Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Dr WHO--WHAT??"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love the accent. Good acting.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this but at times I found it hard to follow who was were and what they were doing. On a couple of occasions I had to back it up to get my bearings.

    Story
    "Like a okay David Tenant and Rose episode"

    I would rate this as on par with an average David Tenant and Rose episode. Nothing memorable or ground breaking. Didn't take advantage of the possible extra length or unlimited budget (imagination) a book has over a TV show.

    Story
    "Did not work as an audiobook"
    What disappointed you about Doctor Who?

    It did not flow as well as the television episodes. This did not have the same feel as Dr. Who.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who?

    Confronting the woman on the bridge. No spoilers.


    What didn’t you like about David Tennant’s performance?

    David Tennant is so distinctive it is hard to hear him perform the other characters. This would have been better as a full cast audio style book.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Doctor who, I like audio books, and I thought this would be a great pairing but it just did not transfer well to this medium. I think part of the Doctors comic success is playing off of a straight man (serious character) and that is hard to do with one narrator.

    Story
    "Abridged To Death"

    This is an abridgment of a Doctor Who novel that ends up sounding like a rushed episode.

    David Tennant does a great job as narrator. Characters were nicely different and the voices he did for the regulars on the show when he was the Doctor actually sounded like the actors. Great job.

    Where it fell down was on the abridgement. It was so abridged that it just took all the life out of the story.

    I got this as a "Daily Deal" for a very low price, so I got my money's worth, but if I'd paid full price or a credit for it I would not have been happy.

    If you want a quick Dr. Who episode without much depth or description of scenes or people or much else then this is okay. I did give it a 3 for story so it wasn't terrible. But it could have been much better if they hadn't cut it so much.

    Story
    "B-Flick cinema brought to your headphones"

    If you've never experienced Dr. Who before, you may wonder what the heck this audio book is about. Rest assured, Dr. Who always comes with a pinch of cheesiness and a dollop of the ridiculous. It must be a recipe that works, as the series has a cult following the world over.

    I won't describe the story, as it is typical Dr. Who, but I will applaud the production and performances. BBC, as usual, does a top-notch job of making this an entertaining and well produced version.of the TV series.

    So, if you like Dr. Who on TV, don't be afraid of trying out this format. It 's almost as good as watching it on the tube.

    Story
    "A Great Return to Tennant"
    Would you listen to Doctor Who again? Why?

    Absolutely, especially as narrated by The Doctor himself. He nails all the characters, and is as emotive as ever.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Taken less inspiration from Waters of Mars, one of the more mediocre Doctor stories.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When The Doctor blasts through the wall. "Close enough!"


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's fluid and cerebral

    Story
    "Feast of the Drowned read by Tennant Rocks!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who to be better than the print version?

    Yes, hearing David Tennant wonderful reading of an abridged form of the book is just wonderful, mostly because he is so talented. He makes you believe it's Rose speaking when he is doing her voice. He makes you feel something for what I can only call the monster of the stories. He brings a kind of human quality to them so that you at least see so of the POV. He tells a wonderful tell that I would of loved to have seen filmed with Rose and the Doctor.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who?

    When Rose ends up in the river Thames soon followed by the Doctor trying to save the world once again and them trying to grab on to the crates or trunks or whatever those things are that are floating in the river. And flight off the bad guys who have them cornered. And the doctor poof (It would be a spoiler if I told you how he saves the day) saves the days. The dead die and the living live on.


    Which character – as performed by David Tennant – was your favorite?

    Rose- I have always had a weakness for Rose, the Doctor is 950 years old or more, he has been there done that many times, but Rose is just excited about being alive. She is always the heart of the show and the caring one, And can get the doctor in the worst trouble ever. Plus Rose can kick butt when she has too, she doesn't just sit there and wine she gets up and starts moving.


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

    Parts of freaked me out, the idea of drowning is not a pleasant one but have things controlling my brain while I do it is worse. So there was a definite gross out factor with this story.


    Any additional comments?

    It is an awesome including the gross out factor parts. And David Tennett does his very best acting reading this story.

    If you are like me, you'll enjoy this. All the classic DW aspects we've come to love, and the storyline with the "tenth" Doctor makes you want to rush home and have a marathon. Allonsy!

    David Tennant at his best; lots of voices for him to do. This is a great story, and DT knows how to bring it to life.
