Publisher's Summary

In the far future, the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack find a world on which fiction has been outlawed. A world where it’s a crime to tell stories, a crime to lie, a crime to hope, and a crime to dream.

But now somebody is challenging the status quo. A pirate TV station urges people to fight back. And the Doctor wants to help until he sees how easily dreams can turn into nightmares.

With one of his companions stalked by shadows and the other committed to an asylum, the Doctor is forced to admit that fiction can be dangerous after all. Though perhaps it is not as deadly as the truth.

Read by Camille Coduri, this is a gripping adventure featuring the Ninth Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston, together with Rose and Captain Jack as played by Billie Piper and John Barrowman in the hit series from BBC Television.

A bit difficult to get through

I fell asleep twice as I was listening to this book. The second time, I didn't catch the ending, and I didn't really care. Maybe it's the amount of characters in the story or the general storyline, it's difficult to keep track of. After I was through it, of course, I figured it was pretty good and there was that underlying truth that makes Doctor Who so appealing, but it was definitely a tough read.

Very enjoyable. Glad I bought

This is a very good story especially by Doctor Who standards! Would've made a darn good episode. Pretty dark actually. Narrator did a really good job keeping me engaged. I can't say she reallyeven had to do any voices. There was just something about the way she read that made it listenable. I will likely listen again at some point
