Set between the Doctor's time with Amy and Clara
This is the first Doctor Who novel that I've listened to (through Audible), rather than having read it myself, and as of the day of this review (6th May 2013), Nicholas Briggs' story is far superior to any of the current onscreen season's offerings (so far...), and in my mind would make an absolutely fantastic 2 part story.
The plot, on the whole, feels like a classic series Doctor Who Dalek story, peppered nicely with the racy pace, and emotional depth (yes, I even shed a tear...) of the current generation of Doctor Who, it's twists and turns leaving you guessing to the end - FANTASTIC!
Nicholas Briggs narrates his story superbly, relaying a real sense depth to the main players (this can especially be said of his narrated portrayal of the Doctor himself), and as you would expect his Daleks (via his voice box) sound as effectively menacing as his Dalek do in the current TV show.
I personally liked the use of the minimal ambient music that is played occasionally, and felt it was an effective tool to highlight the contrasting atmospheres presented throughout the story without distracting you from Briggs' heart felt narration.
I would recommend this audio book to fans of Doctor Who (classic and new alike), where Briggs' familiarity of the TV show that he's worked on really shines through in his story and his narration of it.

I am really REALLY impressed at what a good inpersonation Nick does of Matt Smith! We are so used to him as the voice of the Daleks, I was pleasantly surprised at how good he is at being Matt!

The best story yet from Briggs--a great premise!
What about Nicholas Briggs’s performance did you like?
Nicholas Briggs's Matt Smith impersonation is spot on.
Any additional comments?
Normally I'm not worried about what will happen to the Doctor and his companions in a book, but this one has a completely different dynamic and there are some truly harrowing moments of suspense. It also made me tear up several times because I really cared about the characters' tribulations. What I can't understand is--why doesn't Briggs (the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen, etc on tv) write an episode for the television show? From this book, I'd say he is at least as good a writer as Mark Gatiss, who has written several episodes. And surely there is no one more dedicated to Doctor Who!

Awesome story! Awesome Narration!
Excellent book! The Author put a lot of creativity, twists and turns like the TARDIS in the Vortex. The Best Parts & Conclusion were absolutely...well you're going to just have to have a listen, won't you?! Except...trust me...be sure to listen from the first words all the way through until final words to get the complete story! But No Spoilers Here. Nicholas Briggs, Thank you very, very much!
