Goodreads Synopsis:

Tiermann’s World: a planet covered in wintry woods and roamed by sabre-toothed tigers and other savage beasts. The Doctor is here to warn Professor Tiermann, his wife and their son that a terrible danger is on its way. The Tiermanns live in luxury, in a fantastic, futuristic, fully-automated Dreamhome, under an impenetrable force shield. But that won’t protect them from the Voracious Craw. A gigantic and extremely hungry alien creature is heading remorselessly towards their home. When it gets there everything will be devoured. Can they get away in time? With the force shield cracking up, and the Dreamhome itself deciding who should or should not leave, things are looking desperate…


This is my first review of an audiobook! I have listened to a few audiobooks in the past when I had a long commute to school, but now I don’t have a commute so I haven’t been listening to them. I found these Doctor Who audiobooks on my library app, and they are nice and short, so I will be listening to and reviewing them!

The narrator was Will Thorp, and he was amazing! He did different voices for all of the different characters. His voice for the Doctor sounded exactly like David Tenant, who plays the Tenth Doctor in this book. I will definitely be looking for more books narrated by him.

I also liked how short this audiobook was. It was only 2 hours long, so I was able to listen to it two days, while I was driving around and doing errands. Sometimes, I lose interest and get distracted when audiobooks are too long. This story was short and succinct.

I loved this book! I’m looking forward to listening to more Doctor Who audiobooks.

What to read next:

  • Doctor Who: Wetworld by Mark Michalowski


  • Doctor Who: Wooden Heart by Martin Day
