Catherine Tate reads another exciting audio-exclusive story

"Tate's reading is a joy" Doctor Who Magazine

Catch up with the Doctor's latest adventures in a brand new audio exclusive from BBC Audiobooks. The Nemonite Invasion, released on February 12th 2009 and priced at £9.78, is read by Catherine Tate and sees the Doctor and Donna take on a race of dangerous bloodsucking aliens in a thrilling story, with specially composed and performed music and sound effects.

When the sky rips open somewhere over Dover, two objects hurtle out of the Vortex and crash-land in the sea. One is the TARDIS, out of control and freefalling – but the other, a mysterious crystalline sphere, is far more sinister.

The Doctor and Donna are rescued and taken to a secret command centre in the Dover cliffs. It's May 1940, and Vice-Admiral Ramsey is about to finalise one of the most daring plans of the Second World War: Operation Dynamo. But something else has got inside the War Tunnels, a parasitic Nemonite from the crashed sphere. Its aim is to possess all humans and spawn millions of young. The Doctor and Donna must fight for their lives in order to save both Operation Dynamo and the world at large.

The Nemonite Invasion, written specially for audio by David Roden, is the third title in the popular Doctor Who audio exclusives range, which features Pest Control read by David Tennant and The Forever Trap read by Catherine Tate. There are also four Sarah Jane Adventures titles available, all read by Elisabeth Sladen who plays Sarah Jane in the hit CBBC series.
