The TARDIS materialises on board the maiden voyage of a pioneering space cruiser, travelling from Earth to the planet Eternity. The Doctor has just started exploring the huge, hi-tech Interstitial Transposition Vehicle when there is a loud bang, a massive jolt, and a flash of light. Shortly afterwards, he discovers that nearly all the passengers and crew have disappeared. Unless the Doctor and flight attendant Sugar MacAuley can take control and steer the ship, they could crash-land or keep slipping through space forever. And as if that wasn't enough, something awful awaits them on Eternity.
Written exclusively for audio by Dan Abnett and read by David Tennant, The Last Voyage features the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

David Tennant does a a great job of reading this audiobook and keeping the listener interested and guessing what is going to happen next. We get the Doctor that we know and love, and yet we are not overloaded with so many sub-characters that we lose the storyline. Mr. Tennant's vocal range is fun to listen to, as is his voice in general, but with this performance there is a definite distinction between who is whom so the listener isn't left guessing whom is speaking at any one time. I appreciated this, as sometimes it is difficult to distinguish between characters with some readers.
I recommend this audiobook for Doctor Who fans. It is fun, mysterious and a great listen in the car.
I'm relatively new to the Who universe and when I found out there were audiobook novels available I became interested. I downloaded a couple of them to listen to as I work around my house (when I can't WATCH Doctor Who episodes) and I must say I am greatly pleased. It maintained the feel of the show and helped me imagine a fantastic vision of the story. I will definitely be getting more Doctor audiobooks.
There IS NO comparing The Doctor!
I was very excited to see that my favorite Doctor was narrating his own tale. I was not disappointed either. Mr. Tennant did a fantastic job and I can't wait to listen to him narrate another tale.
I already did because to my mind it is the best written Tenth Doctor audio book story.
I love Sugar MacAuley, she seems to be very curageous and street smart. She is an ordinary girl, raised to be extraordinary by her acquaintance with the Doctor. A bit like Rose Tyler, really.
Oh, so much!! He is a very good reader. He builds up the atmosphere with his voice and he brings colour to the characters by giving them all different accents. He has a warm, musical voice and his sligthly reigned in Scottish accent is beautiful. He is brilliant and I would always prefer his voice narrating to simply reading a book myself.
Yes and I actually did! More than once! ;-)
very enjoyable short story
this is my first Doctor Who book
The Doc of course
I was totally absorbed
I absolutely love Incursion stories, where some other realm is percolating into the world we know and love. This premise is what really hooked me.
The subject of another cosmos leaking into ours was the best bit, although David Tennant's spine-chilling loin-warming brogue is a close second.
The "Stop shouting my name!" scene at the fountain.
This is the kind of book that was so gushingly intense and fun I had to pause it to recover my breath and savor the experience.
The eldritch and un-knowable atmosphere of this story was great.
I like classic mysteries.
David Tennant makes the book a true adventure! love his voice.
Doctor Who, David is the best Doctor Who to date! you can imagine the story as he tells it.
Fantastic, as usual!
yes, no T.V. so this makes it great!
I will admit It was honestly better than some of the episodes in the whole series run.
Reading the book you'll do the his voice, but with Tennant being amazing as usual he makes every word explode in the space between your ears! The voices, oh the voices he does are so solid and with each one you can almost forget its just him... almost.
Historical & SciFi Book Lover, especially Georgette Heyer, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis (& New Who). Also books for the kids.
Dan Abnett is a superior Whovian author and this is the best of the David Tennant narrated pieces I have heard so far. His narrator voice is a very gentle Scottish accent, which makes it so easy to tell when he is being "The Doctor".
Highly recommend it.
This book is great. My son likes the doctor who series, and has an ipod and a dock bay. He loves to listen to audiobooks on his ipod, and loved having doctor who on his ipod to listen to. Recommend to any astrosaur loving person.
"I enjoyed this"
David Tennant did a good job as narrator. I enjoyed listening to this book.
