Freema Agyeman reads this spine-tingling story of a bizarre museum, extinct animals, and danger for the Doctor.

The Doctor and Martha go in search of a real live dodo, and are transported by the TARDIS to the mysterious Museum of the Last Ones.

There, in the Earth section, they discover every extinct creature up to the present day, all still alive and in suspended animation.

Preservation is the museum’s only job—collecting the last of every endangered species from all over the universe. But exhibits are going missing …

Can the Doctor solve the mystery before the museum’s curator adds the last of the Time Lords to her collection?

Featuring the Doctor and Martha, as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit series from BBC Television.

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

    " I love the TV show then my friend handed me the book and I was amazed to see that someone could get the energy of the show in a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ÏŸ Jess ÏŸ | 1/27/2014

    " This book really brought out the Doctor for me. It had his personality pretty spot-on and made me smile while reading it. It also reeeeeally makes me want a Dodo; it was adorable. It had a lot of cute moments and I can never turn down dinosaurs being brought back to life! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Schmidt | 1/24/2014

    " A very quick read - I read it in about two hours or so - but was enjoyable. I loved the idea that there would be a museum of 'last ones' of every species in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 megan | 12/31/2013

    " i remember not wanting to read this because martha was in it and not rose but i actually loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lela | 12/25/2013

    " I really enjoyed this one. Jacqueline Rayner seems to be my favorite author of the Doctor Who books. The character of Martha really drives me insane sometimes but the Doctor counters that so I can still read it. This would have to be one of my favorites so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/8/2013

    " Wacky fun with extinct animals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cordelia | 10/30/2013

    " Dodos and David Tennant! Anyone who has seen Pirates! Band of Misfits (Pirates! Adventure with Scientists) will love the little ironies of this book. Reader beware, when Martha narrates, she has a habit of getting distracted, which can be rather annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 10/1/2013

    " The first TRUE New Series novel, as far as I'm concerned. All the others were merely a preamble to this wonderful book. There's a depth to this novel that is lacking in most of the previous works...luckily, it's a harbringer of what follows. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 3/21/2013

    " I'm kind of embarrassed to admit reading a tv-based spin-off novel, but you know what? It was actually pretty fun. It's pretty much just high quality fanfiction though, so if you're expecting anything more you'd be disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Floyd | 11/25/2012

    " Tom Baker will always be THE Doctor in my eyes, but the tenth Doctor is really growing on me. I love how these books manage to portray all the moods, mannerisms, quirks and curiosities that make David Tennant's character so damn lovable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 8/14/2012

    " This book was really good i enjoyed it gave a unique perspective of the Doctor being the last timelord as well as the exintict species "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karla | 8/8/2012

    " One of the worst Doctor Who books I've read. One annoying thing - the book kept switching from 1st person to 3rd person for no obvious reason. It was jarring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lily Charman | 5/1/2012

    " quite good, loved martha "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sophia | 3/5/2012

    " Quite good, basic Doctor Who book. No real twists and it's about dodos (as well as other 'extinct' creatures) but what did you expect? It was fine for a light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 12/14/2011

    " A good story, but when Martha breaks character to talk to the listener about her reasoning, it takes away from the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Dunn | 9/12/2011

    " So many Doctor Who books (and I have all the new ones)....a written review is unnecessary for them all. *** once again this is one of the better Doctor Who books, if you're interested in reading them and haven't yet. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sumaya | 5/29/2011

    " I read this when I was 11 and I'm still not over how boring this was. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alison | 4/27/2011

    " I didn't care for the bouncing back and forth between a 3rd person POV and Martha's POV. I would rather it be just one or the other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Britney | 4/16/2011

    " I think I would have enjoyed this more if they didn't keep having sections from Martha's point of view. I would listen and somehow miss the transitions between third and first person. Freema Agyeman, however, is a pretty good reader. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristin | 4/9/2011

    " I could not even make it past the first chapter of this book. The writing style did not feel right and the inner monologue for Martha did not sound like how she would talk. Maybe I will look for the audio book and see if I can get through it that way. "

    " I used the 100 page rule again and had to stop.

    I'm a huge fan of the TV show Doctor Who but the book was written too simplisticly and just didn't have the charm that the actors bring to it. "

    " Writing style is a wee bit uneven in this one. The author flips back & forth between first person & third through the entire story.

    And interesting story, with some nice twists. "
