Eleven Doctors, eleven months, eleven stories: a year-long celebration of Doctor Who!
The most exciting names in children’s fiction each create their own unique adventure about the time-travelling Time Lord. Thousands of years ago, Time Lords built a Prison for the Kin. They made it utterly impregnable and unreachable. As long as Time Lords existed, the Kin would be trapped forever and the universe would be safe.
They had planned for everything… everything, that is, other than the Time War and the fall of Gallifrey. Now the Kin are free again and there’s only one Time Lord left in the universe who can stop them!
Author Neil Gaiman puts his own unique spin on the Doctor’s amazing adventures through time and space in the eleventh and final story in the bestselling 50th anniversary series!
I’m fairly certain that I’ve read this one before or I am having the biggest case of deja vu ever! This was so much fun to listen to, with Peter Kenny doing a wonderful narration of Neil Gaiman’s story. I look forward to anything Doctor Who that Neil Gaiman does and this story is a perfect blend of the TV show I’ve come to love and of Neil’s amazing writing. It’s super short and a very quick listen (the Kindle copy is only 45 pages long) and it was the perfect breather audiobook after a heavy audiobook listen.
“Have you always been like this?”
“A madman with a time machine.”
“No. It took me ages to get the time machine.”
I’ve listened to a few Doctor Who stories in the past and I might be biased, but I think this is the best one of the bunch. The Doctor comes across just as I see him in the show (this one being Matt Smith’s version) and Amy Pond was fun, too.
Peter Kenny does a fantastic narration, though he almost comes across more as David Tennant’s Doctor than Matt Smith’s … BUT it was still so much fun to listen to. Amy sounded like Amy, even though she wasn’t in the story a lot, and the whole story felt very much like any Doctor Who episode, almost like watching it right on TV!
