Goodreads Synopsis:

At the bottom of the sea, in the wreck of a floating radio station, a lost recording has been discovered. After careful restoration, it is played for the first time – to reveal something incredible. It is the voice of the Doctor, broadcasting from Radio Bravo in 1966. He has travelled to Earth in search of the Hush – a terrible weapon that kills, silences and devours anything that makes noise.


I loved this audiobook!

The book starts out with a disclaimer that the recording was found in the sea, so there may be problems with the audio. I love this introduction!

When the narrator started speaking, I thought he was doing a great impression of the Tenth Doctor. Then I realized it is David Tennant narrating! He was awesome! He’s my favourite Doctor. He also did great different voices for the other characters.

The story was spooky and exciting. It reminded me of the episode LIving Library. The creature, he Hush, is a lot like the vashtra neurada from that episode. It captured people and used their voices as a recording. It was very creepy.

I just loved this book! I highly recommend it for all Doctor Who fans.

What to read next:

  • Doctor Who: Pest Control by Peter Anghelides (narrated by David Tennant)


  • Doctor Who: The Day of the Troll by Simon Messingham (narrated by David Tennant)
