Doctor Who: Blackout

Doctor Who: Blackout Review

November 9th, 1965. New York City is plunged into darkness, a taxi driver has bad dreams, and an invisible spacecraft hovers ominously above the skyline. As an extra-terrestrial disease sweeps the populace, Amy and Rory must sabotage the city’s water supply to slow the spread of infection, and a dying Doctor holds another man’s life in his hands. With the death toll rising, and his companions stalked through the streets by alien businessmen, the Doctor is forced to make a terrible decision. How far must he go to save his friends? Written specially for audio by Oli Smith, 'Blackout' features the Doctor, Amy and Rory as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television. It is read by Stuart Milligan, who played President Nixon in the 2011 TV episodes ‘The Impossible Astronaut’ and ‘Day of the Moon’.

    Doctor Who: Blackout Reviews

  • Jim C

    This is an audiobook based on the television series. In this one, The Doctor, Amy, and Rory visit New York City in 1965 and something is amiss.This was a quick listen but it wasn't the best audiobook ...

  • Caitlin

    The various voices and accents used for the characters were distracting. But otherwise a fairly simple alien invasion, not up to the usual twisty plots you expect....

    New York City is being abused again, alien abduction and medical experiments....

  • Melissa (Jen & Mel's Book Nook)

    This was pretty good, the only thing I didn't really get used to was the narrator's accents....

    always entertaining...

    Another OK novel. It probably would've worked better as a TV episode. One-time listen only. ...
