Publisher's Summary

The Daleks are advancing, their empire expanding into Earth's space. The Earth forces are resisting in every way they can. But the battles rage on across countless solar systems. And now the future of our galaxy hangs in the balance....

The Doctor finds himself stranded on board a starship near the frontline with a group of ruthless bounty hunters. Earth Command will pay them for every Dalek they kill, every eye stalk they bring back as proof. With the Doctor's help, the bounty hunters achieve the ultimate prize: a Dalek prisoner. But where the Daleks are involved, nothing is what it seems, and no one is safe. Before long the tables will be turned, and the Doctor will become a prisoner of the Daleks....

    "Oh, Come now!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who: Prisoner of the Daleks to be better than the print version?

    All you Time Lords looking to expand on the Daleks, might want to check this out. The reviews were good so I took this on, and was quite pleased. It is a bit muckity muck starting but the second half of the book flies. The Doctor's beliefs are very torn in his actions and you see a deeper side of him through this. No spoilers here, mates, you should check it for yourself. I gave the performance five stars because he does have the doctor spot on. Well played my friend, well played indeed...

    "Memorable."

    The Daleks are scary again and the characters are well-developed in this fast-paced thriller. Nicholas Briggs has a real handle on the atmosphere and timing. Has enough twists to keep the story unpredictable, but not so many that it seems contrived. Perfect blend of classic era storytelling and "Nu Who" excitement. The Doctor is in top form. This is one of those audiobooks that you might end up listening to more than once.

    Story
    "Tired of the sunny disposition of th Walking Dead?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who enjoyed The Day After or otherwise needs some additional motivation to leap off a building.


    What was most disappointing about Trevor Baxendale’s story?

    75% of this book is an elongated dissertation of torture, humiliation and needless violence, contributing little or nothing to the story arc itself. The first and last parts of the story would have been a good story alone. One can only assume an editor talked a writer into expanding a short story into a novel. A writer with no sense of humor and a penchant for poking puppies and kittens with a stick.


    Any additional comments?

    For me, the Doctor represents the best combination of intelligence, wit and compassion. This novel references none of those admirable qualities.

    Story
    "Daleks!"

    The Daleks always make a good Doctor Who story. It's hard to screw up the Daleks. And when you've got the actual voice of the Daleks doing the reading, it's even better. I could care less what the story was actually about just because Nick Briggs was reading it.

    The story was good, though, I feel like the Daleks have lost a bit of their high-end enemy status with a few of the latest episodes. Prisoner of the Daleks brings back all of the horror, viciousness, and brutality that the Doctor's oldest enemy should have. Very well done.

    "Simply brilliant"

    I have been reading Dr Who Audio books for 15 years and this is possibly the best. Nicholas Briggs is on of the best narrators of audio boos and his knowledge of the Doctor means that he understands the character at the deepest level. It has pace and lacks desire to overcomplicate which can sometimes bog down modern Doctor Who books.

    Story
    "Gripping from start to finish"

    I can't really decide whether this is brilliantly written or brilliantly read. It's probably a bit of both, but I didn't analyse it a whole lot while I was listening to it because I was too busy being thoroughly entertained. I was a big fan of David Tennant as the Doctor, and listening to this audiobook was almost as if he had returned to the role. I have listened to David Tennant reading Doctor Who stories and, unsurprisingly, they are wonderful entertainment, but this runs a very, very close second to those. Bravo. I'll be scouring Audible for more like this.

    Story
    "Brilliant"

    I cant speak more highly of this book or Nic Brigs' narration, simply brilliant

    The only negative is that the author seems to ignore completely that the Daleks have been time traveling since the William Hartnell 1965 story the Chase and in the 1986 story.....oh now i sound like a spotter.

    Still highly recomended

    "The best doctor who book i have ever read!!!"
    Would you listen to Doctor Who: Prisoner of the Daleks again? Why?

    Yes I already have started listening to it again simply because it was superb.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The thing I liked best was the brilliant storyline.


    Have you listened to any of Nicholas Briggs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have, he could turn the worst doctor who book and make it amazing just due to his knowledge of the doctor and how Nicholas knows how the doctor ticks because he has worked with him for so long.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There's was a bit that moved me but I will not say as it would be a big spoiler and could possibly ruin book.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing book! If you see this buy it. If you read this review and considered buying it but didn't, your dead to me!
