Doctor Who The Hounds of Artemis


The Hounds of Artemis was an exclusive-to-audio story from AudioGo released in May 2011. The story is read by Matt Smith and Clare Corbett, marking the first time that BBC Audio has had two actors perform an audio story since the revival in 2005.

Publisher's summary Edit

When Lord Woolcroft and his team break open the fabled Tomb of Artemis, sealed for thousands of years, they are astonished by what they find inside...

The Doctor and Amy have come to Smyrna in 1929 to investigate a mystery. The Doctor knows something very bad happened there: something caused a lot of people to die and an entire, magnificent Temple to be found and then immediately lost again.

But he doesn't know what is picking off the archaeologists one by one, or how it is connected to the terrifying howling in the night. And as he and Amy get closer to the terrible truth behind an ancient evil, he begins to wish he'd never found out.

Notes Edit

  • The Guardian released an advance copy of the story on 19 February 2011.
  • The story was also available as a download from the AudioGO website before the company went into administration.

Delays Edit

The Hounds of Artemis was originally announced for release on 8 April 2010, which would have made it the first major spin-off project to feature the Eleventh Doctor and the first audio story to feature the Doctor and Amy. It was delayed to 3 June. Shortly after, it was delayed to April 2011.[2] It was delayed again, for unknown reasons, until 5 May 2011.[3]

  • The story was originally going to be read by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, but for unknown reasons, this never materialised. Instead, Clare Corbett instead acts as narrator, reading entries from Amy's diary.
