Always got a book on the go - Love most sci-fi genres, a psychological thriller or apocyliptic tale; or just great fictional writing...
15 stories, 12 of which I loved. 1 I couldn't listen to. In the main the narration is brilliant, especially when Matt Smith or Arthur Darville as both are simply and utterly wonderful to listen to and they read quite a few between them!! Other narrators are good and enjoyable too so well worth the credit to get this.
With 15 stories I won't even begin to provide any overview of storylinras but suffice to say they are mainly excellent.The reason I dropped a star is my issue with choices of female narrators. I've nothing against female narrators doing Dr who, I mean Catherine Tate was so good in the 10th tales that I have relistened to her stories 2-3 times. But in this book there was one narrator in particular who sounded like she was reading a chic lit story - as I was listening I looked the story up and found that it was written by a chic lit novelist, I mean, just why???? after 20 minutes I simply switched to the next story because I couldn't bear to hear her do male voices anymore.
Thankfully it moved straight into a great story read by Arthur Darville and we were back on track.
Well worth getting for the majority of good stuff and I'll be listening to those stories again.
Matt Smith is fabulous, really great narration. Most narrators struggled with Amy's accent. Nice collection of stories for Who fans and those new to the franchise.
this is the best audio book I have loved & I want to see more audio books on the ninth doctor or the eight doctor
I loved it & I would recommend it for people who were big fans of Matt Smith back when he was the doctor.
A waste of time, only one story read by Matt Smith the rest read by people I have never heard of. I found the cover misleading it was not as good as the illustration let's you believe.
Loved the stories. My only slight issue was that I wasn't a huge fan of the one American narrator. I have heard much worse, though. And that was only one story of many and overall the stories were well narrated and very engaging.
"The Lost Season 10 1/2!"
Still can't believe how great this is! Absolutely stunning! The stories are great as expected, but the voice acting shines!
"This is true to the Dr. I enjoyed this immensely."
This was great voice over work with all who were involved. Hours of entertaining stories true to Matt Smith's Doctor.
This is an awesome deal for any doctor who audiobook lover. Listened through this once already going back for seconds now. :-)
"Good and bad"
There where some good stories, some great, some ok, and some not so good. The same goes for the narrators.
Sleepers in the dust was the best of all, with a great story and awesome narration by Arthur Darvill! That story gets 5 stars in all three from me :)
Fun, crazy adventures...that would be my three words.
Basically the ones narrated by Arthur Darvill were excellent! I was pleasantly surprised by his interpretation of the Doctor...he had the 11th doctor perfectly.
Obviously the best characters where the Doctor when performed by Matt Smith or Arthur Darvill....the other narrators were fine but I'm not a big fan of female narrators trying to be The Doctor. However they were all excellent at their craft and I did enjoy their versions for what they were but let's face it you can't beat Matt Smith playing his own Doctor now can you. Also his other voices in the stories he and Darvill narrated were great as well.
If I had been listening on a long trip I would have done it all in one sitting yes, but didn't have an 11 hour period where I could listen at once, but it would be like binge watching the shows.
Just one more thing....the stories were great just wish more in the collection were done by Smith or Darvill.
