    "I quite enjoyed it."

    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.

    "Outstanding story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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!


    Which character – as performed by Anthony Head – was your favorite?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but only because I didn't want it to end so I rationed it a bit.

    "Average story excellently read"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend to either an ardent Doctor Who fan, or an admirer of Anthony Head's work.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was a long build up to a short unsatisfactory ending with a few loose ends needing tying up.


    What about Anthony Head’s performance did you like?

    An eloquent performance with just the right amount of dramatic inflection to keep the story interesting.

    "Best, just best"

    I love love loved this Doctor Who, it's got Team TARDIS with Nine and Rose and Jack and follows a few different stories at a time, so one never gets bored. Never saw the ending coming.

    "Anthony Head is a wonderful narrator."
    Where does Doctor Who: Only Human rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This story is ok. The narrator is what makes it such an enjoyable listen.


    Have you listened to any of Anthony Head’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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

    "ONLY HUMAN...LOVED THIS!!"
    Where does Doctor Who: Only Human rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Dr. Who as always ranks right up there near the top. To date I have not been disappointed by Dr. Who.


    What other book might you compare Doctor Who: Only Human to, and why?

    Any time travel book, that is the beauty. No matter how many you read, it is Dr. Who, so it has it's own special quality of humor.


    What does Anthony Head bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Anthony Head is brilliant. He is the reason I chose this book in the first, he is a favorite of mine.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Y es, and I did so. Since I am listening I can do other things at the same time and do not have to stop listening if I am enjoying the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Dr. Who read by Anthony Head, two of my favorites! This is s listen that should not be missed, the fresh view of evetyday things that we see through the eyes of someone experiencing them for the first time....is always enjoyable. And I laughed often over this aspect of the story.
