Publisher's Summary

The past is like a foreign country: nice to visit, but you really wouldn’t want to live there. In 2003, Rebecca Whitaker died in a road accident. Her husband, Mark, is still grieving. He receives a battered envelope, posted eight years ago, containing a set of instructions with a simple message: "You can save her."
As Mark is given the chance to save Rebecca, it’s up to the Doctor, Amy, and Rory to save the whole world. Because this time the Weeping Angels are using history itself as a weapon.
Read by Clare Corbett, Touched by an Angel features the Doctor, Amy, and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Not enough Doctor and the Ponds

The story was okay, but it focused too much on this third character that I really didn't care about. Touched by an Angel is mostly about how he gets sent back in time and lives his life in tandem with his younger self. The Doctor and Amy and Rory show up now and then to keep him on track and prevent him from doing anything he shouldn't that would create a paradox the Weeping Angels can feed off of. That's it, that's the whole book.

As much as the story wasn't what I was expecting, I did have to find out what happened, it just took a very long time for me to get into it. I still didn't really care what happened to the main character (I can't even remember his name, that's how much I didn't care), but I did want to know how everything was resolved. I felt the ending undermined a little bit of Amy and Rory's story arc ending in Angels Take Manhattan, but I find that is pretty common with the Weeping Angels. When they first show up in Doctor Who, they aren't too threatening of a villain, but seem to gain powers and influence throughout the series. Their level of scary is mostly determined by whomever is writing the book/episode. In Touched by an Angel, it's fairly mild.

And Claire Corbett is still not my favorite narrator.

- Careena "Doctor Who, James Bond, Alexandre Dumas, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Gaskell, but mostly just Doctor Who."

Time travel at it's finest.

One of the best Doctor Who books I've read so far, full of paradoxes and ramifications ( nice word, ramifications...), not to mention the blinovitch limitation effect. Great emotional story too. If you had a chance to go back in time to change things, would you do It? But what could happen? If you're a fan of Doctor Who or like time travel stories, this book is for you.
