Mrs Wolf is a big fan of Dr Who. She knows an awful lot about it. She owns a Dalek made out of spongy material which threatens to exterminate you when you press its tummy and a radio controlled model of K-9 (a source of abject terror for our cat!) She was, therefore, as you can imagine, very excited when this landed on the doormat.
We have listened to it together; she puffed and sighed a lot and clenched her fists during the tense bits and I was mildly bemused (the good Doctor was never quite my thing to be honest!) Frances Barber does a good job with the narration but I'll admit to being a tad disappointed that she reads it "straight" rather than put on a few silly voices. The story is as engaging as tales about worm holes and other such stuff could possibly be and was certainly enough to maintain Mrs Wolf's attention and interest from top to tail. I'm afraid I dozed off a couple of times. I'm at that funny age.
A little treat for the aficionado. A duty to be endured for love by her doting husband.
