Slow build to a great end

Would you listen to Doctor Who: The Clockwise Man again? Why?

I would probably not listen to "The Clockwise Man" again. I tend not to reread books, and I didn't find this story compelling enough to break that habit.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The end was satisfying in that typical Doctor Who sort of way. Revelations were had, sacrifices were made, and the baddies were defeated.

What about Nicholas Briggs’s performance did you like?

Nicholas Briggs has a very distinctive voice and he brings a lot of life to the story. He is clearly mimicking Christopher Eccleston's voice when he voices the Doctor, which is good for the most part, but sometimes comes off a bit odd.

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

The second half of this book is great! It has tons of action and the foreshadowing and revelations are flawless.

Any additional comments?

It was early days for the new series when this book was published and Rose's character doesn't feel as solid as it should be. Her thoughts and actions in the first half of the book could have been done by any teenager. She isn't quite the Rose we know and love in the TV show. Her characterization solidifies in the second half of the story.

The first half of this book is slow, but the story needs the buildup for the ending to make sense.

Really good story

I enjoyed this so much. Nicholas Briggs is a fantastic narrator (some of my favourite Doctor who audio books are done by him) and he does Christopher Ecclestone so well. It was nice to have a 9th doctor audiobook. The story is really good- like a murder mystery.

Nicholas Briggs brings the NInth Doctor to Life.

If you could sum up Doctor Who: The Clockwise Man in three words, what would they be?

Classic Ninth Doctor.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Doctor.
The Ninth Doctor is my favourite doctor and I was delighted to hear Nicholas Briggs bring him to life in this audiobook. I completely forgot I wasn't listening to Christopher Ecclestone in the role because Nicholas Briggs' version is so perfect.

The brilliant thing is that he is also excellent at the narrating (different voice) and doing all the other characters too. It was like listening to a multi-actor performance - only better.

I wish there were more of Nicholas Briggs doing Ninth Doctor Who audiobooks.

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

I have. I just wish there were more of him doing the Ninth Doctor. I would buy them all if there were. He is so good at this role.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I wouldn't because Nicholas Briggs as the voices is what makes this so brilliant and that would be lost in a film.

Any additional comments?

Please, please, please somebody employ Nicholas Briggs to do LOTS and LOTS of audiobooks as the Ninth Doctor - he is superb and there are probably many fans like me who would like to have more stories about the Ninth Doctor and this is the best way for us to have them.
