Great cover. Brilliant.

The story is well written. Very visual and stunning. You feel as though you’re in the thick of the action. That’s just with the words alone. You factor in the excellent narration, music and sound effects, and you have a fantastic listen.

Nicholas Briggs did an excellent job with the narration. The voice he does for this books doctor (played by John Hurt in the 50th anniversary episode called ‘A Day of the Doctor’) is an excellent impersonation of John Hurt. You really think it’s him. Very well done.

Thanks to great writing from George Mann I got to experience a true Doctor Who story, not some quickly thrown together garbage sold as a Doctor Who story.

The music added beauty to the overall story.

The sound effects made the story relentless, unstoppable and thrilling. It brought to life the dark and gritty moments, and made the story feel real…yes real. The action sequences were just damn near jaw dropping.

As for the characters. I thought the Doctor was written really well. George Mann brought to life Hurt’s character as seen in ‘A Day of the Doctor.’ Cinder was a pleasant surprise as the companion. She played very well off the Doctor, and in my opinion was a total bad ass.

There were some very neat aspects technology wise that I won’t tell you about because… spoilers sweetie.

Get this book, listen to it. You will love it.

4 out of 4 Stars

I would explain the 4 Star rating, but… spoilers sweetie.
