David Llewellyn – Doctor Who: The Taking of Chelsea 426


The Chelsea Flower Show – hardly the most exciting or dangerous event in the calendar, or so Doctor thinks. But this is Chelsea 426, a city-sized future colony floating on the clouds of Saturn, and the flowers are much more than they seem.

As the Doctor investigates, a familiar foe arrives, and the stakes suddenly get much higher. The Sontarans have plans of their own, and they’re not here to arrange flowers.

I was quite excited to see these lengthier Doctor Who novels that were recently released, The Taking of Chelsea 426 among them. The story contains your classic bad guys and a spot-on Tenth Doctor. When the narration began, I was a bit nervous about how well Christopher Ryan was going to be able to voice the Doctor, as he sounded a bit droll. But when the Doctor showed up, sure enough, the voice and inflections were spot-on.

The story was developed well enough to keep me going with it, but not so complicated that I couldn’t multi-task while I listened.

Overall, an entertaining listen, well worth a credit. 🙂
