"Doctor, never said this before, but fancy a quick trip round my ramparts?"
James Goss was always going to be an excellent choice, given his brilliant script for Dead Air (do check that one out!) and he's arguably written the best of the three brand new Tenth Doctor audios (although they're all pretty great overall). In Death and the Queen, we get a pseudo-historical the like of which we haven't seen or heard this TARDIS team in yet.
Donna becomes a bride-to-be yet again, marrying mummy's boy Rudolph, who's prince to a country that the Doctor has never heard of, only for the castle to be besieged by Death himself on the coronation/wedding day! The story effortlessly balances the comedy and drama, featuring some surprisingly moving moments and outrageous one-liners.
And remember, even the tin dog left him... twice.
