Publisher's summary Edit
The story of a brand new adventure for the Doctor, as played by David Tennant in the hit BBC One series. The TARDIS arrives in an 18th Century village in the Yorkshire Moors, where livestock has been vanishing from the farmland and strange lights have been seen in the skies. Something is very wrong here, and he soon becomes involved in a nightmarish adventure, in which he is helped by a young local woman named Charity. Who is feeding on the blood of the locals, and where will the carnage stop...? This story has been written by Scott Handcock exclusively for BBC Audiobooks
to be added
- The Doctor again says his overcoat was given to him by Janis Joplin. He previously mentioned this in TV: Gridlock.
- The story was released in the same format as the BBC Books Tenth Doctor Adventures book series and their associated audio book adaptations, but was released exclusively to audio. It is the fourth of its kind following Pest Control, The Forever Trap and The Nemonite Invasion. It is the first to be read/performed by someone who is not a regular cast member, namely Michelle Ryan, who guest-starred in the special, Planet of the Dead.
- The story is also available as a download from the AudioGo website.
- The Doctor recalls the events of TV: Journey's End, specifically having to erase Donna Noble's memory and leave her in the care of Wilfred Mott and Sylvia Noble.
