The Doctor, Rose and Capt. Jack v. the living dead

This was a good story, ruined by the narrator, who obviously had no idea that this incarnation of the Doctor was a Northerner, and had him talking with the proverbial plum in his mouth, also made no attempt to make Rose sound like a Londoner. His Russian accents also tend to grate a bit. Wouldn't the Tardis translation matrix mean they wouldn't have noticable accents anyway?

The story itself is good, and progresses well, with some neat plot turns, and was a story I wanted to keep listening to. Justin Richards has the characters well defined, and this would have made a good TV 2-parter. I would have given 5 stars if the narration hadn't been so irritating. I did finish up wondering how many 'decommissioned' nuclear subs are in the condition of the ones in the story. Nice to get a brief mention of Bad Wolf, too.

Probably better with another narrator

Doesn't seem like this narrator has ever watched Doctor Who. The voices are so far off the mark it's really ruining the story for me.
