Format: Audio CD
OK, why buy the CD version of the story for an extra five quid or so? Because it's read by David Tennant, and if you're like me and love the way his voice just bleeds with enthusiasm you'll want to give this a try. He reads the prose sections in his natural accent before effortlessly switching to the voice of the Doctor, as well as all the incidental characters - a cleaning lady, an American admiral, an Indian shopkeeper, a little old lady from Edinburgh... I won't lie and say Rose and Mickey didn't give him a bit of trouble, but in this format the book feels far more like a real extra episode of Doctor Who, perfect for banishing those "end of series" blues!

Format: Hardcover
Steve's been awful busy of late, but I was excited to hear he'd been offered the rare opportunity of one of the latest batch of Doctor Who books to be released in conjunction with the new series.
Feast of the Drowned taps into one of humanity's primal fears - that of death by drowning - and uses it to devastating effect. As soon as the book starts the undercurrent sucks you in, flooding you with... okay, I'll pack it in, I promise.
Steve's also done his research into the workings and politics of the Royal Navy, and the text glows with the authenticity of its setting, providing a backdrop of personal power and military might that is almost as frightening as the mysterious ghostly apparitions and the drowning... Did I mention the drowning?
He also throws plenty of action at the reader. Right from the start this book is on the move, with the loss at sea of the Navy's latest, hugely expensive, technologically advanced warship. We have gorgeous set-pieces such as the Doctor crouched on the bow of a tug shouting directions through the tarpaulin-covered windows to the poor, blind driver within whilst under a hail of bullets from a squad of marines.
This one's right up there with Vanishing Point for sympathetic characters, twists and turns, and edge-of-the-seat thrills. If you only buy one Doctor Who book this year, make it this one!

Doctor Who:Feast Of The Drowned (Audiobook).

Product Info.
Author: Stephen Cole
2xCD
Running time 150 minutes
Read by David Tennant

What's The Story.
When a naval cruiser sinks in mysterious circumstances in the North Sea, all aboard are lost & Rose is saddened to learn that the brother of her friend, Keisha, was among the dead & yet he appears to them as a ghostly apparition, begging to be saved from the coming feast of the drowned.

As the dead crew haunt loved ones all over London, the Doctor & Rose are drawn into a chilling mystery, What sank the ship, & why? When the cruiser's wreckage was towed up the Thames, what sinister force came with it? The river's dark waters are hiding an even darker secret, as preparations for the feast near their conclusion...

Timelord Thoughts.
This story is your typical type of new Doctor Who episode which easily fits into series 2 as author Stephen Cole has written a creepy alien invasion adventure that has some truly chilling moments throughout.

David Tennant's narration was a pleasure to listen to, as he reads this audiobook in his native Scottish accent unless he was reading the Doctor's dialog in which he suddenly slipped into character with effortless ease, his Rose interpretation seemed a little wide of the mark but he nails the Mickey Smith character superbly & injects passion into each of the other characters he performs that are featured here hereby creating a atmospheric mood to the story's narrative bringing the story to life & makes this a audiobook adventure a little gem that's well worth purchasing.

Timelord Rating.
8/10

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 July 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
an original novel featuring the tenth doctor who and his companion rose tyler. as usual with these it runs for 248 pages approx, can be read by readers of all ages, and tells an original story not one based on a tv episode.

the regular cast are well captured on the printed page, all the mannerisms of the characters coming across exactly as you would expect.

the story involves the loss of a royal navy vessel, and relatives of those on board being haunted by their ghosts. but is there more to it than meets the eye? the whole of london faces a deadly threat from beneath the river thames. can the doctor save the day?

grounded in present day london like so much of the early episodes of the new series, this starts very well with an intriguing set up. whilst it does devolve into a more standard runaround of a story later on, there's some decent stuff here. good supporting characters, an old friend of rose's who is strongly characterised thanks to a good subplot about her personal life, and quite an original alien race, who make for some creepy moments.

not the best in the range, but a slightly above average entry

Format: Hardcover
The Feast of the Drowned is the eighth original BBC Doctor Who novel to tie-in with the revived series, this time featuring The Tenth Doctor and travelling companion Rose Tyler.
The story as fast-paced and as accessible as you'd expect from this series, the plot isn't complicated and Stephen Cole has created a tense and creepy atmosphere from the start. His portrayal of the Tenth Doctor, as played by David Tennant on TV, is spot-on; with the right blend of quirkiness, manic energy, fierce intelligence, and the occasional burst of controlled anger at the stupidy and willfulness of his favourite species, humans .

The novel replicates the feel and characterizations of the TV show admirably, focusing as much on personal stories as the science fiction and fantasy. The plot reminded me a little of recent audio story `The Nemonite Invasion'; its story of possessed and `zombified' cadavers returning to life and its nautical setting. This is no bad thing though, as it retains its own character and style, and manages to link in to the TV series without slavishly adhering to continuity.
