5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Eastern Promise - a review of hardback AND audiobook as Amazon have listed them as the same item, 4 Jan 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who: Ghosts of India (Hardcover)
Mark Morris has delivered another cracking story for the BBC range of original Tenth Doctor novels. Along with his companion Donna Noble, the Timelord finds himself at the centre of a series of mysterious events in post-war India.

This adventure is one of the slower ones in the series; however, Morris gradually builds up a sense of foreboding and intrigue which pays dividends once the forces behind the mystery are finally revealed. Although it is not as action-packed as some of its predecessors, Ghosts of India is a thoughtful and intelligent portrayal of life in a war-torn British colony which is about to be abandoned by its masters; add a famous historical figure, sinister alien interlopers and The Doctor and Donna's feisty relationship, and you have a gripping story for all ages.

Now that The Eleventh Doctor - to be played by Matt Smith - has been unveiled, it will be fascinating to see how he is portrayed in the BBC books, and exciting that Doctor Who will most definitely return...

The audiobook, read by David Troughton (son of Second Doctor Patrick), is abridged but still cohesive; Troughton does a mean David Tennant/Tenth Doctor impression and the story flows well.
