Whilst the human race is engaged in an intergalactic war with the aliens of the Orion system, the Doctor and his companion find themselves trapped in a creepy salvage vessel, facing execution for a crime they couldn’t possibly have committed. But this is only the start of their problems – for deep in the Garazone system the terrifying Cybermen are reawakening...
This is one of the best-selling Big Finish audiobooks on MP3 and the second to feature the eighth doctor, played by Paul McGann in this full-ensemble cast production. India Foster plays the Doctor’s Edwardian companion Charley, and Michelle Livingstone deserves a mention for her cool and efficient performance as Captain Deeva Jansen.
Writer Nicholas Briggs multitasks on this MP3 audiobook: he directs, creates the sound design and music and even appears as the voice of the Cyberleader. His background music enhances an already claustrophobic, dark and mechanical atmosphere.
Many Doctor Who fans lament that a BBC TV series featuring Paul McGann was never made after his brief appearance as the eighth doctor on the small screen in a single TV movie. This four-part CD audiobook is the perfect way to experience more of McGann’s lively incarnation of the character.
