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.

    Story
    "I felt like I had just watched a Dr Who show!"

    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!

    "First Doctor novel, definitely not my last"

    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!

    Story
    "If you love Ten/Rose, you'll love this."

    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    "Fun and Fastbased"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    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!

    "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.

    Doctor Who, James Bond, Alexandre Dumas, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Gaskell, but mostly just Doctor Who.

    "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!)
