Doctor Who: The Essential Companion has everything you need to know about the Doctor’s travels before he – and you – set off in the TARDIS once again.
Alex Price's narration... boldly builds up but never becomes intrusive to the soundtrack and action... Containing some nice moments of comedy it stops this release from just being a straight forward compendium of the season's greatest scenes. It also allows Murray Gold's score to be heard and appreciated more fully
Alex Price... offers a warm and engaging link that knits the audiobook together quite seamlessly... Even if you own the complete series 5 on DVD, this acts as a great accompaniment - and one that enables the listener to experience those 13 episodes in a brand new, and exciting way
