this audio book is just one of the best!!!!

Having it narrated by David Tennant was great. He did different voices for each character. And the sound effects were great. I have alway love doctor who the tv show. But listening to an audio book of doctor who was as good as watching it on tv. I listened to most of the story in one listen. I could not turn it off. The writer of this doctor who story did a great job. So i gave this audio book 5 out of 5 and i cant wait till i listen to more doctor who audio books.

david tennant is an ace narrator

DT flows from narrating in his native scottish accent to the perfect clipped doctor & even all the additional characters are well done & easily recognisable.
all his doctor who stories are great & i recommend for dr who fans, young listeners (over 8 & with an adult as some are quite scary!) and anyone who likes a good romp. his characterisation of rose & mickey in the earlier stories is delightful.
my only complaint is the slightly OTT sound effects in this story - not necessary & quite scary (yup i'm a scaredy-cat!)

you'll be missed DT
