I Love Doctor Who. I especially love the Doctor and Rose together but this audiobook was so hard to listen to. It was entirely due to the reader. He lacked entirely the enthusiasm the Doctor always has in his voice. He would have been more suited for something depressing.
I've never listened to his other performances, but he did an excellent job portraying the Doctor's and Rose's mannerisms. I always prefer David Tennant's narration for the 10th Doctor, of course, but Don Warrington is probably my new second favorite.
Excellent mystery, a variety of aliens, Rose and the Doctor with their playful banter and dedication to each other -- pretty much everything a 10th Doctor fan wants. ;) Stephen Cole perfectly captures the Doctor - his way of speaking and thinking - and Don Warrington brings him to life. Highly recommend this one :)
"Not a good narrator"
I like the works of Stephen Cole in general, but I would not willingly listen to another work narrated by Don Warrington.
I love the Doctor Who stories, they are fun, exciting and usually a great listen. This one story might be good, but it should be redone by another narrator. Tennant would be great!
The voice of the narrator is screeching, annoying, and lacking the characteristic life of the Doctor and Rose. It's just annoying to listen to, and I would rather read the book than listen to this.
I couldn't really pay much attention to the story, as I just wanted it to finish.
Judging by the other works of Stephen Cole, this is probably a good story on the whole, but it doesn't shine through the poor narrating. Not all the actors of Doctor Who are great narrators, and it's unfortunate that this wasn't picked up before the whole story was narrated and the cd produced.
