Publisher's Summary

Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum; a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture. While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who claims to know the future; a girl whose predictions are surprisingly accurate. But then the Doctor stumbles on the hideous truth behind the statue of Rose, and Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for. Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

    "For anyone who wants more 10th & Rose"

    I loved this book. It was clever and fun with some very sweet moments between The Doctor and Rose. Besides who wouldn't want to hear David Tennant talk for nearly 2 & 1/2 hours? You don't have to worry about this story going against cannon or being unfaithful to the Doctor Who series. I too enjoyed the author interview at the end. I'm a huge Doctor Who fan and this was my first Doctor Who audiobook and I'm so glad I gave it a listen.

    "Back and forth to solve the answer, again..."

    When the Doctor finds a statue of Rose, he and her head back to the time the statue was apparently made to find out why. Here they come across a plot involving a sculptor with unusual gifts, a woman who can predict the future awfully well, and a case of several missing persons (mostly slaves). Being the Doctor, he has stumbled right into the middle of plots nefarious.

    Jacqueline Rayner asks the question that a lot of us have wondered at some time or another: why doesn't the Doctor use his time machine more as a time machine? Why doesn't he fly off to some distant future or another and get a miracle cure, or a miracle machine, or go back prior to things getting really bad and fix them at the start? The mythos of the show (and additionals) set down some rules to prevent this; but it always feels like the rules could be broken a little bit here or there. This is not to spoil exactly how things go down, but you do find one answer: it feels a little like a cop out. As the reader (or, well, listener); you feel little left out when everything can be solved by creative off-screening. The last third or so of this book deflates, rapidly, whatever tension that first two thirds has established.

    Not poorly written, though, and fairly interesting; and David Tennant does a wonderful job as narrator (especially delightful is when he switches from his reader's voice to the voice of the Doctor). On all technical accounts, I was pleased. I was just not too sure about the way it was all resolved. Fits right in with the "a little too magical" elements of the 10th Doctor's first season, I suppose.

    "Great story. Love afterward."

    Great storyline. I would love to read/listen to a full length Doctor Who novel (9th Doctor please!) from her.

    "Short but Fun"

    It's a great short story. I feel like it was meant for a younger Doctor Who crowd, but that didn't stop me from enjoying. David Tennant was great narrating and at doing the different voices. His addition to it is what really made this worthwhile. My only "complaint" is that it was very short, although the interview with David Tennant at the end was interesting.

    "Best book I've listened to in months!"

    What a treasure. David Tennant was perfection in his narration of this excellent novel. It's rich with humor, surprises and nonsense. All who fans add this to your 'must read'.

    "Fun story, great to be with Doctor and Rose again"

    A Doctor Who story read by my favorite Doctor. The plot line was solid. The characterizations of Rose and the Doctor were spot on. My only complaint is I wish it were longer!

    "Great Story"

    I really liked this story, it was intense and engaging, without being to dark.
    And of course David Tennant's performance was on spot.
