Halloween Who

A good little series of scary stories covering each incarnation of the Doctor. The Celestial Toymaker twist was quit good and i didn't see it coming. Kid friendly for all ages althogh it may frighten younger kids, my eight year old self would have loved this. Narration was very good although some of the voice actors sometimes go a little over the top, but like a good panto the kids will enjoy it.

Tales of Terror (with varying degrees of success)

Chapters 1, 6, and 9 were exemplary, and full of Halloween charm. Chapter 6 had an amazing twist I wasn't expecting, and was a pleasantly unexpected bit of cosmic psycholigical horror. Chapter 12 was also perfectly in line with that incarnation of the Doctor. Sadly, the other stories ranged from passible to pretty darn unremarkable. Chapter 4's ear piercing narration and stupid villains was just torture. The narrator of Chapters 1 & 6 was easily the best of them, and the narrator for Chapter 12 did the best Doctor impersonation. Sadly, the other narrators struggled to sound anything close to their respective doctors, which was really off putting given how distinct some of their voices are. It's like a mixed bag of Halloween candy -- sometimes you get a king sized Hershey bar, and other times you get a melted jolly rancher. However, even jolly ranchers are okay treats. In other words -- I highly recommend it.

Average dr who audio book some bad narration

Just an average book all the stories so short they seem very simplistic. Some of the narration is truly awful. The final story the Scottish accent is cringe worthy.
Not the greatest dr who book I own

Good stories shame about the rest

The Sories are great but unfortunately most of the readers are terrible as a result I couldn't listen to them.
