When the Doctor arrives on Earth in the far future, he is horrified to find the planet beset by famine and starvation. England is a barren wasteland, and scientists are desperately seeding the ground to make the crops grow again. But now it seems that something even worse is happening. Karl Baring, the owner of research facility The Grange, has been snatched away in the middle of the night. His sister Katy was with him when he vanished, but is now in catatonic shock - so it is up to the Doctor, with the help of the scientists at The Grange, to investigate. What is lurking under the old bridge, and why is it preying on people? The Doctor must find out, before it strikes again... Written specially for audio by Simon Messingham and read by David Tennant, The Day of the Troll features the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television. '... a great piece of characterisation wonderfully captured by Tennant' - Bognor Regis Observer 'Highly recommended' - Cambs Times.
Lots of Fun
As always, it is a lot of fun to hear David Tennant narrate a Doctor Who story. It's like getting an extra episode with him as the Doctor. His character voices are great. This audio book as with Pest Control uses some sound effects and music, which I think makes the audiobook experience even better. The story is mysterious and creepy and thoroughly enjoyable. I hope we get a least one more Doctor Who audio book with David Tennant as the narrator before he moves on!
For Cold, Rainy Nights...
A wonderful audiobook to listen to when walking around on a rainy winter night. David Tennant draws you into the story effortlessly. The quintessential Doctor!
Great Scary Story!
Excellent Story in the Doctor Who series! Just enough to give you the creeps if you're listening to it at night. David Tennant is a fantastic reader; really gets you into the story. It's worth the 9.95 just to hear David's 'troll voice' ^^ Definetly a favorite for me!
