Watchers is a new audiobook, written and narrated by Matthew Waterhouse and featuring Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.

When the TARDIS is trapped in the Vortex, the Doctor and Adric realise that something immensely powerful is draining time itself from the universe. The wrecks of other ships – the products of countless experiments in time – exist in a fused cluster in the Vortex. None of them can escape and many of their crews are dead.

As the Doctor tries to free the TARDIS, he and Adric encounter threats from other groups, desperate to escape, including a hostile reptile species, mechanically enhanced cyborgs – and Daleks. But someone from the Doctor’s own world is watching. Someone who will prove useful when this Doctor reaches the end of his life…
