A new Second Doctor adventure.

Great novel. Mrs Wills does a great job narrating the story, she does a lot of funny voices for all the characters. This adventure involves the 2 Doctor, Polly, Ben, and Jamie, getting involved in the aftermath of the English civil war.The tardis crew are separated in the beginning of the book and must fight to get back to each other. The Doctor and Jamie get arrested on thump up charges, they meet Oliver Cromwell and must convince him not to kill them. Ben gets pressed-ganged on to ship with a mysterious mission to Amsterdam, and Polly get tricked into helping Royal subjects rescue King Charles. It's very complicated plot involving Pirates, assignations, and the trouble of young lovers. Great story, i hope they release more stories like this.

Excellent narration

Books don't always work well as audio books. Too many characters, a performer who lacks the ability to do a lot of voices or has an unpleasant voice...a lot of factors can detract from the listener's enjoyment. This historical Doctor Who adventure could have been a disaster, as there are MANY characters and quick a complex story. I was a little worried that Anneke Wills was chosen just because she played Polly originally. Luckily, she did an excellent job reading Mark Gatiss's novel. The books itself is good, with spies, pirates, and lots of political intrigue set in the days preceding the execution of King Charles.
