Doctor Who: The Empty House | [Simon Guerrier]

Doctor Who: The Empty House

Thrown off course by a howling storm, the TARDIS lands in a bleak, desolate stretch of countryside. The Doctor deduces that it has arrived in Hampshire in the 1920s and, sniffing the air, he smells a distinct odour of sulphur - indicating that a spaceship has crashed in the area. While Rory goes to fetch an umbrella, Amy and the Doctor brave the rain to find the stricken craft. It is huge, shiny, silvery-blue - and completely empty. A set of footprints leads to a cosy-looking, old-fashioned cottage: but the house, too, is deserted.

Publisher's Summary

Thrown off course by a howling storm, the TARDIS lands in a bleak, desolate stretch of countryside. The Doctor deduces that it has arrived in Hampshire in the 1920s and, sniffing the air, he smells a distinct odour of sulphur - indicating that a spaceship has crashed in the area. While Rory goes to fetch an umbrella, Amy and the Doctor brave the rain to find the stricken craft. It is huge, shiny, silvery-blue - and completely empty. A set of footprints leads to a cosy-looking, old-fashioned cottage: but the house, too, is deserted. However, the Doctor and Amy can distinctly hear people talking - and one of the voices sounds like Rory's.

How could he be in the cottage when he was last seen heading back to the TARDIS? Where are the residents of the empty house? And what has happened to the inhabitants of the spaceship?

Raquel Cassidy reads this exclusive audio adventure featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory.

    "Too good but too short"

    It is hard to decide if I got my money's worth. I love Dr. Who and enjoyed this audiobook but it just seemed too short. It was like having an audible episode of Doctor Who, wrapped up in an hour or so. I'm not sure if I really cared for the background sounds but overall the narrator did a pretty good job.

    "Empty Calories"
    What disappointed you about Doctor Who: The Empty House?

    Truly a zero of a story. Revolving around the characters being on different planes and a forced sense of urgency with no threat. Good performance with no story.


    Has Doctor Who: The Empty House turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not everything can be gold, I appreciate other quality books all the more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No one scene stands out


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Doctor Who: The Empty House?

    Not cut, added a creature in their bubble to add a sense of danger.


    Any additional comments?

    I would spend credits on alternate Dr WHO books, this would be a last resort

    "It started out good"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the "twist."


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

    I think that having a different reason for the house being "empty" would have make the story more enjoyable. I wanted to be wowed.


    What aspect of Raquel Cassidy’s performance would you have changed?

    I think she did I fine job.


    Any additional comments?

    It was alright but it didn't have that "ooh" moment where there's a twist and you are astonished, excited, and pleased.
