The Runaway Train
Now I like a freebie, especially one as good as this - a new who audio, read by the new Who, Matt Smith, free with The Daily Telegraph today.
"Arriving on Earth in the midst of the American Civil War, the Doctor and Amy must get a posse together to help them retrieve an alien artefact that has fallen into the clutches of the Confederate Army. The terraforming device belongs to the Cei, a race of invaders who plan to use it to turn the planet into a new home world.
But neither the Army nor the aliens are keen to let the Doctor and his gang interfere with their plans, and give chase across the Wild West. The only hope of escape for the Doctor and friends is to catch the 3.25 to Arizona and race along ther newly-built transcontinental railroad."
This title will be officially released by BBC in October (pre order from their online shop here) and at just over an hour long it looks like we have the full unedited version. The first in the series, Ring of Steel', is released in August.
I'm listening to it at the moment and am very impressed with Matt Smith, who is a joy to listen to.
