At the heart of the ruined city of Arcopolis is the Fortress. It's a brutal structure placed there by one of the sides in a devastating intergalactic war that's long ended.

Fifteen years ago, the entire population of the planet was killed in an instant by the weapon housed in the heart of the Fortress. Now only the ghosts remain. The Doctor arrives, and determines to fight his way past the Fortress's automatic defenses and put the weapon beyond use. But he soon discovers he's not the only person in Arcopolis.

What is the true nature of the weapon? Is the planet really haunted? Who are the Eyeless? And what will happen if they get to the weapon before the Doctor? The Doctor has a fight on his hands. And this time he's all on his own. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsty Robson | 2/15/2014

    " For my first Doctor Who novel, I rather liked it. I definately would read more of these novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alesia | 2/7/2014

    " Good twists, and a solid segue from after the events of Series 4 to the upcoming specials. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 2/3/2014

    " Probably the best novelisation I have read so far "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Verity | 1/29/2014

    " Great great story and lots of fun really easy to read. Its very exciting and imaginative. The tenth Dr is done very well as are the other characters. I highly recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/24/2014

    " An engaging storyline with the Doctor by himself. And yes, he feels a gap that isn't filled in this book. An old city, a struggling race and an ancient weapon. There's also ghosts and some creepy glass aliens. It's quite action orientated but very quick moving. I doubt the bBc would ever have the budget to do this one. A good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 1/13/2014

    " The only possible rival to this -- the absolute best of the 10th Doctor novels -- is "Prisoner of the Daleks". There is a depth Parkin brings to the 10th Doctor's character that borders on the terrifying...and the heart-wrenching. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evy Bernier | 11/4/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. While this is an unusual story as it does not include any companions it was well written and entertaining. The idea of an ultimate weapon was interesting to contemplate. The insight into a group of people who survived when their world was destroyed was intriguing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Appelcline | 10/20/2013

    " Though I miss the continuity and character arc of the former Doctor Who novel series, this is still a fine book with interesting dilemmas and neat new monsters that's in no way a juvenile. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Khallandra | 7/22/2013

    " Meh. It was okay, I really find that no companion means the story is harder to sympathise with. I didn't like any of the pseudo companions so it wasn't that interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyndi | 4/28/2013

    " I've only read a few Doctor Who novels, but this was definitely the most satisfying. Great story, compelling characters, and a strong ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqi | 4/21/2013

    " Really, really good, but the ending was rather abrupt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shinyfox | 3/6/2013

    " Hands down, one of the best Doctor Who books that I have read. The plot was engaging and well planned out and the Doctor was actually believable, unlike many other Doctor Who books that I have read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 11/18/2011

    " This is one of the rare Doctor Who books that I did not enjoy at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel Mero | 8/30/2011

    " This is the first Doctor Who book to feature the Doctor without a companion. It is an easy read with plenty of plot twists to keep your interest. There are even a few mentions of Rose for all of us Rose fans as well! Overall, it was one of the better Doctor Who novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Schmidt | 6/16/2011

    " Quick and easy to read, but really entertaining, just like the others. This one really emphasizes how lonely the Doctor gets when he doesn't have a companion, you couldn't help but wish you could give him a hug. :) Another great Doctor Who book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Glorious.Clio | 4/27/2011

    " Okay, maybe it was the lack of companion that made me not like this book. There was a definite lack of banter, and the plot was very... loose. I wasn't impressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lovisa | 6/11/2010

    " Listened to the audio book. Very good indeed! It was really well read and captured the doctors voice exceptionally well as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amelie | 4/29/2010

    " I was really disappointed with The Eyeless. I didn't feel that Lance Parkin really got a feel for David Tennant's Doctor. The story didn't flow very well. This is one Doctor Who story I won't be tempted to read again, even though the book will remain in my collection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susanne | 12/15/2009

    " Interesting story, well written. This one felt more juvenile-oriented than others I've read. Unfortunately, I was really rooting for the sociopathic pseudo-companion to be killed off. Her annoyance factor dampened my enthusiasm for the story as a whole. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim Dunn | 11/19/2009

    " Definitely not my favourite Doctor Who book...often dragged out. If you've never read one of these novels before, please don't start with this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corey Dutson | 7/15/2009

    " Hey look everyone, a new series Doctor Who novel that actually shows the other side of The Doctor! About goddamned time. I still felt that the skimmed his character a bit more than they should have, but The Eyeless is definitely one of the best new series novels I've read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crazy | 5/21/2009

    " this book is one of the most well thought through doctor who ever. I loved it. it was a real page turner for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Husky Ovcharka Shiba-Inu | 4/24/2009

    " it was fine. fun read. nothing extraordinary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 11/17/2008

    " This is a fabulous reference book attempting to put the Doctor Who universe is chronological order. (which is quite a feat of itself!)

    It's fun for an afternoon of browsing through interesting facts and looking up obscure references while waiting for the next episode to come out. ^___^ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noah | 11/23/2007

    " This is a mammoth update to Lance Parkin's earlier work, The History of the Universe. Parkin takes every event from Doctor Who history and arranges it chronologically, with a dating note for each and every entry. Stunning "
