    One thought on “Doctor Who: The Stone Rose”

    1. I listened to the audio book and flailed around in my car for most of it. David Tennant is an astoundingly good reader, and there's something delightful about how pitch-perfect his character voices are (and how fun to have him actually sound like the Doctor.) Packed with Doctor-and-Rose moments, and with a fun plot twist and lots of close brushes with time paradoxes that make up for the seemingly interminable and gruesome time the Doctor spends in the Flavian Amphitheater.

    2. I completely forgot that I'd read this book, given that I read it a long time ago now. Can I just take this tiny 'pocket of time' to mention how much I miss Doctor x Rose? I know this isn't the TV series, but I can't stress how much I miss the old Doctor Who. Personally I feel the stories and characters were beyond the standard of what it was made out to be (the twists had my family and I literally huddled around the TV screen either in a state of shock or sobbing uncontrollably). It was undenia [...]

    3. 3,5 stars“I've seen a lot of strange thingsAbominable snowmen, Werewolves, Demons. Vampires. But Roman gods with mystical powers?”HA. Come on doctor, nothing can be scarier than Weeping Angels.*shudders*Oh wait, wrong season.Anyway. My favorite doctor's new adventure read my favorite doctor. How could I said no?Narrator: David Tennant Duration: 2 hours and 22 minutes long.Featuring: the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler as the companion. Mickey and Rose's mother also make cameos.The Story: 'Be Car [...]

    4. This had to be one of the cutest Doctor Who stories I've read/watched!Jacqui Rayner has captured the essence of the 10th Doctor; quirky, manic, fiercely intelligent and prone to the occasional burst of terrible anger. I listened to the audio book as well and was very impressed! David Tennant did a terrific job. He does wonderful character voices, and you can definitely hear the distinctions between Rose and her mother for example, it was also great hearing him as the Doctor! Thoroughly recommend [...]

    5. The Stone RoseAh I miss Ten and Rose- that’s why I lept at the chance to listen to a, as yet, untold adventure of their’s on Audible. In this short story, (About 2 and ½ hrs listening time), part time Time-Traveling Doctor’s companion Mickey Smith shows The Doctor and Rose something odd at the museum- a perfect replica of Rose as the Goddess Fortuna in marble… from 1st Century Rome. Realizing that’s Rome is their next trip, The Doctor takes Rose back in time with him to discover the c [...]

    6. I'll be honest here, I bought this audio book simply because I seen it was read by David Tennant and it was Doctor Who. I mean, it's pretty impossible not to like anything that involves those two, am I right? I've read TV-to-Book's before when I was younger, so I had an idea of what I was getting into. If you're expecting extensive character development, don't look here.BUT, if you're like me, and looking for something entertaining to listen to on your way to work, then go for it! David's voices [...]

    7. It started OK, but soon after the Doctor and Rose arrived in Rome, it went downhill. I could guess what happened with the missing boy as soon as the sculptor was introduced. You probably can too ;D And it got only worse (!)I've perfect gif for Ten/Rose kiss, Ten going back in time to save Rose, all that Vanessa & GENIE story, ridiculous (and competently pointless) scene in Colosseum, and for making Ten say "But some slaves do lead happy lives. Or they're given their freedom, or buy it" perfe [...]

    8. The short review:Starts off predictable.Begins to lead you to believe that it's not predictable.Becomes predictable again.Shows some heart and emotion (briefly)Turns silly.Ends as predicted (with a well established trope, none-the-less)The longer review coming in a few weeks on the podcast.

    9. Rating: 1.5 - This review does have spoilers.This was a disappointing book to say the least. The reasons are listed below:1. The DoctorIn the foreword the writer mentions that the she started writing this book before the tenth doctor had been fully created. And you can tell. Every other character from the show is written on the nose - you can hear that character speaking when you read. That's just not the case with the tenth doctor. It's like he is an unfinished statue - he's got the general sha [...]

    10. El audiolibro más corto de la historia u.u,lo escuché en tan sólo 2 horas non stop con muchos elementos wibbly wobbly timey wimey.Escogí este título porque no sabía en qué gastar mi último crédito gratis en audible (Fueron 2 meses en que lo nuestro fue puro amor,pero creo que la membresía es muy cara porque a ese precio encuentro un libro bonito y hardback en book depository,aunque igual os extrañaré "Please don't go girl" (8) XD ) y entonces haciendo scroll bang!!!, me sale está su [...]

    11. The plot and setting of this story were promising, Mickey discovers a sculpture of Rose from ancient Rome in a museum. Upon showing it to the Doctor and Rose they decide that they must make a trip to Rome 120AD so that the sculpture can be made thus avoiding a time paradox.Everything starts out fine, slight spoiler (happens relatively quickly), Rose is actually turned into stone instead of modeling for a sculpture being made in her image and the Doctor must find her and bring her back to her fle [...]

    12. If you're a big fan of David Tennant, and you think Twilight was great, and your favorite part about Doctor Who is when Rose and the 10th Doctor make puppy eyes at each other and you're a twelve-year-old girl then grab your My Little Ponies and Giddyup! This book is for you! This book is crap. No bones about it. Crap. There's a whole lot of the aforementioned puppy eyes business going on, a bunch of condemning ancient cultures by modern morality (a personal pet peeve), a convoluted story line th [...]

