Doctor Who: The Eyeless & The Story of Martha - Audio Covers & Info

BBC Audio have revealed the covers and synopsis of two upcoming Doctor Who audio CDs based on recently released novels: 

THE EYELESS - written by Russel Tovey, read by Lance Parkin 
At the heart of the ruined city of Arcopolis is the Fortress. It’s a brutal structure placed here by one of the sides in a devastating intergalactic war that’s long ended. Fifteen years ago, the entire population of the planet was killed in an instant by the weapon housed deep in the heart of the Fortress. Now only the ghosts remain.

The Doctor arrives, and determines to fight his way past the Fortress’s automatic defences and put the weapon beyond use. But he soon discovers he’s not the only person in Arcopolis. What is the true nature of the weapon? Is the planet really haunted? Who are the Eyeless? And what will happen if they get to the weapon before the Doctor?The Doctor has a fight on his hands. And this time he’s all on his own.

THE STORY OF MARTHA - written by Dan Abnett, read by Freema Agyeman
For a year, while the Master ruled over Earth, Martha Jones travelled the world telling people stories about the Doctor. She told people of how the Doctor has saved them before, and how he will save them again. This is that story. 

It tells of Martha’s travels from her arrival on Earth as the Toclafane attacked and decimated the population through to her return to Britain to face the Master. It tells how she spread the word and told people about the Doctor. The story of how she survived that terrible year.

But it’s more than that. This is also a collection of the stories she tells - the stories of adventures she had with the Doctor that we haven’t heard about before. The stories that inspired and saved the world...

The Eyeless is out now at all good CD stores and The Story of Martha is on sale from 4th June. Both audios are priced £9.99 per copy.
