On their mission to explore the Mariana Trench at the very bottom of the ocean, the deepest and most inhospitable place on Earth, the crew of the deep sea vehicle Erebus make an unusual and startling discovery.
A battered blue police box.
As the Doctor, Romana and K9 join them on their journey, the submariners soon discover that the TARDIS is not the only unusual find lurking on the sea floor.
Super-intelligent squid, long-lost submarines and their miraculous occupants are only the start of their troubles. The Goblins are coming. And they won't let anyone out alive.
Directed By: Ken Bentley.

Where does Phantoms of the Deep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This recording fit the dramatization format for audiobooks very well. Great performances, a story that fits the medium, and matching well with the series. Many dramatized audio-only works lose the listener with too many characters. This book didn't do so, you always knew what was going on and who was talking.
What other book might you compare Phantoms of the Deep to and why?
The format is quite unusual. It's more like experiencing a 1979 Dr. Who with no visuals.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Rather than narration, it had a full cast.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The best Doctor returns!
Any additional comments?
It was a little short, but well worth it.
