This review is from: Doctor Who: Pest Control (Dr Who Audio Original 1) (Audio CD)
This is one of three David Tennant era Dr Who Audio's I recently purchased (the other being The Nemonite Invasion and the Forever Trap).
David Tennant does a good job reading this and masterfully switches between voices and accents for all the different characters which breathes some much needed life in to this adventure.
For the story itself - the Dr and Donna find themselves in the middle of a warzone and inevitably get caught between the 2 warring parties - a tricky little situation at the best of times but things are only just beginning to get complicated...
Of the 3 audiobooks I bought, for me this one had the weakest storyline however having David Tennant reading helps a great deal to save it. That's not to say it is bad because it's not and I did quite enjoy it, however it tries to fit a lot of characters in and felt a little rushed on occasion. Consequently characters sometimes lacked a depth and you don't really find yourself caring much about them - the ending especially seemed to get resolved just a teensy bit too easily for my tastes.
A decent enough audiobook to pass the time and I've no regrets in buying it...but not something to write home about either.
