Somebody’s interfering with time. The Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack arrive on modern-day Earth to find the culprit - and discover a Neanderthal Man, twenty-eight thousand years after his race became extinct. Only a trip back to the primeval dawn of humanity can solve the mystery. Who are the mysterious humans from the distant future now living in the distant past? What hideous monsters are trying to escape from behind the Grey Door? Is Rose going to end up married to a caveman?
Caught between three very different types of human being - past, present and future - the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack must learn the truth behind the Osterberg experiment before the monstrous Hy-Bractors escape to change humanity’s history forever...

I think Anthony does a great job reading anything. Great actor and voice.
The script and take was unique and caught me quite offguard.
It definitely kept my attention throughout the storyline.
I would recommend to either an ardent Doctor Who fan, or an admirer of Anthony Head's work.
It was a long build up to a short unsatisfactory ending with a few loose ends needing tying up.
An eloquent performance with just the right amount of dramatic inflection to keep the story interesting.
This is an exciting story with plenty of humour and some serious thoughts as well. The characters are very well done; the regulars are true to their on screen lives, and the original characters are believable and interesting.
Daz -he must have been quite challenging to write. This Neanderthal is far from stupid,
yet has great difficulty with some human concepts. Jack Harkness being his mentor is quite entertaining!
I think he got Jack's voice the best. Somehow he doesn't sound like the 9th Doctor at all this is my only problem with the performance, but all the other characters and the narration are great and I much enjoyed listening.
No, but only because I didn't want it to end so I rationed it a bit.
This story is ok. The narrator is what makes it such an enjoyable listen.
Anthony head has a way of bringing characters to life. Please have him do more books!!!!
"A Lost Doctor"
The story is a good one with monsters that have a good rationale behind them (and who really is the 'monster' here. The Doctor and Rose head back to the time of early man (shades of An Unearthly Child), but with a futuristic research base also present. Sadly Captain Jack is sidelined into his own adventure that makes him feel more like an afterthought than a part of the story.
Anthony Head nails all of the main cast brilliantly, in particular sounding like Ecclestone's short-lived ninth incarnation. In addition all of the other main characters sound different from one another, though the eccentric Quilley does sound too much like Simon Callow.
Well worth the listen to
