Oh my! This was amazing! One of the more angsty Doctor Who stories I've come across - but oh it was beautiful and rather profound! Like I said, how I wish it was an episode! I was visualising everything happening as I was listening to it - and I thought the story fitted perfectly along with The Tenth Doctor - I definitely recommend this to fellow Whovians :D

I enjoyed Michelle Ryan's performance a whole lot more than I thought I would. The story itself was fine, but it's a Doctor-only story, and I think I prefer Doctor-and-companion stories overall.

Basically got this out of the library because I couldn't sleep and figured I wouldn't have to think about it, which was true!

Narrated by the woman who plays the character that I always wished we would have gotten more of, and I loved the narration before I realized who she was.

Совершенно случайно он попадает в деревушку в Йоркшире, где перестало светить солнце, пропадают люди и гибнет скот. Беднягу принимают за демона, ведь на дворе 18-ый век. Кое-как открестившись от обвинений, Доктор вместе с новообретенной подругой по имени Charity начинает свое расследование.

Знаю, это сейчас прозвучит абсо

t's October, so it's time to start throwing some good halloween monsters into the reading regimen. Doctor Who : The Rising Night features "the tenth doctor" (my favorite) having to once more save Earth from a dire threat. In this book he's doing battle against a vampire/zombie/siren/banshee-ish alien who rips and shreds like a werewolf. This alien is hell-bent upon taking over the world and ruling it with exactly the kind of leadership style you'd expect from such a creature, so Doctor Who reall ...more
