    "Military Story"

    I liked this one for the most part. I didn't like the dramatic music playing in the background. I don't think it needed it, and it made it 10 times as creepy, especially since I usually listen at night. If you like to be super creeped out and a little grossed out, go ahead and listen.

    "David Tennant... the end"
    What did you love best about Doctor Who?

    This story is good on its own but David Tennant's performance is the icing on the cake! The Doctor and Donna are true to their characters. It's lovely to spend more time with them.!


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to this I added all of the Doctor/Donna stories to my queue and I have already listened to all of the stories narrated by David Tennant.

    Not only is his delivery perfect, but his portrayal of the different characters really brought the story to life.

    I do a lot of cross-country driving and commuting in traffic, so Audible has been an absolute godsend! Love "theater of the mind/voice!"

    Story
    "Several "driveway moments" with this one"
    What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who the most enjoyable?

    I listened to "Pest Control" on a cross-country drive from Denver to Chicago recently. Found myself repeatedly lingering at rest stops because I didn't want to disengage from the story long enough to turn off the player while I got back on the highway. I guess that says a lot about how engrossing the story, how spot-on the characterizations and how engating the narration were!


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

    Two points, the first of which is fairly obvious: The Doctor is being read by The Doctor! The second point being that David Tennant is as marvelous and consummate a voice actor as he is in film, on television and on the stage. It is clear from the amount of characterization he puts into each role he voices that he treats story narration with the same care and thoughtfulness that he puts into roles with visual as well as audio components.

    Craftsmanship, whether it is evidenced in handcrafts, stagecraft, wordsmithing, or any other art form is an instantly recognizable quality when it is there; and it is most definitely "there" in Mr. Tennant's masterful narration.


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

    Yes. And, happily, I did!

    "Fun!!"

    My first audiobook. I loved DT's performance; his characters were brilliant. I especially loved hearing him "do" Donna. A very good Doctor Who story.

    "Can't beat David Tennant"

    Pest Control is classic Dr Who. The eccentric personality of the Dr comes through this novel with the hard talking Donna Noble by his side. Whoever comes up with this story lines have not limits to their imagination. The reading by David Tennant is second to none, hearing his real accent to break up the characters of the story. Well worth a listen for all Dr Who fans.

    "The Doctor Reads"

    Dr Who actually read by the man currently playing Dr who. For a fan, I think that alone is worth the price of the book. The story itself is only fair. It sounds a bit to much like the plot from a comic, rather then Dr who. But its entertaining, if not terrible original.
