    "Spooky!"

    Loved the epic scope and "monster." Tennant was fantastic as usual. He manages so many accents and different many voices!

    "A fascinating story but not everybody's genre"
    If you could sum up Doctor Who in three words, what would they be?

    Emotional, adventurous, wonderful.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Peter Anghelides? Why or why not?

    I'm not sure. His writing was good but the topic wasn't really mine so I would have to see what the other book would be about.


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    Everything, as usual. His wonderful voice, his ability to create atmosphere and build up tension, his various characters and accents. Great performance.


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

    Yes, it was. It was a well told story full of tension and I was curious about how it would procede. The story evolves around war and soldiers which I don't normally like (hence my three stars for the story) but it was well told.

    "Wonderful narration, regretful sound effects"
    Any additional comments?

    6 stars for David Tennant's narration, but 1.5 stars for the sound effects that are meant, I'm sure, to add dimension to the listening experience; however David Tennant, as any good narrator does, provides more than enough animation and dimension with his performance and the added mood music and robot voices and animal sounds and other noises are all just very distracting and really disturb this whole experience for me. Might have been a 5-star audiobook if only the added sounds weren't there.

    "Music with audiobook, not for me"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you like music and sound effects then you might like this audiobook.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Peter Anghelides again?

    Maybe, I'm open to giving him another try.


    Which character – as performed by David Tennant – was your favorite?

    The Doctor


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    David Tennant reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised that he wasn't spot on for The Doctor. Other readers have done the Doctors voice better. :)

    "Military Story"

    I liked this one for the most part. I didn't like the dramatic music playing in the background. I don't think it needed it, and it made it 10 times as creepy, especially since I usually listen at night. If you like to be super creeped out and a little grossed out, go ahead and listen.

    "David Tennant... the end"
    What did you love best about Doctor Who?

    This story is good on its own but David Tennant's performance is the icing on the cake! The Doctor and Donna are true to their characters. It's lovely to spend more time with them.!


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to this I added all of the Doctor/Donna stories to my queue and I have already listened to all of the stories narrated by David Tennant.

    "Several "driveway moments" with this one"
    What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who the most enjoyable?

    I listened to "Pest Control" on a cross-country drive from Denver to Chicago recently. Found myself repeatedly lingering at rest stops because I didn't want to disengage from the story long enough to turn off the player while I got back on the highway. I guess that says a lot about how engrossing the story, how spot-on the characterizations and how engating the narration were!


    What does David Tennant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Two points, the first of which is fairly obvious: The Doctor is being read by The Doctor! The second point being that David Tennant is as marvelous and consummate a voice actor as he is in film, on television and on the stage. It is clear from the amount of characterization he puts into each role he voices that he treats story narration with the same care and thoughtfulness that he puts into roles with visual as well as audio components.

    Craftsmanship, whether it is evidenced in handcrafts, stagecraft, wordsmithing, or any other art form is an instantly recognizable quality when it is there; and it is most definitely "there" in Mr. Tennant's masterful narration.


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

    Yes. And, happily, I did!

    My first audiobook. I loved DT's performance; his characters were brilliant. I especially loved hearing him "do" Donna. A very good Doctor Who story.

    "Can't beat David Tennant"

    Pest Control is classic Dr Who. The eccentric personality of the Dr comes through this novel with the hard talking Donna Noble by his side. Whoever comes up with this story lines have not limits to their imagination. The reading by David Tennant is second to none, hearing his real accent to break up the characters of the story. Well worth a listen for all Dr Who fans.
