Description

"You want more time Mr Brown, of course you do. We all want more time. Let me make you an offer...."

Andrew Brown never has enough time. No time to call his sister, or to prepare for that important presentation at the bank where he works. The train’s late, the lift jams. If only he’d had just a little more time. And time is the business of Mr Symington and Mr Blenkinsop. They’ll lend him some - at a very reasonable rate of interest.

Detecting a problem, the Doctor, Amy and Rory go undercover at the bank. But they have to move fast to stop Symington and Blenkinsop before they cash in their investments.

Read by Meera Syal, this is a thrilling all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

One of the Best Doctor Who Listens to Date

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is one of the best Doctor Who audio book I have listened to so far. The performance is so good that I sought out other books performed by Meera Syal. This cautionary tale captures the quintesential Whovian style, eeping you just a half-step ahead of the story, yet occasionally throwing you off the trail.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who: Borrowed Time?

The best moments would be spoilers, but the fates of certain characters are classic.

What does Meera Syal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Meera's performance is outstanding, her voicing brings the characters to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. But telling would be spoiling.

Any additional comments?

If you need your Who fix, this is the right drug.

Dr. Who vs. the evil bankers of the housing market

So to be fair up front, this isn???t a bad Doctor Who story. The plot it good and the only gut check that goes wrong is the stupidity committed by Amy who is character is usually touted as smart if a big gung-ho. It is an good enough story.

That being said the parts I found most remarkable was the underlying message and the ripped from the (7 year old) headlines theme. No kidding the bad guys and the whole story is a metaphor for the current economic troubles and the housing and financial market collapse. The story even goes into explain derivatives (though the word isn???t used) and repackaging and selling on of debt.

Further, compound interest is a major them. I do have say the scene in which the Doctor explains to Amy how compound interest works seems to suggest that the author either doesn???t actually understand or is able to explain compound interest or the author really wants to scare youngsters who may read this book away from becoming bankers.

The story is good. The theme is a focused on finance. If you like Doctor who you???ll like the book. If you don???t this isn???t the one to start with.

Drudgery

The narration was terrible monotone; the story a boring anti-corporate treatise with a predictable ending.

Really liked this one

I found this one kept my attention the entire time. There was a little bit of humor in it, an interesting plot, and likable characters. It also did not have a ton of death. Sometimes the stories that feature in Doctor Who have characters being killed right and left, this one was less violent.

Excellent.

This compilation of stories was more fun and interesting than I was expecting, each was unique and thoroughly in sync with the way Doctor Who tales are told. Enjoyed it very much.

my favorite 11th Doctor story so far

What did you like best about this story?

A very good story, fun, clever and well narrated.

Have you listened to any of Meera Syal’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not heard her other narrations, but was very impressed with her acting in Hungry Earth/Cold Blood on TV.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

In a way -but I also wanted it to last, I was enjoying it so much.

Doctor Who meets Momo via Neil Gaiman

that's pretty much all said.
Although I actually expected (and didn't get) another Angel-Story, this one was at least as good as "Touched by an angel". It is less emotional, far more - well, yes, political, but in an entertaining way.
Meera Syal gets the characters perfectly, and also Naomi Alderman got the TV-personages very well - except for one Amy-episode which I found a bit out of character.

einfach großartig...

Borrowed Time von Naomi Alderman ist ein rundum gelungenes Hörbuch mit dem 11. Doctor, Amy und Rory. Die Story ist originell und abwechslungsreich erzählt, mit vielen kleinen Verweisen auf das Gesamt-Whoniverse, so dass man die Charaktere der Fernsehserie gut darin erkennenn kann.
Meera Syal ist eine hervorragende Sprecherin, der es gelingt die verschiedenen Figuren für den Hörer schön unterscheidbar wiederzugeben. Ich hoffe, sie wird in Zukunft noch weitere Doctor Who-Bücher lesen, auch weil sie eine wirklich angenehme Stimme hat, der man auch nach sechs Stunden noch gerne zuhört.
Von mir also volle Punktzahl für Borrowed Time, ich kann es allen Fans der Serie nur empfehlen!
