I went searching for a Doctor Who story narrated by the actor who played the ninth incarnation, Christopher Eccleston (to put alongside my David Tennant and Matt Smith stories). The narrator, Nicholas Briggs, was just as good, if not better.

Don’t get me wrong, at first, his Doctor voice sounded a bit like Bullwinkle with a northern British accent. But either it got better, or my ears got adjusted. In any event, I was fully into this story because Mr. Briggs (voice of the Daleks and Cybermen, and head of the fabulous Big Finish line of audio productions) simply has a wide range of vocal talent. While the story was entertaining and had a number of good twists, the real enjoyment in listening was hearing it come alive through the many voices of Nicholas Briggs.
