Summary

The past is like a foreign country: nice to visit, but you really wouldn’t want to live there. In 2003, Rebecca Whitaker died in a road accident. Her husband, Mark, is still grieving. He receives a battered envelope, posted eight years ago, containing a set of instructions with a simple message: "You can save her."
As Mark is given the chance to save Rebecca, it’s up to the Doctor, Amy, and Rory to save the whole world. Because this time the Weeping Angels are using history itself as a weapon.
Read by Clare Corbett, Touched by an Angel features the Doctor, Amy, and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Beautifullly Plotted, Bittersweet Adventure.

An excellent vehicle for the usually misused weeping angels that shows just how effective they can be when used to their fullest.

The dr, Amy and Rory characterisation is spot on (especially Rory) but they take second place to a well portrayed romance of epic sweep.

Really one to recommend for any fan.

One Of The Best Doctor Who Books I have Heard/Read

Where does Doctor Who: Touched by an Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the best to date. Usually a book based on a TV show is a watered down story that doesn't affect the shows continuum and steers clear of the big villains. This would have made an excellent episode of the series. It personally had an impact on me because I listened to this book, around the time of the Weeping Angels offed Rory and Amy from the show.

Who was your favorite character and why?

When the Ponds are around, Rory gives the doctor a run for his money

Have you listened to any of Clare Corbett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

If I may quote the Doctor, She was brilliant. This was my first Clare Corbett performance, but not my last. Many because I have two more Doctor Who audios with her as the narrator.

Not enough Doctor and the Ponds

The story was okay, but it focused too much on this third character that I really didn't care about. Touched by an Angel is mostly about how he gets sent back in time and lives his life in tandem with his younger self. The Doctor and Amy and Rory show up now and then to keep him on track and prevent him from doing anything he shouldn't that would create a paradox the Weeping Angels can feed off of. That's it, that's the whole book.

As much as the story wasn't what I was expecting, I did have to find out what happened, it just took a very long time for me to get into it. I still didn't really care what happened to the main character (I can't even remember his name, that's how much I didn't care), but I did want to know how everything was resolved. I felt the ending undermined a little bit of Amy and Rory's story arc ending in Angels Take Manhattan, but I find that is pretty common with the Weeping Angels. When they first show up in Doctor Who, they aren't too threatening of a villain, but seem to gain powers and influence throughout the series. Their level of scary is mostly determined by whomever is writing the book/episode. In Touched by an Angel, it's fairly mild.

And Claire Corbett is still not my favorite narrator.
