There is only death.
A virulent disease that killed millions. A missing scientist. An ancient race of salvagers who collect and preserve the dead. The quarantined planet Antikon connects them all.
When The Doctor arrives on a sky station above Antikon, a single accident has already set in motion a chain of events that will mean the death of every living thing.
And the only way he can stop it is to die. Again..
- The Death Collectors was the one hundred and ninth monthly Doctor Who audio release produced by Big Finish Productions.
- This audio drama was recorded on 17 and 18 March 2008 at The Moat Studios.
- REF: AHistory arbitrarily places this story in 4300, as it seems to feature humans in the far future.
- The Doctor refuses to die to the sound of Madame Butterfly, which he calls “elevator music”. Ironically, that same incarnation would be die in surgery to that opera in The TV Movie
