couple of the individual stories. The third Doctor's story was fairly boring, though that was mainly because the narrator was pretty one-note. There was absolutely no difference between any of the voices. Jo Grant and the Doctor should not sound the same by any means. Also, the way it was read had absolutely no emotion whatsoever. They might have been discussing what to have for dinner. The others were pretty good though; some superb, others ok.

    "A fun Doctor Who sampler"
    What did you love best about Doctor Who: 12 Doctors 12 Stories?

    Each story caught the personality of each of the doctors very well and each short story is well written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Doctor.... what a silly question. Each regeneration of the Doctor is well represented and feels like the adventures belong wedged in between episodes of the show.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I liked all of the narrators and they all did quality work, however, I feel I need to give Nicholas Briggs special mention. His story worked so wonderfully with his voice and narration style that is was just a treat to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would try, but it was too long for such a thing.


    Any additional comments?

    Very fun and recommended for anyone wanting to explore Doctor beyond the version they're familiar with.

    Very cleverly some of the stories are made extra "realistic" by actually being put in a context with what you've seen on tv
