A Further Selection Of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Audiobooks

I've been pretty busy reviewing more audiobooks in recent weeks and there's more to get through!

I've been particularly enjoying AudioGO's Doctor Who releases of late with particularly strong adventures featuring the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith and the Fourth Doctor as played by Tom Baker and missing episode audio dramas featuring William Hartnell  and Patrick Troughton as the first and second Doctor's.

Doctor Who: The Silent Stars Go By is read by Michael Maloney and features The Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory up against classic series villains The Ice Warriors. Read from Dan Abnett's novel of the same name this is one of the finer doctor Who audio titles available at the moment catching the true spirit of adventure of the series.

There was some excitement before Christmas about the rediscovery of two early TV episodes of Doctor Who from the 1960s. As we wait for news of the release of these classic episodes I thought I'd take time to check out the audio releases of Doctor Who: Galaxy 4 starring William Hartnell and Doctor Who: The Underwater Menace featuring Patrick Troughton. Narrated by Peter Purves and Anneke Wills both stories certainly stand up well on audio and getting a glimpse of the missing episodes on film will no doubt whet appetites for fans to rediscover further missing stories.

The Doctor Who: Serpent Crest series also continues with The Hexford Invasion in which Mrs Wibbsey unexpectedly finds herself face to face with two Doctor's! Joining Tom Baker as The Doctor, Richard Franklin as Mike Yates and Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey is David Troughton who magically recreates his father's role as The Second Doctor for audio.

Just to prove I don't just listen to Doctor Who audios I've only just posted up a review of E.J. Newman's collection of short stories From Dark Places. This is a really good collection and one listeners can dip in and out of with ease.  You can read my review of E.J. Newman's From Dark Places here and check out E.J. Newman's website here.
