The novel is a fantastic read and for the main part the narrator gets it bang on, sometimes however there are words that the narrator simple doesn’t understand and his pronunciation of those words are obvious and jarring. If you can overlook those mistakes as they happen, usually in the English sections, then I recommend this title. If however you are a stickler for the English language perhaps the writer book would suit you best

Not for the tin hat wearers perhaps as the book begins by debunking the moon landing conspiracy and other 'out there' ideas.
The book is very easily listened to and often has the listener thinking 'oh that's interesting' and I'd like me researching in more detail. The NASA conspiracy is a genuine concern to all right minded people in the free world and paints a disturbing picture of cover up after cover up.

Obviously it's all open to individual beliefs but this audiobook is certainly worth a listen whatever side of the fence you sit on.
The performance is first rate and almost makes you feel as though the narrator is talking exclusively to the listener.
Highly recommended

Like the regular zombies run app, I listened to this while on the treadmill and the time flew by. It's extremely well written and had me trying to guess who done it all the time, changing my mind and accusing someone else. It obviously takes its motivation from Agatha Christie crime thrillers and quite easily sits in the same library.

The acting does seem a little amateur at times, but using a small company as six to start this is to be expected and doesn't detract too much from what is an otherwise amazing product.
Highly recommended

It's been 20 odd years since I read the crucible, I'd loved the story of childhood bullies causing mysery to all those around them by simply telling tales. However I'd read it not knowing the historical truth surrounding those events. Now with this book and reading of it the past is brought to vivid life and the true horror of the Salem witch trials is brought uncomfortabley home in all it's bloody gore. A fantastic novel well read. Possibly one of the doctors best ever historical tales

If you could sum up Doctor Who: The Drosten's Curse in three words, what would they be?

Funny, engrossing, silly

What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who: The Drosten's Curse?

The whole book evokes memories of the Douglas Adams era

Have you listened to any of Clare Corbett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Na

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Unstoppable

Any additional comments?

Being wrongly advertised as a 12th doctor story is only mildly annoying in this fun romp. Douglas Adams would surely enjoy this volume as is fondly tries to pay homage to one of doctor whos funniest authrs. Its a slapstick comedy that does little to raise ghe dramatic stakes but despite this, its a very enjoyable listen. Top marks.
