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.
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!
Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Jane Austen, Doctor Who, Elizabeth Gaskell, Doctor Who, other period drama, 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 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.
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.
