The nightmare of generations has finally come true: A huge comet is on collision course with Earth, a holocaust is imminent. But from the Comet come a million copper tentacles that snatch up gorgeous, feral news reporter Kate Spencer and intergalactic bank robbers Jimmy and Henry. Escaping from the most improbable prison-cell in the universe, these three must destroy the brain of the Comet before the day is out, or Earth and several thousand alien species will die. But the Pure Crusader has his Army of Drones, Kate Spencer has a secret, and it might just be Jimmy and Henry's last stand, in humanoid form at least....

"Infidel`s Comet is an overlooked tale from BBV`s audio stable, which is unfortunate as it does have a lot going in its favour. Directed by and starring Jo Castleton, it tells of what is believed to be a comet heading for Earth. However, this is no comet, but a spaceship, determined to stop the inter-relations of aliens and Humans. Presentation is the key here and including characters such as Castleton`s journalist Kate Spencer, thus allowing for a degree of atmosphere. Where it fails is in the execution, okay there are nice ideas such as the cameos by Zygons and Sontarans, but the ideas and concepts tend to fail somewhat. A tale of two halves really."
