The Doctor's been everywhere and everywhen in the whole of the universe and seems to know all the answers. But ask him what happened to the Starship Brilliant and he hasn't the first idea. Did it fall into a sun or black hole? Was it shot down in the first moments of the galactic war? And what's this about a secret experimental drive?

The Doctor is skittish. But if Martha is so keen to find out he'll land the TARDIS on the Brilliant, a few days before it vanishes. Then they can see for themselves. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avarill | 2/8/2014

    " Very clever premise, with lots of engaging characters. Freema does a great job with everyone and it's a treat to listen to her tell the story. I'm definitely going to look for Simon Guerrier's other work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie Grainger | 2/6/2014

    " This book is silly but fun, gotta love badger pirates!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tia | 1/28/2014

    " This book was okay. It started with an interesting plot that had a hard time getting anywhere. I read a lot of British books, but this one just didn't flow very well with the over-use of local slang. I also didn't think the author got the Doctor's voice down very well. All in all, it seemed long and I struggled to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 1/23/2014

    " Completely different to Mr. Guerrier's previous, timey-wimey 1st Doctor novel. Frankly, it's (delightfully) mad as a sack of badgers. Ironic, given that...oh, just READ IT yourself! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/20/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Siskoid Siskoid | 1/15/2014

    " It's a very slim story featuring a ship caught in a time loop and humanoid badger pirates that suffers from an all-too-flippant Doctor. It's a harmless romp, yet there's violence in it, and the Doctor's reaction seems off. Good use of the time loop for narrative effect, but yeah, it tends to repeat itself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla | 1/9/2014

    " About being stuck with the starship brilliant as it is stuck in a time loop right when attacked by pirates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary | 12/24/2013

    " Lots of wibly wobley, timey wimey stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 12/18/2013

    " Enjoyable read with martha and the doctor written closely to the style of the tv version. Space badgers ftw. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Hazlett | 11/11/2013

    " I love a good doctor who story. This one is rather silly but still entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Osborne | 11/8/2013

    " Wasn't sure at first, but once I got into the silly (it's supposed to be!) story and enjoyed the badger pirates, I was hooked. Lots of fun, and Martha has some great scenes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 6/10/2013

    " This is the strongest Doctor Who sci-fi book I've read, blending strikingly real descriptions of cutting edge science with thrilling adventure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 11/20/2012

    " Not my favorite of the Who books, but I tend to like the Rose or Donna novels over the Martha ones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie | 10/12/2012

    " This is what happens when you mess with the time line....actually not a half bad 'time intereference plot' book, though the jumping back and forth is jarring, and has a bittersweet ending to say the least. But still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 9/22/2012

    " Very much enjoyed this Doctor Who adventure. It was fun, silly and showed that a little kindness can go a long way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mariah | 6/29/2012

    " It's not so much 'reading' as is 'listening to Freema read the audio verson'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Writerlibrarian | 6/16/2012

    " This is one of the zany, fun and somewhat completely bonkers story. In that style, it's one of the most enjoyable ones. There's the time is not a linear thing going on and some cute aliens. So again an enjoyable romp. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corey Dutson | 5/23/2012

    " Cute. Has the feel of an off-story Who episode. A bit depressing at the end though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim Dunn | 2/24/2012

    " So many Doctor Who books (and I have all the new ones)....a written review is unnecessary for them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D20 | 6/6/2011

    " oh. my. god. FANTASTIC!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 6/4/2011

    " this was a good read i enjoyed it it was funny and also a little confusing with the recurring time loop restting its self the whole time "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noah Soudrette | 3/1/2011

    " While there are a lot of very likable characters and very vivid ones, it doesn't help the fact that the story is a bit thin and boring in the middle. Otherwise, it has a very strong and unusual ending and space pirate badgers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/10/2011

    " I love a good doctor who story. This one is rather silly but still entertaining. "
