A Wonderfully Gripping Listen
An enjoyable story with an intriguing nod to the past. Dan Starkey’s wonderful narration is a joy to listen too, and his character portal of Strax is as superb in audio as on TV. A highly recommended listen for anybody with a creative imagination, be them a Doctor Who fan or not.
