Note:  Audio reading of the new series novel. This is a limited-release “library edition”, published by Chivers Audiobooks, a subsidiary of AudioGO/BBC Audio — the differences between this and the usual BBC Audio releases are threefold: 1) The availability is much more limited, being made available for purchase only via the AudioGO Web site; 2) The discs are burned onto CD-Rs rather than being “regular” pressed CDs; 3) The discs come packaged in an oversized library “wallet”-style case, rather than the usual CD jewel box. This reflects the fact that the primary audience for these library editions are public libraries (however since they are technically available for purchase by the general public via AudioGO, hence why they qualify for inclusion on this site).

Cover blurb:
In the far future, the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack find a world on which fiction has been outlawed. A world where its [sic] a crime to tell stories, a crime to lie, a crime to hope and a crime to dream.

But now somebody is challenging the status quo. A pirate TV station urges people to fight back. And the Doctor wants to help until he sees how easily dreams can turn into nightmares.

With one of his companions stalked by shadows and the other committed to an asylum, the Doctor is forced to admit that fiction can be dangerous after all. Though perhaps it is not as deadly as the truth.

Camille Coduri is probably best known for playing Rose’s mother, Jackie Tyler, in Doctor Who. Other TV credits include Sinchronicity, Honest and the role of Shelley in Him & Her. On film, she has been seen in Nuns on the Run, King Ralph and The Business.
