Doctor Who: Dead Air Audiobook Due For Release

BBC Audio have recently confirmed that they plan to release a new Tenth Doctor audiobook, titled Dead Air, early next month. The audiobook is written by James Goss and is read by The Tenth Doctor himself, David Tennant. Dead Air follows on from previous new series audios; Pest Control, The Forever Trap, The Nemonite Invasion, The Rising Night, The Day of the Troll and The Last Voyage. Each of these six audiobooks have already been released and are currently available in stores around the United Kingdom and Ireland. Dead Air will feature The Doctor traveling alone, with no official companions joining him for the story.

The following synopsis is for Dead Air by James Goss:

‘Hello, I’m the Doctor. And, if you can hear this, then one of us is going to die.’

At the bottom of the sea, in the wreck of a floating radio station, a lost recording has been discovered. After careful restoration, it is played for the first time – to reveal something incredible. It is the voice of the Doctor, broadcasting from Radio Bravo in 1966. He has travelled to Earth in search of the Hush – a terrible weapon that kills, silences and devours anything that makes noise – and has tracked it to a boat crewed by a team of pirate DJs. With the help of feisty Liverpudlian Layla and some groovy pop music, he must trap the Hush and destroy it – before it can escape and destroy the world…

Written specially for audio by James Goss and read by David Tennant, Dead Air features the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

Dead Air will be released in stores across the United Kingdom and Ireland on the fourth of March. It will be sold for £8.99 and will be added to iTunes on the same day or soon after.

The Eleventh Doctor, as played by Matt Smith, is set to make his official audiobook debut with Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) in The Hounds of Artemis. The Hounds of Artemis is also written by James Goss and is expected in April, just after Doctor Who's fifth series kicks off on BBC One and BBC HD.
