126:110 The Doctor Trap by Simon Messingham

Doctor Who novel with the 10th Doctor and Donna Noble as the companion.  Sebastianne is the ruler of Planet 1 and has decided to add to his trophy collection the ultimate prize, The Doctor.  He lays an elaborate trap and brings in the Society for Endangered Dangerous Species, a group of a dozen hunters that specialize in making dangerous species extinct.  The game is set and the pieces in place but the one thing you never want to put in a trap is the Doctor.

I enjoyed the plot, nice twists and turns although some were glaringly obvious.  The only bit I didn't like was the tone for the characters voices were off.  I just couldn't read anything in David Tennant's or Catherine Tate's voice as it didn't read right for those characters.  You'd get a glimpse of them and then it would disappear.  A bit sad although maybe if I'd been watching episodes with them recently it would have been easier but still, wasn't quite right.  Still a fun book tho for fans of the series.
