Paul Cornell's novel is read superbly by Lisa Bowerman who manages to perfectly capture each character. The story is also very well-scored with emotionally evocative but not overstated.

The core of the book is superb. Smith is a compelling characters whose struggle with self-identity and struggle fitting in drives much of the story. The romance between him and Joan is very sweet and effecting, while still being mature and appropriate to the age of the characters. Tim is also incredibly interesting as a character, particularly as he becomes the Doctor and you really identify with his plight.

The story suffers from extraneous elements and characters that were introduced, didn't add much to the core story, and weren't properly developed enough for readers to care about. The villains are not bad, but aren't interesting either.

Overall, though, the themes of love, loss, war, identity and the question of what it means to be the Doctor give the story a strong emotional edge and makes it a worthwhile read or listen.

The Last Voyage is a tale of two halves. The first has the Doctor and Sugar McCaulley plodding through an Interstitial transport device (which is modeled after a space ship.) The story really seems to crawl through the first half of the audiobook with only few touches of mystery piercing the long chain of exposition and technobabble that dominate the book. The story picks up the pace considerably in the second half with a far more spooky and compelling narrative.

David Tennant does a good job reading and there are some good moments in this, but you do have to wait a long time for it.

This story has a solid atmospheric beginning as the head of a research effort in a post-Second Ice age in Britain disappears and his sister is left babbling incoherent as a strange monster emerges and members of the research team begin to disappear.

The story builds a great sense of mystery but does eventually become a somewhat standard base under siege story with a solo Tenth Doctor. This is somewhat appropriate given that the tale feels like a follow-up to the Second Doctor Story, The Ice Warriors. Overall, a decent story, if a bit standard.

The Forever Trap brings to a life a superb concept as the Doctor and Donna find themselves tricked into signing a lease for an apartment in a giant apartment complex known as the Edifice where creatures from across the galaxy are being kidnapped and forced together with often tragic results.

It was refreshing to get one of these novels that didn't merely try and tell a Base Under Siege story breaking up the Doctor and the Companion. Instead, we're treated to a great high concept story that's filled with mystery and plays it's story out to the hilt. Plus, it keeps the Doctor and Donna together the whole story and Catherine's Tate's reading really captures the wonder of that relationship. This story captures everything that made that relationship so fun to watch on TV and is a must-listen to for fans of this well-beloved TARDIS team.
