Publisher's Summary

Arthur Darvill reads this exclusive audio adventure featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory.
The TARDIS materialises in a pitch-dark tunnel, where the Doctor, Amy, and Rory stumble on the dead body of a soldier. Questioned by his superior officer, Colonel Bowe, they learn that they're inside a British nuclear bunker, in the middle of an atomic war - in 1982. Amy and Rory weren't even born then, but they know the bomb didn't drop that year, and so does the Doctor. The friends also know they had nothing to do with the death of Sergeant Trott - so who, or what, was the killer? And why does the Doctor's psychic paper not work on the Colonel?
The Doctor, Amy, and Rory soon learn that something else is lurking in the shadows. Something deadly....
Written specially for audio by Steve Lyons, Day of the Cockroach features the Doctor, Amy, and Rory as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill in the hit series from BBC Television.

Pure excellence

Would you listen to Doctor Who: Day of the Cockroach again? Why?

I have to admit that I am still not the biggest fan of Matt Smith, but this episode is great! I could not stop listening and the story was very well told by Arthur Darvill. I will not let any hints out about the story and I highly recommend it if you are a Dr. Who fan like myself. I will enjoying listening to this again in the future. Enjoy!

Short but sweet

It is a bit short, but Arthur gets the characters voices well. I just like his voice, and his fairly decent impressions of Karen's Scottish accent. He understands them well, I think. Story was a bit short, and I really dislike the background sound effects. Really creepy, and kind of distracting.
