The title speaks for itself! Narrated by David Tennant, it feels like you are watching the shows again he narrates so well! David easily slides into the roles of Rose, The Doctor, and Mickey without slipping a beat and he has even THEIR personalities down! As the Doctor states it - "FANTASTIC!"
This audiobook is amazing. I love the show and am now falling in love with the books. This is the first book I have read or heard, I guess. I really like that David Tennant, or the Tenth Doctor, read this one. He brings such great inflection to the different characters. I really injoy the fact that when he reads the Doctor he uses his "Doctor Voice" as I call it and when he narrates he slips back to his Scottish roots. I recommend this to any and all Doctor Who Fans its Brilliant!!!

I've heard that the Doctor Who books can be cheesy, but this wasn't so bad. David Tennant does an excellent job with voicing the characters, but I felt his narration was a bit over-excited at times. I still liked it a lot, though! Lots of fun :)
You just can't go wrong with a ghost story, especially when it envolves Tennant's Doctor, Rose, and Mickey!
Even if you've read the book, listen to this anyway. As usual, David Tennant's enthusiasm really makes this audio (and his immitation of Mickey is right on!). It's great just to listen to him read this story as a Doctor Who fan.
Doctor Who, James Bond, Alexandre Dumas, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Gaskell, but mostly just Doctor Who.
Brilliant! It's always exciting to hear David Tennant bring the Doctor to life once again and his performance in The Feast of the Drowned is no exception. This is a really fascinating, slightly creepy story that reminds me just a little bit of Waters of Mars. If you're a big fan of Ten/Rose, you will love love love this story. I listen to this book over and over and over again.
I have yet to listen to a Doctor Who novel that was worth my time, and yet I keep trying. I love the television show and keep hoping to find an audio book that captures that same magic. This one did not though it might have been a half-decent tv script.
But at least I got to listen to David Tennant.
Creative, entertaining, imaginative.
The true character of the tenth doctor.
The only thing that would have made it better was if we could have had Billy Piper read Rose!
I can't say enough about David Tennant's performance. the Story was good. This one is set in modern times and involves Mickey. It's wonderful to spend more time with characters I love even after they have left the show.
Love to hear him switch between the his native Scottish accent as the narrator, to his Doctor, to Mickey, to Rose, to the other characters and monsters...just a really good time! I enjoyed the story, and would listen to it again.
I really wish that this one had been an episode of the show, it's really that good! The story was compelling and just the right amount of creepy for me, as someone afraid of the water--if you liked The Waters of Mars episode, there's a similar feeling to this story.
David Tennant's narration was spot-on, obviously as The Doctor, but all characters were brilliantly voiced, my favorite being Crenshaw...so delightfully unnerving!
Final words: give it a go, it's so worth it if you loved Ten!
