Nazis. Ace. Cybermen.

Interesting combination of foes.
Sophie is actually a really good voice actor. However, I had a chuckle when she accidentally made Sylvester McCoy's doctor sound German... a rare error.
Towards the end of the story when the action hots up and due to the growing number of German army characters, additional concentration is required to work out who reports to who, and to follow the German characters storylines.
Worth the read for any doctor who fan.

Not The Best Narration

The reader is not especially effective. Considering the material, especially the early section,a male reader would have carried it more effectively.

Great story from the Seveth Doctor

A great detailed account of one of the Seventh Doctors many adventures. Great action, story line and large cast of characters keeping the Doctor on his toes, but finds the time to save the earth, as he always does.

Quintessential 7th Doctor

Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who: Illegal Alien to be better than the print version?

Difficult to say to be fair. But let me say this. I was never a fan of Sophie Aldred or Ace in the show. That said Sophie Aldred is fantastic as a storyteller. She brings this to life effortlessly, so much so that the story not her vocal takes the lead. She only becomes, for want of a better word, visible, when she is being Ace. All this tells me she has talents we were never given an opportunity to see. Amazing job.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

London 1940, The blitz is the last thing you should be frightened of.

great story, but also quality is poor

the story by Mike Tucker is really good, but the audio quality deteriorated markedly from chapter 25 with words missing and choppy audio.
