Inhaltsangabe

The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. Scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor's TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.

As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven't the Daleks simply killed the humans?

Searching for answers the Doctor meets 'Cinder', a young Dalek hunter. Their struggles to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey, and set in motion a chain of events that will change everything. And everyone.

Read by Nicholas Briggs, the 'voice of the Daleks' in Doctor Who, this epic novel of the Great Time War features the War Doctor as played by John Hurt in the hit BBC TV series. Reading produced by Neil Gardner.Sound design by Simon Hunt.Executive producer: Michael Stevens.

Beautiful story well spoken

It's a very nice story that really shows us what the "war doctor" was like with a doctor who worthy companion.
I can only tell you to listen and relax :)

This was soo perfect.

Nicolas Briggs voiced the War Doctor so marvelously that I had to check if John Hurt saß really not speaking himself. Grand story, great Daleks voices and a wonderful Nicolas Briggs.

yeah, War Doctor!

I needed quite a while to be in a war-doctor-ish mood, but now that I finally finished the book, I'm very satisfied. I think George Mann got him in a nutshell - which is either a stroke of a genius author or a stroke of luck, thinking that the War Doctor probably had the least screen time an incarnation had ever had.

The story, unsurprisingly, is very dark and some descriptions are very graphic and quite disturbing, and thinking about the time and incarnation it depicts, it actually can't be anything else, but I nevertheless enjoyed it.

And, as always, Nicholass Briggs is actually a 6-to-7-stars - narrator.
