A wedding on the planet Koturia turns out to be a far more dangerous proposition than the Sixth Doctor and Peri ever expected. It marks the return of a formidable old foe whose genius matches the Doctor's. Can the Doctor outwit this villain, save Peri and stop the wedding in time?
American fantasy author Richelle Mead puts her own twist on the Doctor's amazing adventures through time and space.

Yes, the narrator, or at least how she chose to perform this audiobook.
Ms Aldred did an excellent job portraying The Doctor, but fell short with Perry and went completely over the top with The Rani. Her interpretation of The Rani's inflections made her character into a complete caricature. She became impossible to take seriously. I found it quite odd that Ms Aldred's male characters seemed to be done with more skill than her female ones.
Richelle Mead penned an excellent story here. It is a shame that Sophie Aldred's performance detracted from it. A narrator's job is to enhance the author's work for the listener, not create an obstacle to their enjoyment of the book.
