1.0 out of 5 stars Struggled to finish this one. Quite boring., 7 Oct. 2009
This review is from: "Doctor Who": The Rising Night: (Audio Original) (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
The story could have been all right, I guess, but I didn't much like the way it was read. Michelle Ryan's voice got on my nerves for sone reason. Nothing really stood out in the story to gain my interest (though on paper it sounded like it would be good) and I just felt it was something of nothing really. Maybe it would have been good if it had been read by someone else, but as it is, it just felt tedious to listen to, and even though it may have been much better if the reading had been done differently or with a different voice, it still would not have been an outstanding and memorable story. In fact, I tried quite a few times to get to the end of this story without falling asleep, and after the 5th attempt, (five nights later) gave up and forced myself to stay awake to listen to the end, but still cannot recall exactly what happened, and usually some of these stories are so riveting that they keep me entrhalled right to the end and then I spend a few moments basking in the memory of them, but this one was so uninteresting it really bordered on boring.

Basically, dull as ditchwater. - Should have got Catherine Tate, or Russell Tovey to do the reading. The end result may have been totally different then. Michelle Ryan just rushed through it at times, with a very monotonous voice.
Nothing like the brilliance of The Forever Trap, which was read perfectly by Catherine Tate. That one was great. This, I'm afraid, is just a great big flop.
