Any recommendations from folk who already have these audiobooks?
The international postage practically doubles the cost of some of these. Still should be a good deal.
(A bit of price comparison - going to Book Depository (postage "free") "The House of Winter" is $8.73, "The Sins of Winter" is $13.42, "The Memory of Winter" is $8.16. So that is $30.31 for 3 of the 11 titles in the 12th Doctor bundle. So if that is representative, the whole cost would be $111 including postage. The 12th Doctor bundle is $42.12 plus postage. So, even with the international postage it is quite a deal less.)
Placing all 6 in my basket total cost is $230.40 (including the $8.37 per order charge and $90.18 shipping).
Decided to go for all but the tie-in bundle. That cost was $202.16 (including the $8.37 per order charge and $77 shipping). Now all I will need is time to listen to these and all my other Big Finishes purchases. (Their calculation is an extra 141 hours needed to listen to these.)
I don't own them all so can't comment on everything but I do have everything in the Past Doctor bundle and with the exception of Corpse Marker they are all very very good. Even then Corpse Marker is the missing link between Robots of Death and the magnificent Kaldor City audio series, so is worth getting for that reason alone.
10th Dr bundle - I have read all the books and they were good enough, but nothing you couldn't live without. Can't comment on the audiobook adaptations as I have never heard them
11th Dr bundle - don't know any of them so I bought this because it seemed good value
Tie in bundle - Human Nature and Shakedown are top notch, don't know about the other 2
12th Dr bundle - The Winter stories are good enough, but again nothing you couldn't live without. Don't know the full length novels.
Conclusion - Past Dr bundle is the best of the bundles available, (based on the ones I am familiar with)
