Publisher's Summary

Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum; a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture. While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who claims to know the future; a girl whose predictions are surprisingly accurate. But then the Doctor stumbles on the hideous truth behind the statue of Rose, and Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for. Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

    "My Favorite Doctor!"

    I loved this! David Tennant as the doctor...can't get better than that.
    The story is very good. Listened to it in one sitting. I am a Who fan forever!

    "Back and forth to solve the answer, again..."

    When the Doctor finds a statue of Rose, he and her head back to the time the statue was apparently made to find out why. Here they come across a plot involving a sculptor with unusual gifts, a woman who can predict the future awfully well, and a case of several missing persons (mostly slaves). Being the Doctor, he has stumbled right into the middle of plots nefarious.

    Jacqueline Rayner asks the question that a lot of us have wondered at some time or another: why doesn't the Doctor use his time machine more as a time machine? Why doesn't he fly off to some distant future or another and get a miracle cure, or a miracle machine, or go back prior to things getting really bad and fix them at the start? The mythos of the show (and additionals) set down some rules to prevent this; but it always feels like the rules could be broken a little bit here or there. This is not to spoil exactly how things go down, but you do find one answer: it feels a little like a cop out. As the reader (or, well, listener); you feel little left out when everything can be solved by creative off-screening. The last third or so of this book deflates, rapidly, whatever tension that first two thirds has established.

    Not poorly written, though, and fairly interesting; and David Tennant does a wonderful job as narrator (especially delightful is when he switches from his reader's voice to the voice of the Doctor). On all technical accounts, I was pleased. I was just not too sure about the way it was all resolved. Fits right in with the "a little too magical" elements of the 10th Doctor's first season, I suppose.

    "They have done it again!!!"

    This is a fantastic book, wonderfully read by the Doctor Himself, David Tennant. This book has it all, the past the present and the future like only Doctor who can. This is the cream of the crop. Not to be missed

    "A Must for Doctor Who Fans!"

    I've read several of the Doctor Who books and was happy to find them here. The Stone Rose is, in itself, one of the better stories I have found, and David Tennant's narration is perfect! Not only is it so engaging to have the actual voice of The Doctor, he does every voice wonderfully, with wonderful impressions of known characters and just as good a job done on bit parts. This is a great download, just as good as (and in some cases better than) an episode!

    "Great Series Book"

    The writing on this book gives a very authentically Rose and the 10th Doctor feeling. A great story. Well read by the actor who plays the doctor. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    "Fascinating Story"

    This story has everything you could want in a Dr Who story: a wonderful mystery with sufficient twists to keep you on your toes, witty comments from the Dr, lively characters, and a fantastic villain. The narrator is great and tells an exciting story. I listened to this one twice in a row.

    Story
    "If you love Ten/Rose, you'll love this."

    David Tennant reads this and he does an awesome job mimicking the voices of Rose, Mickey and Jackie, so the fact that there's only one reader doesn't detract from enjoying this story. There are also some great Doctor/Rose moments in there that make this more than worth it.

    Definitely recommend for fans of the Tenth Doctor, Doctor/Rose shippers and just fans in general.

    "Classic Dr. Who"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    While we wait for the new Dr. Who to come out, we listen to this. It's a great way to get your Dr. Who fix.

    Story
    "Perfect story for the "in-between books" period"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who to be better than the print version?

    The way in which David Tennant can voice so many different characters keeps amazing me. Here he not only captures the essence of Rose and Mickey, it is a great pleasure to hear "The Doctor" appear out of Tennant's reading voice. The enthralling and at times very funny performance is what makes this story work.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jacqueline Rayner? Why or why not?

    Maybe, the story itself was not that extraordinarily amazing that I would seek her out immediately. However, I am quite curious how she would handle longer stories.


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    Everything! He sets a good pace, he can bring tension or humour when appropriate and can give each character its own distinctive voice.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a perfect book to read/ listen to whilst recovering from a very intense read when you're not yet ready to start a new one. Or when you have 2hrs to spend traveling somewhere.
