Publisher's Summary

The Chelsea Flower Show - hardly the most exciting or dangerous event in the calendar, or so Doctor thinks. But this is Chelsea 426, a city-sized future colony floating on the clouds of Saturn, and the flowers are much more than they seem.
As the Doctor investigates, a familiar foe arrives, and the stakes suddenly get much higher. The Sontarans have plans of their own, and they're not here to arrange flowers.
Available exclusively on download, look out for The Krillitane Storm and Autonomy with more exclusive unabridged readings to come.

Fun listen, well worth a credit

I was quite excited to see these lengthier Doctor Who novels that were recently released, The Taking of Chelsea 426 among them. The story contains your classic bad guys and a spot-on Tenth Doctor. When the narration began, I was a bit nervous about how well Christopher Ryan was going to be able to voice the Doctor, as he sounded a bit droll. But when the Doctor showed up, sure enough, the voice and inflections were spot-on.

The story was developed well enough to keep me going with it, but not so complicated that I couldn't multi-task while I listened.

Overall, an entertaining listen, well worth a credit. :)

Awesome Narrator

I was very impressed with this narrator and his ability to get the 10th Doctor voice. I had to remind myself a couple times that it wasn't David Tennant reading it.

The story was also good. Better than I'd anticipated - nicely plotted, kept me interested the whole time. The companion-style characters were good and contributed to the story positively (not just running around yelling for the Doctor to save them). After all the descriptions of the Sontarans vs the Rooten, I want to go watch some more of the old Doctor Who's to learn more about the Rooten (or however that's spelled).

Fun listen, great narrator. I hope they get him for more Doctor Who books.
