The Eye of the Chase
Along with The Chase, July’s other release, The Eye of the Jungle, is an Eleventh Doctor tale with Amy and Rory, hooray! This tale finds the newest TARDIS crew in the Amazon rainforest in 1827 where a different kind of chase is taking place:
The Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in the jungle near a hurriedly abandoned campsite, where they are surrounded by hungry black caiman – huge lizards. Only the arrival of a man with a rifle sees off the giant beasts. Oliver Blazington has come to the forest to bag big game, and his companion Garrett is a naturalist, collecting exotic creatures for London Zoo. But the Doctor soon discovers that another very different hunter is stalking the Amazon. Animals and people have been disappearing without trace, and local villagers speak darkly of ‘The Eye of the Jungle’.
Amy senses that the all-seeing Eye is watching them – but she and Rory are powerless to intervene when it sets its sights on the Doctor…
Read by David Troughton (The War Games, Midnight), this is an audio exclusive written by Darren Jones.
The Eye of the Jungle is out on 7th July 2011 with an RRP of £13.25, but you can pick it up from Amazon for less than half price!
