This story was a very bad rip off of the Maltese Falcon. Instead of a falcon statue, it’s a coin people are looking. Very bad story.

This was a wonderful audiobook. Stephen Fry who I always liked as an actor, does a wonderful job narrating these stories. Over sixty two hours long Stephen Fry's narration made this audiobook a joy to listen to.

A new adventure with the First Doctor as told by his companion, Sara Kingdom. There's a house across the waters at Ely where an old woman tells a strange story. About a kind of night constable called Sara Kingdom. And her friends, the Doctor and Steven. About a journey they made to a young couple's home and the nightmarish things that were found there. About the follies of youth and selfishness. And the terrible things even the most well-meaning of us can inflict on each other. Hear the old woman's story.

This was a very strange Doctor Who story. It's very much haunted house story, with a sci-fi twist and a bigger twist at the end. Jean Marsh did a great job. I hope to hear more of her adventures as Sarah Kingdom soon.

But the Newman family has more than the prejudices of the time to contend with. A sinister force grows in strength amid the pubs, docks and backstreets of London....

Another great Doctor Who story. Woodhouse meets Doctor Who. TomBaker and Mary Tamm what a great team. It's sad that Mary Tamm is dead, she was one of the most beautiful women to play a companion. It was to bad she was only on Doctor Who for one season. But she will live forever in the hearts of her fans.

The Pinehill Crest Hotel in Kent is host to three very different events: a cross-stitch convention, an experiment in time travel and...the summoning of the scourge. The Doctor, Bernice and Ace find themselves dealing with a dead body that's come back to life, a mystical symbol that possesses its host and a threat from another universe that's ready for every trick the Doctor's got up his sleeve. This time, has the Doctor gone too far? Written by Paul Cornell. Directed by Gary Russell.

I finely heard an audio story staring the Seventh Doctor, Ace , and Benny. I've read many of their adventures and I always wished that their adventures could of been on tv. I guess audio is the closest thing I will ever get. The seventh Doctor at his best being mysterious and and almost callous. Ace at her best always looking for trouble. Benny always the voice of reason. Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred asalways do a great job. Don't know much about the actress who did the voice of Benny, but she sounded good to. Good story and lots of action and drama.

The Tardis lands in a forbidding castle in a time of religious upheaval. The old god has been overthrown, and all heretics are to be slaughtered. Obviously it isn't the sort of thing which would happen there every day - just every few years or so. And when the Doctor and Frobisher are hailed as messengers from heaven, they quickly become vital to opposing factions in their struggle for power. But will they be merely the acolytes of the new order - or will they be made gods themselves?

The Sixth Doctor and his shape changing private detective companion Frobisher enter a strange world that's gone insane. The story started off very funny, then it became dark and very bloody. Nice to see Frobisher who was never on the tv show, but in the Doctor Who comic strip. I thought he and the Doctor made an excellent team. Another great big finish story.

Hannah the maid/the highway man/ alien from outer space, A very interesting character who reminds me of the Immortal Me, from the last season of Doctor Who. A great story

This was a great story. It was like Doctor Who meets Xena. Tom Baker and Louise Jamson were good as ever as the Fourth Doctor and Leela. Leela acting a lot like Xena is great fun. This was a great historical story, i don't know much about this history and I find the story of the Barbarian Queen very interesting. Leela learns the lesson every companion learns, you can't change history, not one dot. Great story.
