The Phaeron travelled among the stars using roads made from time and space but left only relics behind when they disappeared over a million years ago. But what actually happened to the Phaeron?
In the far future, humans discover the last Phaeron road - and the Doctor and Clara join the mission to see where it leads. Each member of the team knows exactly what they're looking for - but only the Doctor knows exactly what they'll find.
Because only the Doctor knows the true secret of the Phaeron: a secret so terrible and powerful that it must be buried in the deepest grave imaginable....
A complete and unabridged reading by Dan Starkey, who plays Strax the Sontaran in the BBC TV series.

the book itself - very good!
I started listening to this immediately after finishing “Big Bang Generation”, so I had some trouble at first getting used to Dan Starkey after spending so much time with Lisa Bowerman. Advise for the future: Spend some days with another audiobook.
Nevertheless, Starkey is one of my favourite narrators and again, I think he did a great job here.
The story itself is a bit dark, directly from the beginning you’re sure not everyone on this ship will survive until the end. The Doctor is also more serious here, and having just seen the 3-parts-final of series 9 I think that suited him very well (although, of course, the book must have been written maybe a year ago).
It would have made an excellent TV-episode.
But as the finale of these “Glamour Chronicles” it leaves me somehow disappointed. In my opinion, it’s a wasted opportunity, as you’d say in German “neither fish nor meat”. The books are too loosely related to be real “Chronicles”, but also not entirely independent.
