Publisher's Summary

Meera Syal reads this exclusive audio story featuring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

The ice-planet Vinsk, in the year 2112. The all-new anti-viral hand wash, Gemini, has been laced with Meme-Spawn: a sentient micro-organism which makes the user fluent in every language in the universe. However, manufacturer Zalnex made one crucial mistake. They didn’t test Gemini on humans, who are seized by the violent urge to communicate but speak every language all at once - with a manic, garbled shriek - and pass on the virus by touch.

The Doctor and Amy arrive on an Earth-bound cargo-ship loaded with Gemini, where a human crew are succumbing to the virus which has nasty second and third phases in store. When the Doctor and Amy are separated, they both know that it’s only a matter of time before Amy is infected.

With the ship locked on course, and no way of curing the sufferers, the Doctor is faced with a terrible decision: does he save Amy, or Earth?

Written specially for audio by Jason Arnopp, ‘The Gemini Contagion’ is read by Meera Syal, who played Nasreen Chaudhry in the BBC TV episodes ‘The Hungry Earth’ and ‘Cold Blood’.

    "Excellent performance but linear story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Meera Syal does great performance, as usual. The story, however, lacks the usual twists and blind alleys of Doctor Who tales. Part of the problem is that this is short.

    Have you listened to any of Meera Syal’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I chose this because of other Doctor Who she has done and her performance adds 2stars to what it could have been.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If the best laid plans can go bad, a poor plan can be a disaster.

    Any additional comments?

    If you can't resist a Doctor Who story, go ahead. I recommend you click on the performer link above and check out some of her other performances such as "Borrowed Time"
