Great Voice, Boring Story

Like all companion novels (excuse the pun)the stories widely vary in their quality. Freema's reading is wonderful but the story is boring and has virtually no plot. It sounds more like listening to an old person recant a war story with clif notes.

The Weeping

This was just an okay Doctor Who Story set on a frozen planet with strange Creatures. Mostly typical but okay. Freema Agyeman does a competent job as the material gave no opportunity to do otherwise and the writer does a good bit picking up the Doctor-Martha interactions.

A Little More of Martha

If you could sum up Doctor Who in three words, what would they be?

Another Martha story

Would you recommend Doctor Who to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, if you liked Martha as a companion (or if you like Freema Agyeman as an actress) than this book is a fun supplement to her year on Doctor Who.

Have you listened to any of Freema Agyeman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Freema Agyeman's voice, it was one of my favorite things about her as Martha on the TV show. She does a fairly good job mimicking David Tennant's vocal mannerisms too. You could almost picture another episode in your head!

Any additional comments?

The story-line is fair, but the best part about this audiobook is how it brings the TV show back to life in your mind!

A solid story well told

I was expecting a story about one of the things that happens to Martha during the Year that Never Happened. That's not what this is, but it foreshadows what will happen during Season 3 of the TV show. I didn't find the plot particularly surprising, but it was interesting and enjoyable. Freema Agyeman voices it wonderfully. She has a way of capturing the Doctor's voice without trying to do a David Tennant impersonation.
