A 2,000 year old statue of Rose Tyler is a mystery that the Doctor and Rose can only solve by travelling back to the time when it was made. But when they do, they find the mystery is deeper and more complicated than they ever imagined. While the Doctor searches for a missing boy, Rose befriends a girl who it seems can accurately predict the future. But when the Doctor stumbles on the terrible truth behind the statue, Rose herself learns that you have to be very careful what you wish for.
First of the tenth doctor stories, I listened to the audiobook of this because it was read by the lovely David Tennant. Nothing better than hearing more from my favourite Doctor! The story was good too, I love it when there’s an element of time travel - seeing the stone in the future makes them go back to the past and all the ramifications of that. Plus the idea of the robot genie wish-granter was brilliant, you have to be so careful with what you wish for!
