    The audiobook reading was really crap The narrator did very posh voices for both the Doctor and Rose The Doctor with a touch of self important professor and Rose almost constantly bewildered It was so far out of character Jack s accent was very successful either, and the Russians all sounded alike with stereotypical exaggerated Russian accents, which didn t make sense anyway considering the Tardis was translating It would have been much better to read it without different voices.Given the r The audiobook reading was really crap The narrator did very posh voices for both the Doctor and Rose The Doctor with a touch of self important professor and Rose almost constantly bewildered It was so far out of character Jack s accent was very successful either, and the Russians all sounded alike with stereotypical exaggerated Russian accents, which didn t make sense anyway considering the Tardis was t...

    This is probably the worst Doctor Who book I ve read And I ve read a lot of them now Richards seems to have little concept of the Doctor, Rose, or Jack as characters His storyline lacks focus and direction His efforts to build suspense are misguided and frustrating A...

    An interesting premise, and I love both Rose and Captain Jack, but again I struggle to see Eccleston s doctor here A bit too generic.

    A Russian set adventure in which the Ninth Doctor struggles to overcome the stark gloom of an abandoned Soviet village where some villagers have died in bizarre fashion The story was not without interest, but I struggled to get into it None of the background characters struck me as likeable enough for me to be overly concerned if they survived or not Captain Jack spends a lot of time running about, dodging blob monsters but lacks his characteristic charm or sexual ambiguity.The true villains A Russian set adventure in which the Ninth Doctor struggles to overcome the stark gloom of an abandoned Soviet village where some villagers have died in bizarre fashion The story was not without interest, but I struggled to get into it None of the background characters struck...
