Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum - a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture. While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who claims to know the future - a girl whose predictions are surprisingly accurate. But then the Doctor stumbles on the hideous truth behind the statue of Rose - and Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for... Read by the Tenth Doctor himself, this thrilling adventure features the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television. Also included is an exclusive bonus interview with the author, Jacqueline Rayner, conducted by David Darlington of Doctor Who Magazine.
David Tennant does the voices perfectly and is a natural narrator, though his Mickey is a bit rough.
I'm intrigued and will be looking for other things narrated by him. On top of that, another great Doctor Who story. I like the books, they have a chance to be a bit more intense/gorey. The imagination is better than any CGI and the writer doesn't have to worry about keeping it G rated.
David Tennant (as usual) was perfect reading the story. He used a variety of accents and voices so you can tell which character is speaking. He sounded very enthusiastic and never boring while reading.
Storyline is great, it feels like an episode, not just a book. I love Ancient Rome myself so this was amazing!
All in all, I recommend this to any huge Whovian!
Travelling in his own time stream...
That troubles me...but okay, aside from that, it's delightful, a nice taste of Doctor Who when you've run out of TV shows and the next season isn't starting any time soon. I had a lot of fun with this one, and David's brilliant, of course.
