Unabridged reading of the new series novels Revenge of the Slitheen and Judgement of the Judoon. This is a limited-release “library edition”, published by Chivers Audiobooks, a subsidiary of AudioGO/BBC Audio — the differences between this and the usual BBC Audio releases are threefold:
1) The availability is much more limited, being made available for purchase only via the AudioGO Web site
2) The discs are burned onto CD-Rs rather than being “regular” pressed CDs
3) The discs come packaged in an oversized library “wallet”-style case, rather than the usual CD jewel box
This reflects the fact that the primary audience for these library editions are public libraries (however since they are technically available for purchase by the general public via AudioGO
The Slitheen Excursion
500BC — King Actaeus and his subjects live in mortal fear of the awesome gods who have come to visit their kingdom in ancient Greece. Except The Doctor, visiting with university student June, knows they’re not gods at all, they’re aliens. For the aliens, it’s the perfect holiday — they get to tour the sights of a primitive planet and even take part in local customs. Like gladiatorial games, or hunting down and killing humans who won’t be missed. With June’s enthusiastic help, The Doctor soon meets the travel agents behind this deadly package holiday company — his old enemies the Slitheen. But can he bring the Slitheen excursion to an end without endangering more lives? And how are events in ancient Greece linked to a modern-day alien plot to destroy what’s left of the Parthenon?

But the launch of the new Terminal 13 hasn’t been as smooth as expected. And things are about to get worse… When The Doctor arrives, he finds the whole terminal locked down. The notorious Invisible Assassin is at work again, and the Judoon troopers sent to catch him will stop at nothing to complete their mission. With the assassin loose on the mean streets of New Memphis, The Doctor is forced into a strange alliance. Together with teenage private eye Nikki and a ruthless Judoon Commander, The Doctor soon discovers that things are even more complicated — and dangerous — than he first thought…
