Publisher's Summary

An abridged reading of a BBC Books novel featuring the Doctor and Donna (as played by David Tennant and Catherine Tate in the hit BBC One TV series). India in 1947 is a country in the grip of chaos - a country torn apart by internal strife. When the Doctor and Donna arrive in Calcutta, they are instantly swept up in violent events. Barely escaping with their lives, they discover that the city is rife with tales of "half-made men", who roam the streets at night and steal people away. These creatures, it is said, are as white as salt and have only shadows where their eyes should be. With help from India's great spiritual leader, Mohandas 'Mahatma' Gandhi, the Doctor and Donna set out to investigate these rumours. What is the real truth behind the 'half-made men'? Why is Gandhi's role in history under threat? And has an ancient, all-powerful god of destruction really come back to wreak his vengeance upon the Earth? This title features the Doctor and Donna as played by David Tennant and Catherine Tate in the hit series from BBC Television.

Not my favorite

I've listened to two other Doctor/Donna stories (Beautiful Chaos and Pest Control) and this is my least favorite. I don't feel like any author has really captured Donna's voice and personality in any story I've come across and they compensate by just making her yell at the Doctor all the time. The story didn't keep me very interested either, and the whole Gandhi thing felt weird, kind of fake in a way. It has a low re-read factor.

One of my favorite Doctor Who audio books

I enjoyed the Ghandi storyline. The narrator's characterizations were nicely done. The best moment was the effect that Ghandi has in the final part of the story.

History Lesson

This was an interesting story with some characters plucked straight from our history books. I thoroughly enjoyed it, could've gone a little deeper into exploring the characters though.
