Publisher's summary

"This is the Gyre - the most hostile environment in the Galaxy" 250,000 years' worth of junk floating in deep space, home to the shipwrecked Sittuun, the carnivorous Sollogs, and worst of all - the Humans.

The Doctor and Amy arrive on this terrifying world in the middle of an all-out frontier war between Sittuun and Humans, and the countdown has already started. There's a comet in the sky, and it's on a collision course with the Gyre . . .

When the Doctor is kidnapped, it's up to Amy and 'galaxy-famous swashbuckler' Dirk Slipstream to save the day.

But who is Slipstream, exactly? And what is he really doing here?

A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor and Amy, as played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Who Knows What This Sounds Like?

What would have made Doctor Who: Night of the Humans better?

What would have made Doctor Who: Night of the Humans better? Being able to listen to it would be a good start. You see, I'm a Linux user, and rather annoyingly Audible doesn't work with Linux. I don't know why. Probably something to do with DRM. It's a shame because I enjoy the Doctor Who stories and I think Arthur Darvil is a brilliant actor. You should follow him on twitter maybe. He's great. I'm sure he's great in this but civil disobedeance is only allowing me to give it one star (actually, no, I can be disbediant and lovely, I've given it five - its not the books fault audible don't want my custom) as I can't seem to get the file to play without iTunes or a Kindle. Neither of which I own. I know this review probably doesn't help you much, in fact you're probably quite annoyed by it. One lonely, dyslexic man venting a hollow rage at an unfeeling corporate website. A bit like an embarrasing old aunty making a fuss in a shop over a refund. It's not dignified I'll grant you that, but this is what we're reduced to. It was free, if that's any use to you. I got a free credit for signing up. I was quite looking forward to hearing this story.There's another person reviewing this who seems to hate all Doctor Who audio books and physical books. I quite like them. Sometimes you get them on BBC Radio 4 Extra. Since we're chatting, who's your favourite doctor? Mine is Sylvester McCoy, closely followed by the incumbant Matt Smith. Oh, I'm going off on a tangent now, there's another question...

Would you ever listen to anything by David Llewellyn again?

I would love to listen to anything by David Llewellyn even once. Honestly. I'd pay money to. Happily. I've no idea who he is but I'm sure he's great. Unfortunately Audible haven't built a Linux client so the book I downloaded was uselelss. I got it to open in Audacity but it was a long series of hisses, the occasional beep and just, static. I was worried that there might be some sort of crazy Who monster living in the static. If David Llewellyn wants to turn that into a story he's more than welcome to. Possibly a bit too close to the recent Aliens in the Wifi TV episode, but as long as it's an Audible audio book I'll never know. I hope he sees this. Hello David. Audible are stopping me from paying to hear your work. Would you mind having a chat with them about it? Thanks love.

How could the performance have been better?

I'm sure the performance could not have been better if they tried. I bet Arthur Darvil acted his little heart out. You know, when his character first appeared I wasn't sold on it. Like a milky version of Micky, I thought. But then as the series went on, and the story grew, and Rory developed as a person I began to become very fond of him. I'd credit that to Arthur as much as the writers and directors. I think he gave what could have been a bit part some weight. But then I sell shoes for a living so it's not like I'm the best person to judge the quality of an actor. Other than I guess I always believe him. I never felt he was acting. Which I guess is the real key to acting properly. Like I say, I don't know. I'm a salesman. I sell things. I wish Audible would sell me a book I could listen to... I have some money here... Look *holds up money to the monitor*

What character would you cut from Doctor Who: Night of the Humans?

I'm sure they're all terribly valuable to the plot. I bet David (I fell like we're on first name terms now), yeah, I bet David worked hard with his editors and friends and proof readers to make sure the story was trimmed of fat. I don't know. As I've said Audible don't supply this story in a Linux freindly format. This is a protest at Audible, by the way, not at this book. I'm sorry if this review dents to the success of the book. I wish the book well and I hope everyone who worked on it and is due money from it gets rich. Heck, I'd even give you money to listen to it if it were technically possible. I mean, it is technically possible, it's just that Audible haven't bothered to make a Linux client, so I can't listen to it. *sigh*I really want to listen to this book now.If you're not on Linux and you want to do these guys a favour, buy this book and tell me what it's like. I mean, don't tell me the plot and poil it, and don't copy out chunks of text because that's what DRM is for, just, maybe, I don't know, encourage Audible to develop a Linux client so we can all listen. You know what I'd cut from it? DRM. But I totally understand why you can't do that.

Any additional comments?

I would really appreciate a Linux client for Audible so that I could listen to this book.If you're not going to make one can you delete my account please and I'll find a physical copy of the CD in the shops. And to everyone else, if you're not happy about something in retail you should make a massive fuss like an old lady who had a bee in her bonnet and you shouldn't care if you don't look cool becuase cool people all look the same and do the same things. It's us hopeless nerds that make it interesting.
