The past is like a foreign country: nice to visit, but you really wouldn’t want to live there. In 2003, Rebecca Whitaker died in a road accident. Her husband, Mark, is still grieving. He receives a battered envelope, posted eight years ago, containing a set of instructions with a simple message: "You can save her."
As Mark is given the chance to save Rebecca, it’s up to the Doctor, Amy, and Rory to save the whole world. Because this time the Weeping Angels are using history itself as a weapon.
Read by Clare Corbett, Touched by an Angel features the Doctor, Amy, and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

I buy these audio books for myself and my kids. I have to say that I don't know if my kids will enjoy this story as much, but I loved it. The angels are back, but in a new way. I really wanted to find out what would happen next, and "couldn't put it down". Clare Corbett does a really good job narrating. I will be listening to this one again.
This is the best to date. Usually a book based on a TV show is a watered down story that doesn't affect the shows continuum and steers clear of the big villains. This would have made an excellent episode of the series. It personally had an impact on me because I listened to this book, around the time of the Weeping Angels offed Rory and Amy from the show.
When the Ponds are around, Rory gives the doctor a run for his money
If I may quote the Doctor, She was brilliant. This was my first Clare Corbett performance, but not my last. Many because I have two more Doctor Who audios with her as the narrator.
Well thought out.
The ending was wrapped on perfect in a way you didnt see coming and was the perfect ending also
This is my first one and it was fantastic
It had the prefect wit of the Doctor and clever side jokes that made me laugh when they were used
I thougth this book was fantasic with the way it choose not to follow the Doctors point of view of half the book and by the time the ending came you were attached to the other character more than normal
I am a professional photographer - Kelan Photography - who lives in South Beach. I call my collection "Photography from a Different Perspective." The images I create are formed from the designs and colors in nature. They are somewhat abstract. I always have an audiobook playing except on those days when I take a stress break and go wading through the everglades and take pictures of alligators.
I purchased this book with great trepidation. How could "The Doctor" work as a novel? But it did. Of course,its best to know the characters in seeing them on TV.
She is absolutely spot on with the characters - each had a voice AND a separate accent.
