Great story excellently performed

This is a story they should have filmed for the TV show. Unlike many of the books and audio adventures, the Doctor and Donna remain together throughout the story which enables the writer to make the most of the way they play off one another which really was one of the highlights of the relationship between the two of them.

Catherine Tate's performance is excellent. As you'd expect, she can do a pretty good David Tennant impression and all her other character voices are terrific.

If I have a complaint, it's that "The Forever Trap" should have been longer!

Story isn't the best but Chaterine is brilliant

Where does Doctor Who rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Somewhere in the middle because of the story line of the book, is nice and funny, but could have been better. Although, it could have been in my top 5 if I had to base it on the performance of the brilliant Catherine Tate. She is funny and is great to have the book from Donna's point of view.

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

I would recommend the book to my friends, once again the main reason is Catherine Tate, I cannot stress on how brilliant she is. The story is light and funny at places, and very serious at some, and despite not being the greatest one is still a good way to pass your time.

Have you listened to any of Catherine Tate’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, I had and this once was as brilliant as the others. The only difference there is in the story line. She takes on a different voices of the different characters very well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and in fact I think I did. Not very sure because I have listened to it a couple of times and don't really remember if I had managed to finish it in one go the first time.

Super Catherine Tate

What did you like most about Doctor Who?

The story flowed very well, it didn't get bogged down anywhere

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The nature of being trapped and the Tardis not being an escape route

Have you listened to any of Catherine Tate’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Only heard two and this one is better, that could be due to the writing which made her character more faithful to the tv version

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I did.

Any additional comments?

A good tale that moves at a fine pace, perhaps too much of a variety of alien life. Catherine Tate gives a great performance and listening to her one can visualise the characters.
