Editorial Reviews

"Now that was some serious, bleeping fun. For a few hours – amidst the sounds of morphing extraterrestrials, ignited flamethrowers, and the sonic tremble of spaceships overhead – it felt like I had stolen away into the world of The X-Files and been treated to my very own mini-season. Of course, listening to Duchovny and Anderson verbally spar as the iconic pairing of Mulder and Scully is an X-Philes' delight. But, for me, hearing the liquid honey – though sinister – croon of William B. Davis' Cigarette Smoking Man AND the giddy shenanigans of the original Lone Gunmen was worth the price of admission alone. Add to that top-notch sound design and a story that doses out ‘Monster of the Week' thrills and ‘mytharc’ reveals (canonical arguments be damned, this was just too fun), and you have yourself one can't-miss listen for fans." -Doug, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

The series that had a generation looking to the sky gets a breathtaking audio reprise in an original full-cast dramatization featuring actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning to voice FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris - with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter - and adapted specifically for the audio format by aural auteur Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Alien: Out of the Shadows), and directed by William Dufris of AudioComics, Cold Cases marks yet another thrilling addition to the pantheon of X-Files stories. Featuring a mind-blowing and otherworldly soundscape of liquefying aliens, hissing creatures, and humming spacecraft, listeners get to experience the duo's investigations like never before.
Set after the events of The X-Files: I Want to Believe and providing additional backstory to the incidents that pulled Mulder and Scully out of reclusion prior to 2016's miniseries revival, a database breach at FBI headquarters allows an unknown group to access and capitalize on those investigations left unsolved - dubbed cold cases - by the secret department once known as The X-Files. As friends and foes of the agency long thought gone begin to inexplicably reappear, former agents Mulder and Scully come out of anonymity to face a growing conspiracy that involves not only their former department but the US government and forces not of this world.
Here, fans are treated once again to Mulder and Scully's irreplicable chemistry as only the series' leads could deliver, Duchovny's deadpan and cynical aloofness finding its natural counterpoint in Anderson's unwavering intelligence and rigidity. Appearances from series regulars and the actors who made them fan favorites round out this must-listen arc: the gruff, no-BS righteousness of Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi); the distinctive click-puff of the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis); and the stooge-like hijinks of three beloved conspiracy theorists called the Lone Gunmen (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).
Whether you're a believer or a skeptic, find your "I Want to Believe" poster. Break out that makeshift alien stiletto. Grab a pack of Morley cigarettes.
The truth is out there. You just have to listen.

This is amazing. Plz more with the Original Cast!!

If you could sum up The X-Files: Cold Cases in three words, what would they be?

Excellent. Awesome. Wonderful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mulder and Scully, of course.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This is my first time.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I laughed and wanted to cry. I was so happy to hear David and Gillian as Mulder and Scully. To hear the Lone Gunmen and Skinner.

Any additional comments?

My only criticism is not for this but for CC. William is Mulder's son, CC. Come on. Anyway, other than that. This was excellent. Excellent.

Already listened to this twice - doesn't improve

Hmm, thought it was only fair if I listened to this twice before typing my review.

This is the third audio-drama I’ve listened to this year that has involved Dirk Maggs and sadly like Alien: River of Pain, it just isn’t very good.

Stepping away from his usual Directors chair, Dirk adapted the X-files graphic novels by Joe Harris into audio. Though I found these stories stale. With audio the story can take you anywhere, without the budget constraints that affect TV/film production, so I was hoping this would be big, bold and move the story along with energy. Oh and that’s something that was missing in the recording booths.

The biggest frustration I had is with the cast as there are so many instances when they went out of acting mode and just read the script without emotion. Wham. And that’s you jolting out of the story wondering what just happened. It breaks the illusion, the immersiveness of audio. Not sure why the Director didn’t realise how ‘dry’ their performances were.

And what’s with Dirk’s obsession with CB radio chat, just like ‘River of Pain’ there are a lot people saying “Copy That”. Arghhh.

Lastly it was good to hear Laurel Lefkow again, she played Ripley in Alien: Out of the Shadows - still sounding like Sigourney Weaver. She was the narrator in this.

Just didn’t live up to the hype; overall 2 stars


What is it with the Audible review system. If a review is negative it is down voted, but Audible asks “Was this review helpful to you?”. Not whether you agree with it. To me it seems that the system is being manipulated. I’d rather read all positive and negative reviews and judge myself whether to purchase it. Just because I don’t agree with something, doesn’t me that it wasn’t helpful. A review with just some random words, now that’s something to click ‘No’.

need another!

It took me a bit to get past the robotic sound of how everyone spoke. I dont know if I just got used to it but I feel it did get better. I was addicted! ready for another.
