Quotes & Awards

  • “A dark, brooding novel that plays on some very instinctive human fears, both physical and emotional. Drowning. Jealousy. Love. Grief. It’s a novel that is firmly grounded in the world of the new series.”

    " Ten, Rose, and some creepy aquatic aliens. Good times! It's actually the best 'Who' book I've read- the plot is really good, the imagery is lovely, and their voices are spot on. "

    " I've never really read "book expansions" of TV and movie series. I thought I'd give this audiobook a shot. It was pretty entertaining, so I may pick up other books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hykel | 1/31/2014

    " Audio book. Once again D.T. reading. Great story and a little creepy as Dr. Who should be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zandra | 1/28/2014

    " David Tennant's narration makes this story worthwhile to fans of the show, but if you're not a fan or not going to listen to his reading, don't bother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 1/23/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susanne | 1/17/2014

    " I enjoyed this - very interesting story - despite the Ten/Rose/Mickey angst (a situation of which I am not a fan). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jaime | 1/9/2014

    " Really didn't like this one i had to force myself to finsh it.The plot was all over the place. "

    " mmmm, well it was better than Resurrection Casket. And once again, it is David Tennant doing the narration. I don't really remember much of the plot... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Orphal | 1/5/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alice | 12/29/2013

    " Just not my style really! Maybe I'm a bit old to be reading this kind of book. Also found it a little hard to follow as it was dialogue and action-heavy - very like a screenplay. I can imagine it would work well as an audio book, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla | 12/27/2013

    " the best of the doctor who books I've read so far. Victims of a sunken military ship appear to loved ones trying to entice them to join them. "

    " I listened to the audiobook which already adds an extra star to my review :P David Tennant gave a great performance - I particulary liked his Mickey. The story itself is maybe not as memorable as The Stone Rose but still fun. I really liked the way Rose and the Doctor's relationship was portrayed. "

    " Loved the ghostly aliens, and the Doctor was as snarky and adorable as ever. Tennant is a fantastic narrator, too. He flips between accents like magic, and he's got the way Rose talks perfectly. "

    " Better than The Stone Rose, although the plot wanders around a bit. Stellar performance by the sonic screwdriver. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Vandrew | 6/9/2012

    " Now, this is more to my liking. A pure adventure with a pinch of horror. As a bonus, we get an interesting look at Rose's and Mickey's relationship. Also, there is a bunch of secondary characters we actually cared for. And of course, Jackie in her most formidable! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy Nowak | 3/11/2012

    " Not particularly amazing writing, but a fun read more-so as fan fiction because I am obsessed with the TV show. It was entertaining, but not as a stand-alone book. "

    " This isn't what you read if literary swooning is what you seek. But it IS pure fun, sweet predictability, pure adrenalin and a story that has one cheering for another Dr. Who success. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 7/7/2010

    " My favorite Doctor Who outside of the television series so far. The beginning is a bit slow and confusing, but once the action starts up, it's brilliant!
    If you love the Doctor, listen to it!

    " I'm totally agree with Noria, so I've coped her review:

    "I didn't like it as much as "The Stone Rose", I can't really say why. I still enjoyed it and it is great fun to listen to David Tennant."

    That's all!
