Russell Tovey reads this suspenseful story of a merciless hunter whose quest for the ultimate prize puts the Doctor’s life in danger. Sebastiene was human—once. He might look like a nineteenth-century nobleman, but in truth he is a ruthless hunter. He likes nothing more than luring difficult opposition to a planet, then hunting them down for sport. And now he’s caught them all—from Zargregs to Moogs, and even the odd Eternal. In fact, Sebastiene is after only one more prize. For this trophy, he knows he is going to need help. He’s brought together the finest hunters in the universe to play the most dangerous game for the deadliest quarry of them all. They are hunting for the last of the Time Lords: the Doctor!

    " Although I haven't gotten to Ghosts of India, I'm inclined to believe The Doctor Trap is the worst of the Donna-era Doctor Who novels, just because I'm generous like that. Although Simon Messingham tries for cleverness in his twisty adventure featuring a mysterious being who summons the Doctor down to his planet to hunt him, the whole doesn't hang particularly well and the exercise comes off more fake than interesting. Because here's the thing about the Doctor Who I enjoy: it may be goofy, it may change how time travel seems to work in every episode, it may require multiple deus ex machina to solve any given finale, but it has a fondness and respect for its characters and the universal themes shine through its quick sketched alien situations. The Doctor Trap doesn't really seem to show any relationship to that show. Instead the world and the plot is rendered mostly with no message or ideas in mind except for its convuluted game, and the Doctor and Donna act completely unrecognizably (and Donna suffers the undignified companion shuffle-off). Rating: 1.5 stars "

    " I'm enjoying this book because The Doctor is matching wits with a character called Sebastiene. Reminds me of "The Most Dangerous Game" "

    " I read this quite a while ago, it is my least favorite Doctor Who novel. The plot was not well put together and Donna and the Doctor were not written like themselves "

    " O_O. This book was insane! It was so confusing at the beginning but by the end it all worked out. The characters were well developed and I loved reading from both Donna and the Doctors point of view. Any Doctor Who loving fan would enjoy this! "

    " So many Doctor Who books (and I have all the new ones)....a written review is unnecessary for them all. *** actually better than average as far as these books go. "
