Brilliant story and well crafted audiobook

This is amongst the best few of the Dr Who audio books to date. The story is very good and sufficiently different from the myriad others it joins in the Dr Who universe to include a few surprises. What make it a stand out is how the story is written as though the narrative is a retrieved 'audiotape' made by the Dr. This of course lends itself perfectly to the audio book format, and the opportunity it presents was not wasted in the audio book production. Thus, whilst not quite an audio-play (as are a few of the Torchwood audio books) Dead Air is more than just a narration of the book/script.

As with all recent Dr Who scripts & books, Dead Air is a little derivative of the types of plot elements that have worked in the past. This is manifest in the type and nature of the alien foe, local human characters and setting for the story. This is fine though... The formula makes it a classic style Dr Who story with a new and interesting storyline. If anything, my only disappointment was that the story was so short. Yes it was priced accordingly, but a story this good could have been built upon and improved.

Of the dozens of Dr Who stories on audible, this is one for any listener. A good one-off for a non-Dr Who fan's collection, or a key addition for someone who enjoys the genre.

best yet!

This is the best audio Dr. Who story I've heard yet, and it is what I expect from a Dr. Who story - good action, the Doctor solving a problem and saving the world, and a great twist in the story!
