Publisher's Summary

Mandip Gill reads this exciting original adventure for the Thirteenth Doctor

'Witch, you will rise from my throne, for we are due a reckoning.'

The TARDIS arrives in Gaul in AD 451, on the eve of battle between the forces of Attila the Hun and those of the crumbling Roman Empire. But the Doctor soon finds that both sides are being helped by sinister supernatural creatures.

While Graham makes allies in the Roman camp and Ryan is pursued by the enigmatic Legion of Smoke, the Doctor and Yasmin are pressed into service as Attila’s personal sorcerers.

But the Doctor knows there is science behind the combat magicks - and that the true war will pit all humanity against a ruthless alien threat.

Mandip Gill, who plays Yasmin in the BBC TV series, reads this original story featuring the Thirteenth Doctor, Yasmin, Ryan and Graham, as played by Jodie Whittaker, Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole and Bradley Walsh.

Worth every minute and worth every penny

I can appreciate the other people who wrote reviews but I have to disagree with the majority.

The performance of this book I think was good. I won’t say it’s the best ever(but that’s because Mr and Mrs Tennant spoiled me), but I could clearly tell who was talking and when it switched. In the beginning I think it was a little difficult but I think that’s true for every book. It always takes a little bit of time to find the voices for the characters.

I could clearly hear the different main characters and their inflections. The pitch didn’t change much but I’m not going to hold that against her. It would be hard to do a bunch of male voices, just like it’s hard for male readers to do female voices and not giggle when male readers try to do a falsetto.

The subtle changes in cadence and tone, which I think is much more difficult, made it clear and distinct who was talking and how they were talking.

The story is engaging and thrilling.

If you like doctor who, if you don’t mind a bit of zombie and war scenes, you’ll like this book. Please don’t let the poor reviews prevent you from getting this book. I did for a year, and that’s why I’m writing this review.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I do.

Only one voice

Mandip only has her voice and it's very hard to tell who speaking during this book. only get this if you are a true whovian, otherwise your wasting time and money.

Great story. Narration a little hard to understand

The narration of the tentrama characters is a bit hard to decipher at times. Worth the effort though.
