"Doctor Who": The Hounds of Artemis : (Audio Original) CD-Audio
by James Goss
When Lord Woolcroft and his team break open the fabled Tomb of Artemis, sealed for thousands of years, they are astonished by what they find inside...The Doctor and Amy have come to Smyrna in 1929 to investigate a mystery.
The Doctor knows that something very bad happened there: something that caused a lot of people to die and an entire, magnificent Temple to be found and then immediately lost again.
But he doesn't know what is picking off the archaeologists one by one, or how it is connected to the terrifying howling in the night. And as he and Amy get closer to the terrible truth behind an ancient evil, he begins to wish he'd never found out.
Written specially for audio by James Goss, and read by Matt Smith as the Doctor and Clare Corbett as Helen Stapleton, The Hounds of Artemis features the Doctor and Amy Pond as played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television. 1 CD. 1 hr 15 mins.

Review by bluesalamanders
Amy and the Doctor visit an archeological dig in the middle of a crisis, with people disappearing and other strange things happening.Overall an enjoyable story with both the Doctor and Amy generally in character and an interesting enough plot that I couldn't predict (all) the twists. I was actually briefly worried for Amy's safety, which is unusual in these stories (since it's obvious that nothing permanent will ever happen to the main characters).Unfortunately, the end didn't make a whole lot of sense - the author conflated "telepathic" and "telekinetic", among other minor issues. But it is Doctor Who; it really only needs to make a certain amount of sense to be a fun story.
