Average dr who audio book some bad narration

Just an average book all the stories so short they seem very simplistic. Some of the narration is truly awful. The final story the Scottish accent is cringe worthy.
Not the greatest dr who book I own

Halloween Who

A good little series of scary stories covering each incarnation of the Doctor. The Celestial Toymaker twist was quit good and i didn't see it coming. Kid friendly for all ages althogh it may frighten younger kids, my eight year old self would have loved this. Narration was very good although some of the voice actors sometimes go a little over the top, but like a good panto the kids will enjoy it.
