Summary

The Dead are not alone. There is something in the mist and it talks to them.

In a remote clinic in 18th-century Italy, a lonely girl writes to her mother. She tells of pale English aristocrats and mysterious Russian nobles. She tells of intrigues and secrets, and strange faceless figures that rise from the sea. And she tells about the enigmatic Mrs Pond, who arrives with her husband and her physician. What she doesn’t tell her mother is the truth that everyone knows and no one says: that the only people who come here do so to die.

As good as ever!

Great story with some pleasing twists. Characters are interesting, I found it impossible to stop listening to this longer than usual story. The narrator created distinct voices for each character, easy to listen to.

Interesting idea, but charactes are unrecognizable

The overall idea for the story is a good one, however Goss seems to have written for characters who are totally different from the ones seen on screen. In the book the Doctor appears to really hate Rory, berating Amy for choosing to marry him, and generally treating him far worse than 9 or 10 ever acted towards Mickey. Further, the Doctor make a few homophobic cracks about Rory being a male nurse.

Its odd since I've liked the other stories Goss has written.

On the positive the reader is very good, able to pull off a child and older woman's voice equally well. Her Amy is very good too. Too bad about the rest of it.
