Michelle Ryan Reads The Rising Night

Michelle Ryan reads this latest Doctor Who BBC Audio book featuring the solitary adventures of the Tenth Doctor, and has spoken to SFX about her vocal talents and David Tennant portrayal.

Released on July 9th, The Rising Night is by Scott Handcock and is set in 18th Century Yorkshire in a rural village where the sun hasn’t risen for three weeks.

Apparently at this stage, the Doctor arrives and teams up with local lass, Charity, to uncover what’s going on.

I’ll tell you now without listening – nothing is going on. It’s Yorkshire – it’s always dark.

Anyway Michelle Ryan chats with SFX about channelling Joanna Lumley and her preparation for doing a cast of different voices:

“You can’t really prepare. You’re the narrator but you’re also playing these different characters. The challenge is constantly keeping the energy up; keeping the mood up. Sometimes you have top go from being quite energetic and frenetic and then slowing it right down for the next character”

Surely there would be some preparation along the lines of keeping the accents and voices consistent to the characters?

“I’m glad I’ve done it. It gets you thinking – having to switch between different characters, pretty much improvising it as you’re going along.”

Oh. Evidently not…

The Rising Night is available from Amazon and currently has a pre-order price of £5.86, a 40% saving!
