Publisher's Summary

Camille Coduri reads this brand-new novelisation of the Ninth Doctor’s debut TV adventure. 
"Nice to meet you, Rose. Run for your life!"
In a lair somewhere beneath central London, a malevolent alien intelligence is plotting the end of humanity. Shop window dummies that can move - and kill - are taking up key positions, ready to strike. 
Rose Tyler, an ordinary Londoner, is working her shift in a department store, unaware that this is the most important day of her life. She’s about to meet the only man who understands the true nature of the threat facing Earth, a stranger who will open her eyes to all the wonder and terror of the universe - a traveller in time and space known as the Doctor. This is the story that relaunched Doctor Who for the 21st century, novelised by showrunner Russell T Davies from his original script.

Brilliant!

The book itself was exactly what I expected: chock full of extra details which made me happy as a reader (listener?), but also gave new layers of meaning to the episode when I went back and watched it again after having ‘read’ this book. Because I am that kind of reader. And honestly, some of the details involved actually make the episode a lot more heartbreaking. Clive, my man, I am so, so sorry. Mickey, my dude…..I am so sorry.

If you’re looking for a gentle introduction into science fiction, or into the general Doctor Who franchise, I really would recommend this audiobook or the novel itself, which I will be acquiring when I have the space to do so. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, the detail, and the denouement of the novel.
