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.

    "Soooo Very Doctor Who!"

    I love this book and have listened to it a number of times! I am an avid fan of Doctor Who and know stories outside of the watchful eye of the TV writers can miss the mark, but this has not left me wanting - except for more.

    Jacqueline Rayner really knows her topic and her characters. I could easily be watching this as a television episode of Doctor Who.

    David Tennant nails the characters - obviously his own rendition of the Dr is easy but he switches so effortlessly between Rose, her mum, Micky and a bunch of new characters, intermingled with his own Scottish narration. He is great at keeping a consistent voice for each which makes it so easy to keep track of the story.

    There is also a bonus interview at the end with Jacqueline Rayner which is insightful, though the quality of the audio is a little "can-like".

    It's only a few hours so is great for a lengthy drive in the car (or a really bad traffic jam). It will make the time pass quickly.

    "Worth it for David's narration"

    Basic Doctor Who adventure, a little bit easy to figure out, but more difficult to solve and with an interesting plot twist at the end. Not sure how well it would play out as a real episode, but a good read. And David Tennant's voice makes everything exceptional. His Mickey impression is the best.

    "FANTASTIC!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who to be better than the print version?

    A great listen! David Tennant makes this story come alive, another fantastic tale of adventure with the Doctor!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Doctor of course, Tennant in the role was the best!


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job performing the other character's voices, especially Jackie and Mickey. His Rose was hysterical and the "Genie" voice was pretty amusing as well!

    "Pretty Good"
    Would you listen to Doctor Who again? Why?

    YES!! I just found out about the audio books. and only this year learned about the reading books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything David Tennant! I dont care if its a crummy story, if he's in it, it makes it better. Now at the crummy storylinesand shows of Dr #11 (worst ones ever, except one of the last ones before Nov 2013), not worth watching.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and i did. I dont see why you wouldnt listen to the whole story in one sitting, anything less is crazy.


    Any additional comments?

    Im glad there are audio books of Dr. Who. I like the ones David Tennant reads. His are the best, as he was the best Dr. I hope he continues to read audio books, especially ones of him and rose. Why not, infinite possiblities of stories. He could make a good side business doing these readings, and give us more enjoyment of Dr. Who for decades to come. (They should have him come back as himself on the show. I dont see why the Dr cant transform back into a previous doctor!)

    "Mediocre but entertaining"

    As far as Doctor Who radio presentations go, I would rank this somewhere in the middle. I liked it better than some because it takes place in Ancient Rome, and I always find historical Doctor Who stories fun. However, objectively the story isn't great. It's just something to pass the time when you've run out of Doctor Who episodes and you need a David Tennant fix. Speaking of time, this is an abridgment, but you pay as much as you would for an unabridged book. $8.59 (with membership) for 2 hours and 22 minutes is ridiculous.

    Story
    "Great! Shoulda been filmed"

    First: David Tennant is an excellent verbal actor. Sure, you're getting this because you liked Doctor 10. But stay for the fact that his vocal characterizations are excellent (and, when they're characters with whom we're familiar like Rose or Mickey, dead on). Narrator David Tennant speaks in his natural Scottish accent, while the Tenth Doctor speaks in his BBC voice. This alone is worth your cash.

    Second: This is an excellent story. Complex while not overly contrived. Well described. Neat plot twists. Works in overall continuity well (later 1/2 of series 2, I think). It's got time and space, and some funky timey-wimey-ness that makes it fun.

    "Just Wonderful!"
    If you could sum up Doctor Who in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, weird, sweet.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's very true to the format of the show. The author really nailed the twisty, confusing, "how did you make that all make sense" style of my favorite TV episodes. Also I may be a little partial to David Tennant's voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I got the giggles when David Tennant voiced Mickey. Spot on. I had to rewind because I was laughing so hard I missed some of the conversation.

    "For my first DW audiobook, not bad at all!"

    Overall this book was a good, maybe not great story but nonetheless, it was interesting and with David Tennant narrating, even better. He was able to make Mickey and Rose come to life for me. I can say that I would listen to it again.

    "The Doctor and Rose get stoned"

    The Doctor and Rose investigate a disappearance as well as people seemingly turning to stone. In the process they get stoned themselves. How will they get out of this one?
    David (the 10th Doctor) Tennant does a Brilliant job performing and breathing life into this fun adventure. Its very entertaining and short enough to be enjoyed several times.
