Great audio book but expected Meera Syal narrating and it is Clare Corbett.

Beautifully narrated by Clare Corbett as indicated by the image of the book cover and not narrated by Meera Syal as listed in the details.

This threw me at the beginning because I chose it expecting Meera Syal and I was wondering why she was doing a posh middle-class RP accent in an unexpectedly higher voice than her usual velvety tones for quite a while instead of enjoying the book undistracted.

Once I finally twigged what was going on I settled into it and Clare Corbett is an excellent choice for this story. She is good at Rory and Amy and all the other characters work well too. She deserves to be properly credited in details. Overall a good solid enjoyable Who adventure. Well written and presented. Nicely creepy at the beginning.

The Way through the Woods - Dr Who at its best!

Oh what a wonderful yarn! A fabulous story, superbly read by Meera Syal. One could think of this as countless faerie stories from childhood rolled into one. Definitely a starring role for Amy in this one, with some very interesting supporting characters. And an interesting twist in the, rather foxy, tale! Fantastic!

inventive and convincing

McCormack uses folklore tropes- animal headed men, stolen people, roads that lead to faerie land, within the scifi of Doctor Who to create a inventive and convincing addition to the history of Amy, Rory and the Doctor. Gives a lovely sense of mystery to those wooded areas near towns and motorways that grow in darkness just beyond the streetlights.
