This Audio Original story is exclusively available from BBC Audiobooks, and is not available in print form or as TV episode. Previous Doctor Who Audio Originals include Pest Control and The Forever Trap. When the sky rips open somewhere over Dover, two objects hurtle out of the Vortex and crash-land in the sea. One is the TARDIS, out of control and freefalling - but the other, a mysterious crystalline sphere, is far more sinister...
The Doctor and Donna are rescued and taken to a secret command centre in the Dover cliffs. It's May 1940, and Vice-Admiral Ramsey is about to finalise one of the most daring plans of the Second World War: Operation Dynamo. But something else has got inside the War Tunnels, a parasitic Nemonite from the crashed sphere. Its aim is to possess all humans and spawn millions of young. The Doctor and Donna must fight for their lives in order to save both Operation Dynamo and the world at large...
The Nemonite Invasion features the Doctor and Donna, as played by David Tennant and Catherine Tate in the hit BBC Television series Doctor Who. Written specially for audio by David Roden, it is read by Catherine Tate, with additional music and sound effects.

Stunning - terrific story, very well read

A classic Doctor Who story set in Earth's past with added alien threat. If I had to choose I might just make this my favourite Who audiobook ever - Catherine Tate is as consummately skilled as David Tennant at portraying various characters with different voices, but probably what makes this one stand out is that she herself is narrating a story that is framed from Donna's perspective. Plus - it's a cracker! Make this your next download, you won't regret it.

It rocks!

This is like a lost episode for season 4. The Nemonite Invasion has it all. Besides being an interesting story, with lots of well developed characters, it is decidedly creepy and suspenseful. Catherine Tate can really bring any character to life --especially the Doctor. Donna is quirky as usual. The Doctor's personality is spot on -- I could imagine it all in my mind. Without giving away the plot, the story flows through a series of events that will make you laugh, shiver, and maybe even cry.

It's a must read, my favorite of all things Dr. Who.

Written Donna read by the voice of Donna is an improvement on what I've been coming across. Donna seems to be a hard character to write for, because I really haven't come across any Donna story that is as accurate as television Donna. They cover her harsh snarky side, but very few are able to capture her kind compassionate side. This piece does fairly well.
It sounds better, of course, when it's read by Catherine Tate, although I don't like her Doctor voice as well as some others'. Kind of reminds me of the DoctorDonna at the end of season 4, and we all know what happened then.
Also, what is it with these authors choosing insect-like aliens. It's just gross. That, and parasites sticking appendages in the backs of people's necks. Ew.
