Publisher's Summary

Neve McIntosh reads an original novel featuring the Twelfth Doctor and Clara, as played by Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.

Gabby Nichols is putting her son to bed when she hears her daughter cry out. 'Mummy there's a daddy longlegs in my room!' Then the screaming starts...

Kevin Alperton is on his way to school when he is attacked by a mosquito. A big one. Then things get dangerous.But it isn't the dead man cocooned inside a huge mass of web that worries the Doctor. It isn't the swarming, mutated insects that make him nervous.

With the village cut off from the outside world, and the insects becoming more and more dangerous, the Doctor knows that unless he can decode the strange symbols engraved on an ancient stone circle, and unravel a mystery dating back to the Second World War, no one is safe.

Reading produced by Neil Gardner. Sound design by Simon Hunt. Executive producer: Michael Stevens.

    "Creepy good read"

    This is a creepy good story. Well paced and at times chillingly compelling. It could easily be a third or early fourth doctor novel. It has the oppressive village under siege feeling of that era and there are great moments designed to draw a laugh of recognition from the classic fans.

    On the downside the plot is uncannily close to the plot of Last of the Gaderine. Also an audio book. This is far better though.

    "Excellent"

    Have been listening to talking books since 1990 and have never listened to an entire book in one day before. This must indicates how gripping this one is
    If you're a Doctor Who fan, this will be right up your street. Enjoy!

    "Definitely "crawling""

    What is the obsession of the Doctor Who novels with horrible mutant bugs as the alien monster? I'm pretty sure this is the fourth or fifth novel I bought that has them. I suppose they're relateable. Definitely creepy. I almost set it aside when sedan-sized mosquitoes flew in. But I stuck it out and was pleased that I did. Overall it's a really good story with strong character arcs, which is the important part for me. Neve McIntosh is a brilliant narrator as well, I'll be looking for more books narrated by her.

    "Creepy"

    Lots of fun but creepy too. Great storytelling.
    I enjoyed the narrators voice and her melodic tone.
    Good to hear a story with the 12th Doctor.

    "attempts at horror fall flat"

    the plotline is simple and the villian 2 dimensional. the other characters are well written and the narrator carries the story well. overall alright but not great.
