This is the series that never got filmed

Would you listen to Doctor Who: 10th Doctor Tales again? Why?

These stories are quintessentially David Tennants Doctor, and, when Donna is involved, they are awesome. The dialogue is tight and the action fast paced.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Overall great narration. Catherine Tate is amazing. David Tennant...David Tennant is simply awesome. There are times when he is narrating fast paced multi-character action and dialogue not only in three distinct voices, but three different accents. He switches character and accent seamlessly, without missing a beat. you have to remind yourself he is playing all the characters.

Any additional comments?

Why is River never in these?

Great Stories, Terrible Voices

A great collection of stories, perfect for any Doctor Who fans, particularly those who love the 10th Doctor. The only down side is in the third story, where some of the most awful voices are used to portray some of the aliens. Fortunately they don’t last very long and you can get on with enjoying the rest of the stories in comfort :^)

Incredible and Engaging Stories and Voice Talent

Loved it. Thought Catherine Tate and David Tennant were brilliant. The stories are great. If you are a fan of the Doctor Who series, you will not be disappointed. I thought the 11th Doctor audiobooks couldn't be matched. I was wrong. This was a great purchase that entertained me throughout. It should entertain you as well.

So so

David Tennant did great job; Catherine Tate's reading made me seriously question how on earth she landed the job for series.... And she narrates quite few painful chapters... So so bad. And she's my favorite companion! 😳

Enjoyable Doctor Who Stories

Any additional comments?

I personally really enjoyed these stories. It was fun listening to the 10th Doctor and Donna again. I also enjoyed the stories of the Doctor that did not include a companion. Worth the credit to me.

rating 5 stars most excellent narration

excellent compilation of doctor stories. Captures the classic humor and character interactions. Surprisingly fabulous reading by Catherine Tate. David Tennant was up to his usual superb an worth checking out his other works. Michelle Ryan the surprising performance should be checked into to see how much other reason she has done an overall rating of five stars
