    "Excellent"

    Great adaptation of a book of short stories from the companions' point of view. Twelve stories for 12 Doctors for fans of the entire run, or newer fans wanting a glimpse of the "whole." Some stories are better than others, but all are a good "read."

    Story
    "The Twelve Doctors."
    Would you listen to Doctor Who: 12 Doctors 12 Stories again? Why?

    Yes. Because I'm indicted to all things Doctor Who.


    What other book might you compare Doctor Who: 12 Doctors 12 Stories to and why?

    Any great omnibus of some of my favorite Sci-fi show.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I wish more former companions could of done more of the narrations, or better still some of the former Doctors.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of the stories were great, some were bad. But I enjoyed listing to all of then.


    Any additional comments?

    The only stories I didn't like we're the stories concerning the first and fifth Doctors. The rest of the stories were wonderful.

    "Some good, some not so good"

    12 stories, 12 authors, 12 narrators. Hard to rate them as a group. Enjoyable listen, on the whole. A couple of mediocre stories and narrators, but several good ones, too.

    "Nice collection of stories."

    I'm not good at reviews, but I can say with certainty that this set is worth listening to. I enjoyed every story. The only way it could have been better is if it had been read by the actors.

    "Love the various stories"

    As I said, good variety, but could use some of the theme song. however it was a good offering of tales and the readers got the vocal mannerisms down to a tea. all you need was the theme songs from each generation's doctor between the tales.

    "Good diversion"

    As a way of re-experiencing the many Doctors, the book is great. As an introduction to the Doctor Who universe, I think it's less effective: a Doctor Who novitiate would be better served, in my opinion, by focusing first on a few adventures involving a single Doctor before branching out.

    The stories here are somewhat uneven, as are the narrators. The ones that were most resonant for me were the ones for the 11th and 12th Doctors (stories by Neil Gaiman and Holly Black). My least favorite was the one for the first Doctor: I just can't picture William Hartnell with a prosthetic hand. Still, if you're already a Doctor Who fan and want to spend 12 hours being entertained, this will fit the bill nicely.

    "SPACE IS BIG, TIME IS BIGGER"

    TWO TIME LORD HEARTS
    I love most things Science and Science Fiction. I read fairy tales, tall tells, children's sci-fi, teen, soft, hard, even gay sci-fi. I have never known much about Doctor Who. I have listened to a few short books, but still was lost. This seemed like a good way to figure him out. I also bought a book, called WHO OLOGY. I bought the book after listening to a couple of stories, because my interest was peaked. Buying the book is not necessary, but could help. I think it is hard for Americans to wrap their heads around this character, more so than the English, because of the difference in cultures. In America, I believe we want things to be more black and white and we want to totally understand why something happens, Who did it, and how it happened. In this series, Doctor WHO, is an enigma, and remains so at all times. You are to never know exactly who he is or what he is. This series, which is a pretty good collection of stories, is a good way to better understand him. I need to also mention that most stories run toward YA.

    Here are some things I have learned:

    TIME LORDS
    Doctor Who is a Time Lord
    They are not human
    They are from a different planet
    They regenerate, thus 12 different doctors, but the same doctor
    Who, is the last Time Lord
    There are other Time Lords and some are not nice.
    Who is not a doctor of medicine
    Who knows medicine
    The doctor does not remember how old he is.
    Some say he is 759 years old, some 909 and some even older
    He is eccentric and vain YOU ARE SMART, NOT AS SMART AS ME, BUT WHO IS

    TARDIS
    Looks like a blue police box. Used to call the police in London if your in trouble.
    Inside it is enormous, with lots of rooms, several libraries, etc.
    Is a living entity
    Is a space ship
    Is a time travel machine
    Breaks down a lot

    MONSTERS
    There are lots of bad guys in the universe. Daleks seem to be the worse. They seem to be creatures who live in armored bodies. The have servants, such as: Robomen, Orgrons and Pig Slaves, to name just a few. Dinosaurs show up often. The Silurians are not aliens. They're Earth-liens. They used to own our planet and are reptilian.

    HE WAS AS DRY AS A GOOD MARTINI
    Most of these stories are good to better and none were bad. The narrators are all professional with the exception of one author who reads his own. Ness's story was my favorite, but I am also a fan of his writing. If your wanting to learn about the Doctor and the series, this is a good way to go, but you will never know everything.

    I WOULD BE JEALOUS OF ME, IF I WASN'T ALREADY ME

    Story
    "I thought this might be a risk"

    I really wasn't sure if I would enjoy Doctor Who in book form, or in audiobook, more specifically. I also wasn't familiar with the earlier doctors and was afraid their stories might not resonate for me.

    I'm happy to say I was pleasantly surprised throughout. I made myself put at least a say between stories, and I recommend that, because it did help separate the individual stories and doctors. But yes, there was the same feeling of wonder, magic, and exhilaration as the show provides. (How strange to be relieved that a book lives up to screen!)

    11 is my favorite doctor, and I was waiting to savor that story, but in truth, I think 10 was the truest to character. 12 was pretty spot-on too, with the sense that Capaldi carries of having some deep secret to forgive or be forgiven for.

    All in all, there wasn't a single story I felt cheated by or disappointed in. They are 12 excellent stories, and I'll be looking for more of the Doctor Who audiobooks.

    Very cleverly some of the stories are made extra "realistic" by actually being put in a context with what you've seen on tv

    A family of doctor who fans (7, 10 year olds) and we loved it, listening in silent suspense, funny moments and a fair amount of running!
