I didn't get very far in the book. Not sure what's going on with the narrator. Sometimes he would talk twice the original speed for no reason!

I had to take away a star on story for this due to being so bleak. Mostly, it was a great tale, but every now and then the author seemed to feel the need to kill a character (usually horribly) and dwell on the nastiness. But leaving that behind, there's a lot to like here. We've got the Great Fog of 1952, East End gangsters (Doctor Who does the Kray brothers! Sort of), and evil, shape shifting aliens. The aliens in their natural form are hard to picture, as they are so vaguely described--creatures of light and dark with no mouths and a hundred eyes are really all we get. An excellent job of narration from Dan Starkey, who does an amazing 3rd Doctor--not an easy feat!
Definitely a Doctor Who book for grown-ups. Well defined characters and a great sense of place make the story extremely gripping. Gruesome in parts certainly. Once again brilliant narration by Dan Starkey.
Some quite gruesome descriptions of zombies and violent deaths. Other than that I enjoyed the story and could not fault the reader. His different voices for the characters really made it clear who was talking.
