Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 10 April 2010
In this exclusive audiobook story the 10th Doctor finds himself in the 18th Century village of Thorton Rising, where the local population find themselves under attack from a vampiric alien who has blotted out the sun.

'The Rising Night' is solid enough Doctor Who fare, utilising the usual mix of horror and science fiction that makes up much of the series lifeblood. Despite its professional execution however, it has to be said that for the most part this is highly predictable fare. Doctor Who has tackled vampires before, and there's nothing to make this particular vampire-in-all-but-name alien stand out. Similarly the solo 10th Doctor meeting up with a one-off plucky female companion, who inevitably just happens to be yearning for her horizons to be expanded, is a little too obvious.

Michelle Ryan proves to be a decent enough reader, offering an enthusiastic take on the material, though her portrayal of the 10th Doctor only emphasises the character's gradual descent into a caricature (and yes - he's "so, so sorry").

Not ham-fisted enough to be a bad Doctor Who story, but not original enough to truly excite, 'The Rising Night' offers comforting if slightly stale adventure.
