I will admit that Tennant is not my favorite of the new Doctors, They all run a very close race with each other. I thought his portrayal of the cast was brilliant! He got every ones personalities spot on and think he did a wonderful job narrating this book.
The writing was great also, I felt like this could have easily been an actual tv show. If I have any complaints, it would be that for the length of the book it could have had a few more twists. Dont get me wrong there were several but I have to admit that without knowing anything about the story, I had figured out the "bad guy" pretty early on which is normally harder to do in the actual show. Very entertaining book regardless!
This was so wonderful. The story was perfect for Doctor Who fans - enough twists and turns to keep me guessing, but not too many that I was confused by the end. The characters all felt true to their tv counterparts, and David Tennant's reading was a joy. I can't recommend this enough!
David Tennant reads this and he does an awesome job mimicking the voices of Rose, Mickey and Jackie, so the fact that there's only one reader doesn't detract from enjoying this story. There are also some great Doctor/Rose moments in there that make this more than worth it.
Definitely recommend for fans of the Tenth Doctor, Doctor/Rose shippers and just fans in general.
While we wait for the new Dr. Who to come out, we listen to this. It's a great way to get your Dr. Who fix.
Since I am currently obsessed with all things Dr Who & since Tennant has a damn sexy voice, I figured I would give this a shot. Pleasantly surprised on how entertaining and fast paced this story was. Didn't want to stop listening (and not just because of his dreamy voice - Call me David) as it was an absorbing story with intriguing secondary characters and plenty of fun Rose/Doctor/Mickey moments. So guess I will be downloading more of these.
Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and the occasional non-fiction or bestseller. :)
Entertaining, Adventure, Humorous
Yes! David Tennant is enthusiastic as a reader and characterist.
Chuckled at parts
This was a great extension of the TV series and David Tennant is marvelous. I wish for what I paid for it that the story was longer!
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.
Doctor Who, James Bond, Alexandre Dumas, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Gaskell, but mostly just Doctor Who.
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.
A great listen! David Tennant makes this story come alive, another fantastic tale of adventure with the Doctor!
The Doctor of course, Tennant in the role was the best!
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!
YES!! I just found out about the audio books. and only this year learned about the reading books.
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.
Yes and i did. I dont see why you wouldnt listen to the whole story in one sitting, anything less is crazy.
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!)
