Doctor Who: The Lost Angel (BBC) is an entertainingly rolled out Twelfth Doctor story that involves the Lonely Assassins. Over the last few days I've listened to it 3 times and to me it has good replay value. I don't usually enjoy non speaking nemeses on audio, but there's enough going on in this one where its supporting characters and compelling storyline deliver the goods! The Weeping Angels were pretty much backdrop villains. Other than reading out the British written script and calling the sonic screwdriver a "torch" rather than a flashlight, the narrator Kerry Shale (a Canadian) helps to provide a convincing American based adventure. 8/10
This CD package comes with attractive artwork and its disc image is finished with eye appealing glossy paint. The $9.51 CAD total that I paid for it was well worth it!
Doctor Who: The Lost Planet (BBC) in this tale for some unknown reason alien plants start to take root in the TARDIS. American companions Brandon and Alex continue with the Doctor. Nicola Bryant is the reader providing their American accents along with the Doctor's Scottish one. Although a carry on from the first "Lost" episode this was pretty much a standalone adventure. The musical score throughout the entire story is deluxe and gripping. There are no sound effects. Arborites versus the Hirolth - I'll say no more. 7/10
In the car today I have mostly been listening to Nick Briggs who think's that he is Dr No. 9 I don't know if I am convinced or not about this release. The stories are well written and presented. But Rose is sounding like she has a sort throat :-)
The Prisoner of The Daleks audiobook read by Nick Briggs. This is one of my favorite Who novels but I hadn't heard the audio book of it before. Briggs did a superb job with the reading. His Tenth Doctor is not a forced, overwrought impression that sounds like it's trying too hard. Instead, it's more subtle, focusing on a higher tone of voice and capturing the pronunciation and cadence whenever it best suits the dialog.
