Publisher's Summary

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


  • The Doctor once again states that his overcoat was given to him by Janis Joplin. He previously mentioned this in DW: Gridlock.



Behind the Scenes

The story was released under 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, although Ryan did guest star in the special Planet of the Dead.
