(Audiobook) Carmilla
Carmilla - Audible Ltd.,Hannah Genesius,Phoebe Fox,Leslie S. Rose,Susan Wooldridge,Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu,David Tennant,David Horovitch,James Wilby

Note: This review is of the adaptation I listened to, and not the original text.


"Love will have its sacrifices. No sacrifice without blood."


This was wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. This was everything a vampire story should be: Gothic, suspenseful, creepy, and sensual.


This version is an adaptation by Robin Brooks of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu's original novella, and as such there are some changes made to the original work. From what I can see doing a cursory comparison, it appears that while this adaptation retains the original storyline, the cast of characters has been condensed, and the missing character's parts given to other characters, especially at the end. I haven't yet fully read the original, so this may not be exactly right.


Also, instead of a single narrator, we're treated to an entire talented cast including, most notably, Rose Leslie as Laura, Phoebe Fox as Carmilla, and David Tennant as Doctor Hesselius.


The performances were fantastic, especially Rose Leslie. In addition to the delightful cast, I also enjoyed the use of music and sound effects. It reminded me of listening to an old time radio show.


I'd recommend this highly to fans of the original as well as to those who maybe would like to read the original, but maybe aren't fond of the 19th century era prose.

Doctor Who: Feast of the Drowned
Doctor Who: The Feast of the Drowned - Stephen Cole,David Tennant
I'm very tempted to just out and out give this five stars. It's David Tennant. As the Doctor. AND in full brogue. In other words, a little slice of heaven. He does voices quite well (though perhaps not so much Rose and Mickey, but … who cares?), does the creepy bits very creepily, and is all in all a joy to listen to. Unsurprisingly.

And it was a fun story, too, about something (*cough*aliens*cough*) snatching up the drowning and doing unspeakable things to them (and the "Feast" of the title isn't a fun let's-have-another-turkey-leg sort of thing, either). The writing did a nice job of achieving Whovianness – always a concern with fan-fiction at any level up to and including authorized published tie-ins. Though … both eyebrows went up, way up, when Cole referred to "the Doctor's sneakers". Uh. He used the correct "trainers" another time, though, so I'll give him that. There was a great deal of running, and reference to the fact that running is very common with the Doctor, and that's all to the good.

But, in the end, even DT wasn't enough to make this a five-star listen. He was; the story was not.

But – brogue. There is something about the way a Scottish man says "book" that … Ahem. Yes. Very nice.
