Dead Air Tops Polls

He may have burned up at the beginning of the year but the Tenth Doctor is still packing a punch from beyond the great Gallifreyan grave as his final BBC Audio book Dead Air has been voted 2010 Audio Book of the year.

Written by James Goss and read by David Tennant himself, Dead Air was the last of seven exclusive to audio adventures for the Tenth Doctor and was quite a timey-wimey affair.

Proud Goss had the following to say:

I’m absolutely thrilled that Doctor Who: Dead Air has won – it’s an amazing reading by David Tennant, and I’m really chuffed that it’s gone down as well as it has, not just with Doctor Who fans but with the public as well.

Michael Stevens Commissioning Editor for AudioGO also had a few words of praise:

This is a gratifying achievement which pays tribute to the combined talents of writer James Goss, reader David Tennant, and the AudioGO production team who created a multi-layered adventure for the Doctor combining voice, music and atmospheric special sound.

Dead Air beat the likes of Adrian Mole – The Prostrate Years, Othello, Animal Farm, Shakespeare in Love and War Horse. Which means that technically it beat a Shakespeare story twice!

If you’re one those that voted following our previous story, feel very pleased with yourselves!

Dead Air is available now from Amazon for just £6.11!


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
