Just Like One of the Best TV Episodes

I have over twenty Doctor Who novels in my library, and this is easily one of my favorites, even above some narrated by one of the "real" doctors. The narrator here made each character very real, I quickly cared about the new characters as well as my old friends. It had a real sense peril that pervaded the entire novel. It was genuinely creepy in spots and had that edge of your seat suspense that many of the episodes did. One of the things that really put this one over the top for me, though, was how it also had the touching moments without ever being maudlin-- again like the best of the episodes. I could easily have seen this as an episode, in fact.

An okay story

I hit the Doctor Who books that looked the most interesting first, now I'm going through them by favorite reader. Nick Briggs is a staple to Doctor Who, he's been there as long or longer than anybody. His Ninth Doctor is spot on, I literally forgot I was listening to somebody other than Eccleston. His Tenth Doctor wasn't bad, but his Eleven was the worst. Sorry. Also, why can nobody get Amy's accent? Yes, she's Scottish, but her accent is much more subtle than Tennant's or Capaldi's. Arthur Darvill does it best, but I'm still holding out for Karen Gillan to narrate something herself.

Otherwise, I thought the story was a bit gruesome and felt it dragged on too long. It should have ended about an hour and a half earlier than it did. The villains feel too much like the Weeping Angels. We've done that already, and to much better effect than whatever these were called.

Brilliant story, so good I listened to it twice.

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

Brilliant, scary and fun!

What does Nicholas Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Whether I would have got this from only reading the book I'm not sure but he brought the artificial man to life and made him seem almost human.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The epilogue, I felt was beautifully done. I can't say any more than that without giving a lot away.
