Will Thorp reads this suspenseful story about a sentient house, a ravenous beast, and a family in danger.

Tiermann's World: a planet covered in wintry woods and roamed by sabre-toothed tigers and other savage beasts. The Doctor is here to warn Professor Tiermann, his wife, and their son that a terrible danger is on its way.

The Tiermanns live in luxury, in a fantastic, futuristic, fully automated dreamhome, under an impenetrable force shield. But that won't protect them from the Voracious Craw. A huge and hungry alien creature is heading remorselessly towards their home. When it arrives everything will be devoured. Can they get away in time? With the force shield cracking up, and the Dreamhome itself deciding who should or should not leave, things are looking desperate.

Featuring the Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit series from BBC Television. Download and start listening now!

    " While this book checks off most of my "must-haves" for a Doctor Who story (the Doctor and Martha are recognizable, the monster is believable, the ending isn't too contrived), I did have a hard time with the beginning. I can't imagine why the Doctor chose to stay on Tiermann's World after finding out that the humans already knew of the approaching danger, and already had plans to get out of there. I also couldn't understand why the Doctor wanted to pick a fight with Ernest Tiermann. It seemed thoroughly out of character for him to hang about arguing with an old man when there really wasn't anything for him to do, or anyone for him to save. (Though I did enjoy the irony of Ernest -- the unfeeling, cold-hearted human -- telling our favorite passionate Time Lord that "only humans" have emotions.) Of course, later the true danger reared its head, and things really got interesting. "

    " In this Doctor Who book, I loved the robots. They were filled with life and personality. The Doctor's plan is worth the read alone. "

    " Very average story. Monster coming to almost deserted planet. Eats every piece of nature: plants, animal, humans in sight. The humans are bizarre and a bit crazy. In the end, the planet is saved by some very childish trick. This is very forgettable and average. Even for a Doctor Who book. "

    " Enjoyable read, as is usual with Doctor Who books. Tiermann turned out to be a real nutcase, along with the Domovoi. Doesn't anyone realize they shouldn't make a machine/heart of a dreamhome they want to control basically all-powerful? For being so smart, Tiermann was really dumb. :D "

    " The focus here wasn't on the usual Doctor Who theme of the monsters trying to kill the people, but on the monsters inside the people. I really liked Sick Buliding because of the Servo-furnishings. Who wouldn't want a robot to do everything for you? "

    " So many Doctor Who books (and I have all the new ones)....a written review is unnecessary for them all. "

    " A really good book in the doctor who series. "

    " Just okay. About the dreamhome and attendant robots conflicting with their owners on a hostile planet being threatened by the voracious craw. "

    " This is a good book for the new range. The new range, unfortunately feels kind of limiting for an auhthor like Magrs, whose earlier, and out of print, Doctor Who books were riveting. "
