Publisher's Summary

The TARDIS lands in 22nd century Africa in the shadow of a dormant volcano. Agri-teams are growing new foodstuffs in the baking soil to help feed the world's starving millions ¿ but the Doctor and Rose detect an alien signal somewhere close by. When a nightmare force starts surging along the dark volcanic tunnels, the Doctor realises an ancient trap has been sprung. But who was it meant for? And what is the secret of the eerie statues that stand at the heart of the volcano? Dragged into a centuries-old conflict, Rose and the Doctor are soon elevating survival to an art form ¿ as ancient, alien hands practice arts of destruction all around them. Featured are the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.

Not a good narrator

Would you try another book written by Stephen Cole or narrated by Don Warrington?

I like the works of Stephen Cole in general, but I would not willingly listen to another work narrated by Don Warrington.


Would you recommend Doctor Who to your friends? Why or why not?

I love the Doctor Who stories, they are fun, exciting and usually a great listen. This one story might be good, but it should be redone by another narrator. Tennant would be great!


How could the performance have been better?

The voice of the narrator is screeching, annoying, and lacking the characteristic life of the Doctor and Rose. It's just annoying to listen to, and I would rather read the book than listen to this.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Doctor Who?

I couldn't really pay much attention to the story, as I just wanted it to finish.


Any additional comments?

Judging by the other works of Stephen Cole, this is probably a good story on the whole, but it doesn't shine through the poor narrating. Not all the actors of Doctor Who are great narrators, and it's unfortunate that this wasn't picked up before the whole story was narrated and the cd produced.
