Publisher's summary

An unabridged reading of the new novel by James Goss featuring the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi in the hit BBCTV series Doctor Who.

An asteroid in the furthest reaches of space - the most secure prison for the most dangerous of criminals. The governor is responsible for the cruellest murderers, so he’s not impressed by the arrival of the man they’re calling the most dangerous criminal in the quadrant. Or, as he prefers to be known, the Doctor.

But when the new prisoner immediately sets about trying to escape, and keeps trying, the governor sets out to find out why.

Who is the Doctor, and what’s he really doing here? And who is the young woman who comes every day to visit him, only to be turned away by the guards?When the killing finally starts, the governor begins to get his answers....

A complete and unabridged reading by Colin McFarlane, who was the Voice of the Heavenly Host in the TV episode "Voyage of the Damned".

Reading produced by Neil Gardner. Sound design by Simon Hunt. Executive producer: Michael Stevens

Utterly Fantastic

I’ve really enjoyed the Dr Who stories and at the end of each one, I say it’s my favorite. This is no exception. The story is well written, and Colin McFarlane narrates it fantastically. It’s easy to feel like you are a part of the story. I recommend this book to all looking for great entertainment.

12th Doctor Awesomeness!

This was a great listen. Both author and narrator captured the Doctor brilliantly. I wasn't a huge fan of the narrator's voice for Clara, but it wasn't too bad. The POV character is the Doctor's jailer, which as you can imagine is an incredibly frustrating position. One of the better Doctor stories I've read/listened to.

A great story and an even better narrator.

I hope I get to hear more Dr Who stories narrated by Colin McFarlane. He did a great job with the different voices and held your attention.

Creepy

Besides having the rare view being seen through the eyes and mind through one of the doctors "charges" this is the first story I found really creepy not just the monsters but humans and their societyreally held up a mirror sorta

A worthy addition to the mythos

Great performance, fun story, interesting POV for the story that added quite a bit too the tone. The characters were spot on and Clara is my favorite companion now.
