An unabridged reading of the new novel by James Goss featuring the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi in the hit BBCTV series Doctor Who.
An asteroid in the furthest reaches of space - the most secure prison for the most dangerous of criminals. The governor is responsible for the cruellest murderers, so he’s not impressed by the arrival of the man they’re calling the most dangerous criminal in the quadrant. Or, as he prefers to be known, the Doctor.
But when the new prisoner immediately sets about trying to escape, and keeps trying, the governor sets out to find out why.
Who is the Doctor, and what’s he really doing here? And who is the young woman who comes every day to visit him, only to be turned away by the guards?When the killing finally starts, the governor begins to get his answers....

A great story and an even better narrator.

I hope I get to hear more Dr Who stories narrated by Colin McFarlane. He did a great job with the different voices and held your attention.

Enjoyable and well performed.

Cleaver story and engaging performance by Colin McFarlane. He captures the 12th Doctor very well indeed that you can almost imagine Peter Capaldi standing in the recording booth with him.
James Goss has also captured the characteristics of the twelfth very well. I enjoyed it enough to say I've listened to it a few times now.

Excellent Episode

Excellent Narration and a tight, gripping story.

The story never flags and, bar the gruesome ending, could have been a good TV episode given the contained setting.

Especially enjoyable is that the author has captured Clara's quirkiness and the Drs irritable nature well with some great dialogue; their 'toe' chat is pure comedy gold that would have worked well on TV, and the Drs diatribe against committees is the best TV speech he never gave.

Highly recommended!