    13. Uh yeah. I think I may have officially reached a new level of geekdom -- Doctor Who TV show-based novelizations? The next thing you know I'll be attending Comic-Con as a Dalek. Not that there's anything wrong with that. *whispers confidentially* Between you and me, I think I'm just still coming to terms with true reality and scope of my nerdiness. Don't worry, I'll get there eventually. Maybe not dressed as a Dalek, but anyway David Tennant. DAVID TENNANT. The man is amazing, and he narrates thi [...]

    14. When you find that the only enjoyment you are getting from a book is the thought of reviewing it on , it is a bad sign.This is a Doctor Who book. Now, if I were an author, before writing a book in a television series that has had 737 episodes, I would attempt to watch at least one. Clearly, I am not Jaqueline Rayner, the author. Ahem, the Doctor is not just a dude with a time machine! And, before having your characters talk about the "laws of time", it would be nice if you actually knew what the [...]

    15. My first Tenth Doctor novel, recommended to me by LJ user eveshka, started off a bit slow--but picked up considerably in the second half. It also had the distinction of being the first Doctor story I can remember encountering that's set in actively ancient Earth history, which was a refreshing change of pace. Yet despite the historical setting, there's a nice twining in of futuristic technology as well, and I liked that the scope of this story was more of a "solving a time mystery" rather than " [...]

    16. Oh! Oh, oh, oh, OOOOOHHH!!!I am squirming and bouncing in my seat! I can't help it!!! Giant, stupid grin plastered across my face I have to admit Ten & Rose? Mmmmmm happy place! ;D I've read and listened to several Who books - mind, usually I only listen to David Tennant read. Acause?! Hello! I love me some gorgeous, pretty boy Scotsman. Yes, please! Ooops. Blush That was a bit of a detour. Ahem. I'm good. Back to the review. Wait. I need another sec. Hmmmm David Yummy Tennant. Siiiiiiiiigh. [...]

    17. I listened to the audio book in the car today. David Tennant is by far one of the best readers I've ever come across. It's worth listening to just for his on point Jackie impression, or the Mickey voice, that he gets perfectly. Seriously, nothing wrong with that one. As for the plot: you know how these books are usually terrible?Having read the supernatural book series before listening to this, I was expecting something equally shit. That the authour didn't know anything about the characters, or [...]

    18. Yes. It's a book based off a TV show. I really liked it. It was like finding a lost episode. And not just any lost episode, but an episode from one of my favorite seasons. Not surprisingly, since it is sci-fi, it was full of out of order time travel and paradoxes. Thumbs up :).

    19. Oh, the Doctor. My Doctor. He’s made this book so much fun. ;) The author did a great job of capturing the personality and relaxed humor of the Tenth Doctor from the Doctor Who reboot season 2. This audiobook had several things going for it right off…1. It’s all about Ten. (I don’t watch Doctor Who anymore, but some of the earlier episodes are still special to me.)2. It’s also about Rose Tyler. Hands down best companion ever! I can’t get enough of them together. ;) They’ve got a ve [...]

    20. Listening to this book was just- amazing. I started it and was hooked, finished it in just a day because I couldn't stop. David Tennant is a wonderful voice actor, and I was constantly impressed with how quickly he switched between his Scottish accent (for narration) and his Doctor voice. His Jackie voice was PERFECT and hilarious, and his Mickey voice just made me laugh.His acting though. He conveyed the emotion as the Doctor exactly as he would on the show. I'd be listening and enjoying and la [...]

    21. They only cussed once so that was GREAT! ;)I love how Rose was portrayed (a big plus after being hugely let down by how she was written in 'The Price of Paradise' by Colin Brake). Ten was awesome as well; though I wish it talked about his mannerisms a bit more- the quirks we know and love. The storyline was lovely! I was confused towards the end but. Timey wimey stuff! Such an intricate storyline!

    22. Lots and lots of paradoxes.Though I didn't get the the ususal thrill I get from watching Doctor Who, this was a good plot, it will do.Most importantly, I picked this novel to read the 'the other not-acknowledged-very-often'relationship between Doctor and Rose, which I have been missing a little.Clearly, my wish got fulfilled.

    23. I am a huge Dr Who fan and these books are an excellent addition to the series. I really enjoyed all of them so far. :)

    24. The relationship between Rose and the Doctor is just awesome in this one! Definitely my favourite so far!

    25. Cute campy novel for a Doctor Who. The 10th Doctor and Rose are strong voices throughout. Set in Roman times, the Doctor and Rose try to solve the mystery of a missing boy and a mysterious girl who doesn't seem to be who she says she is. Lots of Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey stuff. Good, but not great. I did enjoy it, though.

    26. This was cute and fun. Highly, HIGHLY recommend listening to the Audiobook voiced by David Tennant; I grinned like an idiot the entire time. Hearing his voice truly made it feel like I was watching the show 😍
