True to form.
The story feels very "Doctor Who". The pacing is right and the reader (listener) keeps just a few seconds ahead of the story, which is the way it should be for optimum suspension of disbelief.
Georgia Moffett is excellent at the voices and accents of the characters, including the David Tennant Doctor (maybe it helps that he is her husband).This is the first one by her, but it made me want to buy more.
The third act twist, and double-twist, and triple-twist were such classic Who that it really felt nostalgic.
I like Doctor Who.
The world Blythe creates in this novel is completely believable and I found his original characters realistic. While this novel isn't particularly scary, I did find the depictions of the Autons actually horrific, something that was not possible to really convey in the live-action show. This book has a strong storyline, good characters, just a hint of timey-wimeyness, and Georgia Moffett nails the characters' voices. It is good, clean, Doctor Who fun!
I'm relatively new to the Who universe and when I found out there were audiobook novels available I became interested. I downloaded a couple of them to listen to as I work around my house (when I can't WATCH Doctor Who episodes) and I must say I am greatly pleased. It maintained the feel of the show and helped me imagine a fantastic vision of the story. I will definitely be getting more Doctor audiobooks.
This particular novel had everything a multi-episode arc of the TV Series has. Intriguing characters, fun twists and hilarious Doctor moments. I truly enjoyed it and look forward to more Who novels.
Ms. Moffett did a SPECTACULAR job of narrating the story. Her work was well varied from character to character to bring each one to life and she did an especially good job of holding to Mr. Tennant's characteristics when she performed the conversations of The Doctor. I look forward to hearing her narrate more tales of The Doctor.
Read by Georgia Moffet, this story was an exciting and tense adventure featuring the Doctor and some long-time nemeses.
Moffet is a marvel with accents and her Doctor is spot-on. Her story telling was lively and wonderful.
The Doctor, of course.
I laughed out loud several times. There's one line by the Doctor in particular, but I don't want to spoil it.
Moffett's voice characterizations. I hope she does more of them.
When the boy remarks about his mom's dead boyfriend and the part about lady with the hypercard frozen in ice.
Moffett's Doctor was perfect and all the rest of the characters were entertaining.
There were, but I can't think of them right now and I don't want to give anything away either.
I liked the BF audios, but these BBC creations were new to me. I wasn't too sure about the topic either, but I must admit that this one made me hungry for more. Great filler until the Doctor returns to the air. I am so glad I started with this BBC audio first.
I couldn't wait for the next season for more Doctor Who. Next time, I will consider my choice more carefully. There was nothing bad about the book, it just didn't meet my expectations.
Read by the gorgeous Georgia Moffett (daughter of Doctor #5 Peter Davison), This story has the feeling of a true Doctor Who episode!
Her rendition of the doctor is truly believable, and narrates very well.
The plot plays very much like an episode, with the doctor picking up a few friends throughout the story.
8/10 for the plot
9/10 for the narration!
"it's an excellent book!"
the reader of the book is excellent and although she is a lady she can do david tennets voice just spot on. as a big dr who fan this makes the book more interesting as i have heard some audiobooks and they acn sound quite boring and that is why i mainly stuck to the books read by david tennet. the story is quite good i'd give the story 3/5 as have read better.
I have listened to this book loads of times and I'm not tired of it yet. It's so funny in parts, that I still laugh.
"The Plastic is Back!"
I read the book when it came out and I loved it as much then as I do know. It's a fantastic book for any Doctor Who fan or for someone wanting to get into it. Georgia Moffet is a brilliant reader and makes the story come alive. If you enjoyed this I would recommend Doctor Who and the Auton Invasion or Apollo 23. Both are great Audiobooks.
"Classic Doctor Who"
Completely amazed by Georgia Moffett's narration - she somehow manages to inflect the right accent and quirky quality into the Doctor's voice (and that of the other characters). I really enjoyed this story, and the only letdown was that his companion in this story is a one-off. Shame, because I thought she was great and would have loved to hear more stories about her! It's a classic Doctor Who romp through a futuristic shopping and entertainment mall, and of course the Autons are great baddies.
"Good story, well told"
It's a good story that would make a good TV show. It held my 11 year old's attention over a few hours, which is a good sign. Georgia Moffett narrates with flair and has a good grasp of the tenth doctor, perhaps having something of an unfair advantage over other narrators in that sense!
Anyway, very good, enjoyed it a lot.
"An excellent listen"
Very enjoyable and well read audio book. I was totally gripped. clever story line.
