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.
This particular novel had everything a multi-episode arc of the TV Series has. Intriguing characters, fun twists and hilarious Doctor moments. I truly enjoyed it and look forward to more Who novels.
Ms. Moffett did a SPECTACULAR job of narrating the story. Her work was well varied from character to character to bring each one to life and she did an especially good job of holding to Mr. Tennant's characteristics when she performed the conversations of The Doctor. I look forward to hearing her narrate more tales of The Doctor.
True to form.
The story feels very "Doctor Who". The pacing is right and the reader (listener) keeps just a few seconds ahead of the story, which is the way it should be for optimum suspension of disbelief.
Georgia Moffett is excellent at the voices and accents of the characters, including the David Tennant Doctor (maybe it helps that he is her husband).This is the first one by her, but it made me want to buy more.
The third act twist, and double-twist, and triple-twist were such classic Who that it really felt nostalgic.
Married. Mother. Student. Full-time job. 33 years old. Doctor Who fanatic. Not necessarily in that order.
The world Blythe creates in this novel is completely believable and I found his original characters realistic. While this novel isn't particularly scary, I did find the depictions of the Autons actually horrific, something that was not possible to really convey in the live-action show. This book has a strong storyline, good characters, just a hint of timey-wimeyness, and Georgia Moffett nails the characters' voices. It is good, clean, Doctor Who fun!
Moffett's voice characterizations. I hope she does more of them.
When the boy remarks about his mom's dead boyfriend and the part about lady with the hypercard frozen in ice.
Moffett's Doctor was perfect and all the rest of the characters were entertaining.
There were, but I can't think of them right now and I don't want to give anything away either.
I liked the BF audios, but these BBC creations were new to me. I wasn't too sure about the topic either, but I must admit that this one made me hungry for more. Great filler until the Doctor returns to the air. I am so glad I started with this BBC audio first.
Read by Georgia Moffet, this story was an exciting and tense adventure featuring the Doctor and some long-time nemeses.
Moffet is a marvel with accents and her Doctor is spot-on. Her story telling was lively and wonderful.
The Doctor, of course.
I laughed out loud several times. There's one line by the Doctor in particular, but I don't want to spoil it.
I couldn't wait for the next season for more Doctor Who. Next time, I will consider my choice more carefully. There was nothing bad about the book, it just didn't meet my expectations.
