     BBC Audio: The Stone Rose: The Resurrection Casket: The Feast Of The Drowned.

    Read by David Tennant.

    Three Enjoyable romps for the Doctor; Rose and extended family released by B.B.C. Audio: One past; one present day and one set (sort of) future.

    The Stone Rose by Jacqueline Raynor is mainly set in the past but starts in the present when Micky finds a statue in the British Museum from the Roman Empire which bears a remarkable resemblance to Rose. Of course you know what is coming next... The Doctor and Rose travel back to ancient Rome to resolve this mystery.

    The Resurrection Casket by Justin Richards would be the future. The Tardis lands in a section of the galaxy where electricity is useless and everything is powered by steam including spaceships. So it really is no surprise when the Tardis refuses to work and the Doctor and Rose find themselves locked out. This begins an old fashioned pirates and buried treasure tale.

    The Feast of the Drowned by Stephen Cole is the present. A British warship is lost with all hands in mysterious circumstances and one of the lost sailors is an old crush of Rose's. Then the sailors begin to come back in a ghostly form to invite their relatives to commit suicide and join them. Of course the Doctor and Rose investigate and find that some things are a little more than classified.

    These stories are all read brilliantly by David Tennant who mimics the characteristics of the regular cast in an almost uncanny style. The stories are all extremely entertaining although they require a little concentration from the listener. Fair play to B.B.C. Audio who have kept the prices reasonable and as such they provide excellent value. The interviews with the authors at the end of each disc are somewhat redundant as each is asked the same basic questions but I am guessing that 99% of the listening audience will not bother with them anyway. If you are looking at these on a web page and wavering on whether they are worth your hard earned... Waver no more... They are!

    Mine arrived last Friday, and I finally loaded them onto my 3G 30GB iPod. This is my Doctor Who audiobook/audio play pod, which is filled with my Big Finish and BBC collection. The new audiobooks sound like the perfect companion for my bus ride up to the Catskills on Friday night. And if I get a good clear night of observing over the weekend, I may get another one in at my telescope. Otherwise, its to my other iPod for some Brit pop or post-punk... :)
