this narrator is horrible at mimicking the doctors accent. its unintelligible and sounds much to gruff. would rather have a generic male voice than what it became. seriously upset considering returning it but the book might actually turn out good.

Eleven Doctors, eleven months, eleven stories: a year-long celebration of Doctor Who! The most exciting names in children's fiction each create their own unique adventure about the time-travelling Time Lord. Thousands of years ago, Time Lords built a Prison for the Kin. They made it utterly impregnable and unreachable. As long as Time Lords existed, the Kin would be trapped forever and the universe would be safe. They had planned for everything... everything, that is, other than the Time War and the fall of Gallifrey.

I'm not familiar with Neil Gaimans other work but can see why he's so well known. doctor who new age purists might be upset at the climax of the story. but its important to note when this story came out and why it did.

this story was engrossing and had quite a few well established characters. my only complaint was loosing track of whom was speaking. the narration switches from first to third person inexplicably at times, but i believe this is a source issue and not a problem with the narrator.

This book was horrible. the plot was weak, predictable with the ending known pretty much instantaneously. i found it the audio equivalent of the mannequin episode without the nostalgia or new who excitement.

this was a really well rounded book. gold pacing tension and well developed characters. a little short, but in doing so manages to never be boring.
