Publisher's Summary

At the heart of the ruined city of Arcopolis is the Fortress. It's a brutal structure placed there by one of the sides in a devastating intergalactic war that's long ended. Fifteen years ago, the entire population of the planet was killed in an instant by the weapon housed in the heart of the Fortress. Now only the ghosts remain. The Doctor arrives, and determines to fight his way past the Fortress's automatic defenses and put the weapon beyond use. But he soon discovers he's not the only person in Arcopolis. What is the true nature of the weapon? Is the planet really haunted? Who are the Eyeless? And what will happen if they get to the weapon before the Doctor? The Doctor has a fight on his hands. And this time he's all on his own.

One of the Best

If you love a chance to get inside the Doctor's head, this is the story for you. Since he's alone, you get a sneak peek of what he's thinking. It's spot on, with lots of twists and turns. The narrator is wonderful at speaking like different characters and showing emotion. This is a tie for my favorites with the Nemonite Invasion.

Oh, and if you are a softie like me, you'll cry at the end.

A Great Story and a Great Narrator

I really liked this story when I originally read it as the book. It is more, er, intimate than most Doctor Who stories and that might attract some, but I personaly liked it for the great action and artistic way it is written. It's suspenseful and almost scary at times and the lack of a companion only adds to the darker feel. Still, even for fans of more fun stories, this is a great story! The Narrantor, Russel Tovey (who played Alonso Frame in Voyage of the Damned), also does a great job as The Doctor! All in all, a great audiobook and a great adventure!
