Publisher's Summary

Thrown off course by a howling storm, the TARDIS lands in a bleak, desolate stretch of countryside. The Doctor deduces that it has arrived in Hampshire in the 1920s and, sniffing the air, he smells a distinct odour of sulphur - indicating that a spaceship has crashed in the area. While Rory goes to fetch an umbrella, Amy and the Doctor brave the rain to find the stricken craft. It is huge, shiny, silvery-blue - and completely empty. A set of footprints leads to a cosy-looking, old-fashioned cottage: but the house, too, is deserted. However, the Doctor and Amy can distinctly hear people talking - and one of the voices sounds like Rory's.
How could he be in the cottage when he was last seen heading back to the TARDIS? Where are the residents of the empty house? And what has happened to the inhabitants of the spaceship?
Raquel Cassidy reads this exclusive audio adventure featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory.

Too good but too short

It is hard to decide if I got my money's worth. I love Dr. Who and enjoyed this audiobook but it just seemed too short. It was like having an audible episode of Doctor Who, wrapped up in an hour or so. I'm not sure if I really cared for the background sounds but overall the narrator did a pretty good job.

A bit simple--but fun

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I saw the plot twist coming from the beginning--but the Doctor and Amy were well done.


Would you ever listen to anything by Simon Guerrier again?

Yes--he understand the characters but could use a more complicated plot--though this is a very short book. Really just an hour episode.


What does Raquel Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a great job with all the characters.


Was Doctor Who: The Empty House worth the listening time?

Yes--not my favorite but good.
