A story that uses some standard Doctor Who tropes: A boys academy with a military-like structure where boys run about bullying and then the monsters come. The stories twists are all telegraphed and as such fail to surprise. The story fails to build any emotional connection which is important for a story like this to work. Overall, a disappointing tale with little to recommend it.

Penelope works at the Horizon Art Gallery, tasked with watching the Paradox chamber, where viewers can see a clear view of the Paradox in the sky. Her job is to make sure people don't stare at it too long and go mad as many artists already have in trying to paint it. The e Doctor, Amy, and Rory arrive and end up floating through time and running into Penelope throughout her life.

This story is brilliantly written. There's a sense of mystery and horror at the center of this story as a monster begins to appear. It's a brilliant story with the main character being Penelope as opposed to the Doctor and Companions who float in and out of her life. The story is haunting, intelligent, and with a great twist. While the Doctor's not in it all the time, Writer James Goss captures his voice quite well. Raquel Cassidy's narration is superb as she brings this story to life and captures Penelope's ever-changing character. One of the best Doctor Who Audiobooks released by the BBC.

Black Out is a stand out in the Eleventh Doctor Audiobooks. This one doesn’t fall on stock, predictable Doctor Who books. Instead, it presents a mystery and a ticking bomb with a poison hitting 1960s New York City and the Doctor racing against time to find a cure to a disease that could kill him and his companions, but perhaps not the mysterious cab driver who finds himself at the center of the story.

In addition to the script, the production value is markedly better than many prior audiobooks which used sparse sound effects. This one brings the city and so many events to life in a much fuller sound.

The reader does a good job. He doesn’t mimic any of the main stars but does do a fair enough impression that you know who is supposed to be talking. The ending isn’t quite as good as the build up, but it’s not awful either. It’s a decent ending to a very good story. Overall, well worth a listen.

Mysterious disappearances are occurring with a hunting party in the Amazon rain forest when the Doctor, Amy, and Rory appear. The story has some elements that could make it really good (The character of the priest and Blazington are interesting characters) but they really don't do anything with them. The pacing is glacial during much of the first half (particularly for such a short production) but picks up in the second half and even goes a direction that was somewhat surprising given the set up. Overall, this book is another okay mediocre 11th Doctor Audiobook.
