Mark Morris – Doctor Who: Darkstar Academy

When the TARDIS is buffeted by “time slippage”, the Doctor experiences a terrible vision of the end of everything. Tracking the source of the disruption, he takes Rory and Amy to what appears to be an English public school in the 1950s. But the friends discover that there are some very unusual things about Darkstar Academy.

For a start the prefects carry guns, and then there is the strange force field that surrounds the perimeter. Not to mention the foot-long, crab-like creatures with spiny, armored bodies…. The Doctor discovers that the whole place is in terrible danger, but with a swarm of carnivorous creatures on the loose, what can he, Amy, and Rory do to help prevent a terrible disaster?

Written specially for audio by Mark Morris, Darkstar Academy features the Doctor, Amy, and Rory as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television. It is read by Alexander Armstrong.

An excellent reading of a fine third doctor story that’s better than the original television transmission.
