Loved this audio book, the stories and performances were all great. :)
My only issue is that there were a couple of spots that were obviously supposed to be edited out, like when a few readers would start sentence a second time because they hesitated or made a mistake. Seems a bit sloppy for Penguin.

"Little Rose Riding Hood?" Five stars for Rose's encounter with the Wood Cutter alone. If that doesn't do it for you then forget it. Paul McGann reads one. 5 stars for that too. Nicholas Briggs reading a Pied Piper story as the second Doctor? 5, count them, 5 stars for that. Want "War and Peace?" This is Time Lord Fairy Tales, search for Tolstoy. Bad Wolf.
This was a very cute book and well worth my free book credit this month. There are occasional editing mistakes but everything else was excellent. I highly recommend it for children.
Simply, this is well thought out fan fiction in the Whoverse. For fans, you will enjoy the bits and pieces that you will put together from the Doctor's.
More later as I let the stories sink in and I listen to it again, but with my children.
Not a single bad story in the set. It was fun trying to figure out the ones that don't make it obvious what story they're based on.
Some really excellent stories and narration mixed with a few duds. Would have liked a bit more Doctor Who references as well - some of them could have been any kind of generic SF or fantasy story.
I liked that stories were short. Almost all of them were fun and interesting to follow. Several featured the doctor.
