Throwback Thursday Review: Doctor Who: Twelve Doctors of Christmas

Doctor Who: Twelve Doctors of Christmas audiobook review. Silhouettes of each of the first twelve Doctors fill bubbles around a tardis, surrpunded by Gallifreyan symbols and snowflakes. Doctor Who: Twelve Doctors of Christmas by Jacqueline Rayner.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Duration: 5 hrs 46 mins.

The Twelve Doctors of Christmas is a great, fun collection of seasonal stories about each of the Doctors (from Hartnell to Capaldi). Each chapter features a new story, and a new Doctor (whose number corresponds to the chapter). The stories themselves are a bit of a mixed bag, with some being better than others. Some identify the 'version' of the Doctor very particularly through mention of their attire or hairstyle, and others by recognisable companions, so there's always enough to call to mind each iteration of The Doctor as you listen. Some of the narrators are better at capturing the spirit of their doctor better than others, but Chris Addison did a particularly good job with this.

I really enjoyed listening to each individual story, and they reminded me of the televised 'specials' and mini-episodes around things like Red Nose Day or Children in Need. Definitely a book I can listen to again, and one that makes it simple to go straight for my favourite stories, or favourite Doctors!
