Publisher's Summary

Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum; a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture. While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who claims to know the future; a girl whose predictions are surprisingly accurate. But then the Doctor stumbles on the hideous truth behind the statue of Rose, and Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for. Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

This is only my second Doctor Who, the first was written by Ness. I really enjoyed Ness's Story, so I thought I would try more. I was surprised in how simple and complicated the plot was. So, many parts of it seemed silly and predictable, while the constant complicated traveling through time, was annoying.

According to the author in the interview after, this is suppose to be Kiddie Sci-Fi. I did not realize that. Ness's story did not seem so kiddie, so I will try more from the Doc, but I will avoid this author. She did not impress me with her story and her interview, made it sound like she was an inexperienced housewife who gave this a shot.

Be Careful What You Wish For

Alright... I admit it... I'm a long-time fan of Doctor Who. (The requirement for full disclosure has now been satisfied)
When I downloaded this book, I was expecting to hear Billie Piper reading for her character Rose Tyler and David Tennant reading as the Doctor and narrating. This was not the case. My disappointment however was short-lived; David Tennant's reading of "The Stone Rose" is, quite simply, wonderful. The voices of Mickey and Rose are clearly identifiable with the characters in the BBC series. I especially enjoyed hearing David Tennant play the secondary characters.
If you're a fan of The Doctor, the story follows the established formula (more-or-less) although Rose is not the typical Companion but then again the Doctor is not the typical Doctor either.

The Stone Rose

if you love the 10th Doctor, you'll love this. The story does have its weaknesses, but it is amazingly brought to life by the narrator. Mr Tennant shows his talent for voices and throws himself into this much the way he does on screen. He has some trouble with one or two characters, but all is forgiven with the 'villain of the peace'!
And, of course, no one is better at the Doctor, than the Doctor himself.

Soooo Very Doctor Who!

I love this book and have listening to it a number of times! I am an avid fan of Doctor Who and know stories outside of the watchful eye of the TV writers can miss the mark, but this has not left me wanting - except for more.

Jacqueline Rayner really knows her topic and her characters. I could easily be watching this as a television episode of Doctor Who.

David Tennant nails the characters - obviously his own rendition of the Dr is easy but he switches so effortlessly between Rose, her mum, Micky and a bunch of new characters, intermingled with his own Scottish narration. He is great at keeping a consistent voice for each which makes it so easy to keep track of the story.

There is also a bonus interview at the end with Jacqueline Rayner which is insightful, though the quality of the audio is a little "can-like".

It's only a few hours so is great for a lengthy drive in the car (or a really bad traffic jam). It will make the time pass quickly.
