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.

The Last Voyage is the kind of tale where you think you know exactly what is going on, only to discover halfway through that the situation is actually completely different from what you were expecting. The first episode is not exactly slow moving, but the cliffhanger is a real surprise and gives the story a big boost. The atmosphere throughout the adventure is very eerie and suspenseful and the ship is populated with a number of interesting, well-drawn characters.

I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but David Tennant is a brilliant narrator for the BBC audiobooks as he manages to neatly evoke his era on the show and just generally knows how to bring the tale to life beautifully. It does mean the Tenth Doctor encounters somebody with a Scottish accent wherever he travels to in space and time, but personally I'm fine with that and Tennants narration is just so very engaging.

The Last Voyage is an intriguing and highly atmospheric story with a particularly strong second episode. Definitely recommended.
