Sontaran Showdown

I really enjoyed this audio version of Shakedown, a New Adventure from the days when Dr Who was off screen. Dan Starkey does a fantastic job with accents and portraying all the cast. The narrative cracks along at a good pace and is full of incident and fun while also adding to the 'Who' mythos. Definitely recommended.

Cracking good 7th Doctor yarn

Where does Doctor Who: Shakedown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Plot wise it's a good read. But ... Either my copy missed an entire section, or half of bernies adventure on sectarian was cut in the edit. The entire plot twist of the murdered academic was missing, i only clocked it via references later on... Odd to say the least.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Pace seemed a little fast.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me smile a lot. I can see and hear sylvester McCoy in virtually every Doctor scene.
