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?

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.
I saw the plot twist coming from the beginning--but the Doctor and Amy were well done.
Yes--he understand the characters but could use a more complicated plot--though this is a very short book. Really just an hour episode.
She does a great job with all the characters.
Yes--not my favorite but good.
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.
No, not everything can be gold, I appreciate other quality books all the more.
No one scene stands out
Not cut, added a creature in their bubble to add a sense of danger.
I would spend credits on alternate Dr WHO books, this would be a last resort
I would change the "twist."
I think that having a different reason for the house being "empty" would have make the story more enjoyable. I wanted to be wowed.
I think she did I fine job.
It was alright but it didn't have that "ooh" moment where there's a twist and you are astonished, excited, and pleased.
