Eleventh and last release in the 'Destiny of the Doctor' series of Doctor Who talking books. These are a range that feature a different Doctor in each release, with stories that stand largely alone but have a linking theme running through them. All of which has been designed to pay off in this story.

How did I get a copy of this?!? Although Audiogo, who released the other ten stories for the bbc, have gone into administration, the whole series was produced under licence for them by Big Finish Productions. And you can obtain a copy via their website.

It features the Eleventh Doctor as portrayed by Matt Smith on TV [Don't start! This was written before Destiny of the Doctor was shown]. It's read by Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara on TV. She also does all the voices, save for a couple of them, which are done by guest actors.

The story runs for just under seventy minutes, and is basically one long episode. The only breaks on the disc are the usual cd chapter ones.

Minimal sleeve notes give information about the era of the show that the story comes from, and other Big Finish products.

It is to be noted that although this story is designed to stand alone, and wrap up the linking theme as well, it would probably be possible to get into it if you haven't heard the other eleven. But if that's the case, one big plot development won't have the impact on you that it would otherwise. So hear the other ten first.

The story is set in Oxford, in the present day. The main character is Alice Watkins, a young graduate and physicist. She is assisting a professor who has built a time machine.

But when a strange man in a bow tie arrives, trouble and a lot of new experiences await for Alice. Because the Creevix are coming.

It's November 2013, and it's come and gone - the 50th anniversary of `Doctor Who'. And what a month it's been. We've had `The Day of the Doctor' with Matt Smith and David Tennant; the Doctor Who Live After Party on BBC Three with past and current Doctors and companions; and we had that brilliantly funny special by Peter Davison called `The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot'. It's been a truly enjoyable celebration of 50 years of `Doctor Who'.

Most importantly however, this month has been celebrating Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor. His era has contained a vast amount of spacey-timey adventures with the likes of 'The Eleventh Hour'; 'The Pandorica Opens'/'The Big Bang'; 'The Impossible Astronaut'/'Day of the Moon'; 'Asylum of the Daleks'; 'The Bells of Saint John' and 'The Name of the Doctor'. It's an era that's stuck in the minds of today's audience and Matt Smith has enchanted so many with his unique alien characteristics; his manner of dress - tweed jacket and bow tie (`Bow ties are cool!'); and his habit of eating fish fingers and custard.

I've been looking forward to this all year, and even more so since hearing who was to read/perform the story. I've been loving this series, and, brilliantly, Amazon have been getting my monthly CDs to me very cheaply and a few days before released. However, almost a month after the release, there seems to be no sign of the CD even existing as a solo release, and the 'Eleven Doctors, Eleven months', climaxing with the 50th celebrations is somewhat lost, and one wonders what the point of preordering the CD back in June was...

I've had this title on pre-order for months.

Obviously it's not Amazon's fault that AudioGo went bust (or so I assume) but for Amazon to continue to offer an item for sale when they can't supply is wrong.

This CD has been available from BigFinish (who co-produced it with AudioGo) for the past month, but Amazon are somehow unable to source it from them now that AudioGo have AudioGone.

I could speculate why that is, but I have no evidence to support my suppositions concerning the muscle of a global company as large as Amazon.

In the meantime, as mentioned above, the CD is available to buy direct from BigFinish.
