The TARDIS materialises on board the maiden voyage of a pioneering space cruiser, travelling from Earth to the planet Eternity. The Doctor has just started exploring the huge, hi-tech Interstitial Transposition Vehicle when there is a loud bang, a massive jolt, and a flash of light. Shortly afterwards, he discovers that nearly all the passengers and crew have disappeared. Unless the Doctor and flight attendant Sugar MacAuley can take control and steer the ship, they could crash-land or keep slipping through space forever. And as if that wasn't enough, something awful awaits them on Eternity.
Written exclusively for audio by Dan Abnett and read by David Tennant, The Last Voyage features the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

David Tennant does a a great job of reading this audiobook and keeping the listener interested and guessing what is going to happen next. We get the Doctor that we know and love, and yet we are not overloaded with so many sub-characters that we lose the storyline. Mr. Tennant's vocal range is fun to listen to, as is his voice in general, but with this performance there is a definite distinction between who is whom so the listener isn't left guessing whom is speaking at any one time. I appreciated this, as sometimes it is difficult to distinguish between characters with some readers.
I recommend this audiobook for Doctor Who fans. It is fun, mysterious and a great listen in the car.
I'm relatively new to the Who universe and when I found out there were audiobook novels available I became interested. I downloaded a couple of them to listen to as I work around my house (when I can't WATCH Doctor Who episodes) and I must say I am greatly pleased. It maintained the feel of the show and helped me imagine a fantastic vision of the story. I will definitely be getting more Doctor audiobooks.
There IS NO comparing The Doctor!
I was very excited to see that my favorite Doctor was narrating his own tale. I was not disappointed either. Mr. Tennant did a fantastic job and I can't wait to listen to him narrate another tale.
I like classic mysteries.
David Tennant makes the book a true adventure! love his voice.
Doctor Who, David is the best Doctor Who to date! you can imagine the story as he tells it.
Fantastic, as usual!
yes, no T.V. so this makes it great!
I will admit It was honestly better than some of the episodes in the whole series run.
Reading the book you'll do the his voice, but with Tennant being amazing as usual he makes every word explode in the space between your ears! The voices, oh the voices he does are so solid and with each one you can almost forget its just him... almost.
Historical & SciFi Book Lover, especially Georgette Heyer, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis (& New Who). Also books for the kids.
Dan Abnett is a superior Whovian author and this is the best of the David Tennant narrated pieces I have heard so far. His narrator voice is a very gentle Scottish accent, which makes it so easy to tell when he is being "The Doctor".
Highly recommend it.
One the top of my list so far.
Hard to say, just an adventure science fiction book. I can't think of anything right now.
He did them all, Rose & The Doctor
I have enjoyed all the Dr Who audio books, very well done narration from David Tennant. I hope audio books adds more Dr. Who adventures, based on the 10th doctor.
