The Crawling Terror - Audio CD Cover & Details

BBC Audio have revealed the cover and details for an audio adaptation of a previously released Doctor Who novel, read on for further details:

THE CRAWLING TERROR - written by Mike Tucker, read by Neve McIntosh
Gabby Nichols is putting her son to bed when she hears her daughter cry out. ‘Mummy there’s a daddy longlegs in my room!’ Then the screaming starts… Kevin Alperton is on his way to school when he is attacked by a mosquito. A big one. Then things get dangerous. But it isn’t the dead man cocooned inside a huge mass of web that worries the Doctor. It isn’t the swarming, mutated insects that make him nervous. 

With the village cut off from the outside world, and the insects becoming more and more dangerous, the Doctor knows that unless he can decode the strange symbols engraved on an ancient stone circle, and unravel a mystery dating back to the Second World War, no one is safe.

Doctor Who: The Crawling Terror audio CD is on sale from 15th January 2015 at all good CD stores priced £25.00 per copy.

The series eight premiere was the show’s highest-rated series premiere ever on BBC America, and is the first BBC Worldwide series ever to simultaneously hold the #1 slot in the Main TV Season Charts across all major Electronic Sell-through platforms in the U.S within 48 hours of episode 1’s release on August 24th 2014. In Canada, on the Space channel, the first 10 episodes of series eight have seen a 22% uplift in consolidated audience size on series seven.
