When a naval cruiser sinks in mysterious circumstances in the North Sea, all aboard are lost. Rose is saddened to learn that the brother of her friend, Keisha, was among the dead.

As the dead crew haunt loved ones all over London, the Doctor and Rose are drawn into a chilling mystery. What sank the ship, and why? When the cruiser's wreckage was towed up the Thames, what sinister force came with it? The river's dark waters are hiding an even darker secret, as preparations for the feast near their conclusion.

    "Good, but not add good as the TV"

    I enjoyed it, but somehow it didn't measure up to the TV series. Probably just me, but there was something missing. then again, Tenant's voices were excellent is the telling.

    "David Tennant brings this story to life"

    David Tennant is a fantastic narrator and brings to life not just The Doctor but all the characters from Rose to the villains. There were some great action moments. Overall I enjoyed the story as a fan of Doctor Who even with a few moments where I thought the plot and characterisations weren't completely consistent within the story.

    "Another great story!"

    The story is exciting to hear as David Tennant does a great job with the voices. The story and characters are in keeping with the TV show. The writer did a great job considering that he didn't have much screened work to go by.

    "Always fun stories"

    I always like these books. Another fun paranormal, Sci-Fi mixed with the mystery of the sea. I don't watch this series but I certainly enjoy reading these shorts. Good for YA but not strictly just for YA.

    "Fun story! David Tennant is Brilliant!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a fun story and made me laugh out loud in quite a few spots. The characters were well written and stayed true to their on screen personas.


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    Everything! David Tennant is an amazing story teller! How he manages to keep all the characters straight in his head so that everyone has their own voice and personality, is beyond me! But he does it beautifully! I bought this audio book specifically for him and was pleased to find that the story was good too. But mainly it was for him and he never disappoints.

    Story
    "Strange and different, not a clone of the TV show"

    The story involved the Doctor, Rose, Mickey and friends of Rose - and I don't think the Tardis figured in at all. Everything happened here on earth but wasn't entirely earthly to be sure. I can't say I *liked* the storyline, it was creepy and I'm not a fan of the creepies to be honest. What I am a fan of is David Tennant as the Doctor. His voice acting was so fantastic that I had to keep reminding myself that all the voices were really all one person - his Mikey was so well done I kept wondering who the actor doing Mikey was! 100 stars for the narration, and 3 stars for the story. Nothing wrong with the story other than it kind of creeped me out. Other people may think that by itself is worth a couple dozen stars, so consider your own preferences, please!

    Would you listen to Doctor Who again? Why?

    Always!


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

    David Tennant is an amazing actor and is just as brilliant as a narrator. He has an innate ability to give each character their own voice and mannerisms and nails the characters portrayed by other actors. Truly brilliant to listen to!

    Story
    "Formulaic, but familiar and written for DW fans"

    This novel follows closely to the television formula: The Doctor and companion are drawn into a mystery set in modern day London, discover an alien invasion plot, and they (well, HE, really) foil it after a few twists and turns. I don’t consider that bit a spoiler, as any licensed material must necessarily deliver all the characters and settings back unaltered by the conclusion- series authors don’t own, they rent. I’ll agree with other reviewers in pointing out the similarities in the story’s villains with those in the television episode “Waters of Mars”. However, I must defend Cole in saying he wrote three years in advance of that episode’s airing. The areas to truly judge a DW story by, I feel, are the peripheral one-off characters that one wouldn’t expect to see return in any other story. These are the few with which the author can take liberties with and write freely; the portion of the whole which is owned and not rented. Most of those appearing in 'Feast of the Drowned' were unremarkable for me, and none experienced any transformative hero’s journey in this story with the possible exception of the scientist Vida. Her transition from opposition figure to team member by story’s end is not spectacularly different from any other such character conversion from the series. Nor are Crayshaw and the other villains all that dissimilar from other would-be alien invaders of Earth who had the poor luck to attempt their plans on the day that The Doctor happened to be passing through the neighborhood. Like the rest of the crowd, he is prone to monologuing his plan to The Doctor in a moment of perceived victory with raspy voice. I was also underwhelmed with the silver-bullet trope of the conclusion, and expect I’m not the only reader who foresaw it in the early pages of the story. None of the complaints should dissuade series fans from reading the book- it’s very familiarities that make it a weaker story in the wider pool of SF literature are the aspects of it that will make it enjoyable to its established audience of Doctor Who fans.

    Really it's comparable to an episode of the series and was great!


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    Everything, he's amazing.


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

    Oh we laughed so much!
