Doctor Who: The Nemonite Invasion | [David Roden]

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. But something else has got inside the War Tunnels, a parasitic Nemonite from the crashed sphere. Its aim is to possess all humans and spawn millions of young.

The Doctor and Donna must fight for their lives in order to save both Operation Dynamo and the world at large ...

    "It rocks!"

    This is like a lost episode for season 4. The Nemonite Invasion has it all. Besides being an interesting story, with lots of well developed characters, it is decidedly creepy and suspenseful. Catherine Tate can really bring any character to life --especially the Doctor. Donna is quirky as usual. The Doctor's personality is spot on -- I could imagine it all in my mind. Without giving away the plot, the story flows through a series of events that will make you laugh, shiver, and maybe even cry.

    It's a must read, my favorite of all things Dr. Who.

    "Ok Story, Great Narration in this Audio-Exclusive"

    I'm not a huge fan of this time period in Doctor Who stories; it's too recent to be a rare Doctor Who historical, has too much grit and grime of war, but is not yet futuristic enough to have a lot of science fiction. Old earth technology and aliens mix it up. So I didn't have huge hopes going into this story.

    The story itself was better than I was hoping, and kept my attention pretty well. A good part of that, however, has to be credited to Catherine Tate (Donna Noble)and her reading. She does a great job of bringing the story to life, and helping the story to flow without being jarring or breaking. It was also nice to have a new series companion for the Doctor that wasn't (and obviously wasn't) head-over-heels in love with him.

    If you enjoy WWII, submarines, recent history, war and the Doctor, you'll likely enjoy this audio. If you liked the setting and feel of The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, you'll likely enjoy this audio. If you want to have a complete collection of Doctor Who stories, you probably want this audio. If Donna Noble is your favorite companion, you probably want this audio. If you enjoy spaceships, time travel paradoxes, and other planets, you might want to try another story before you catch this one.

    "Great narrator hampered by so-so story...."
    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.

    "First one I haven't liked"

    I've read and listened to quite a few 10th Doctor stories now and all of them were enjoyable to some extent. Until this one. This story was just too stupid. The alien menace was fine, but the additional plot elements concerning one of the British officers and Donna's instant romance (which are two separate implausible and uninteresting plot elements) were extremely annoying. And the speech the Doctor delivers to Donna at the end was out of character and cringe-inducing. There were no fun "Doctor moments" to make this worthwhile. I'm giving it two stars instead of one because it is a 10th Doctor Adventure and I'm determined to experience all of them.

    "Not bad for a Dr. Who Book"

    Most of the doctor who books are god-awful. This story line, however, is somewhat interesting and catherine tate is the reader which is such a treat to listen to her play Donna in the book.

    "Stunning - terrific story, very well read"

    A classic Doctor Who story set in Earth's past with added alien threat. If I had to choose I might just make this my favourite Who audiobook ever - Catherine Tate is as consummately skilled as David Tennant at portraying various characters with different voices, but probably what makes this one stand out is that she herself is narrating a story that is framed from Donna's perspective. Plus - it's a cracker! Make this your next download, you won't regret it.
