A month ago we posted the cover for the upcoming Doctor Who audiobook “The Gemini Contagion”, and we now have the official synopsis. The story is read by Meera Syal (Nasreen Chaudhry in The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood). The Gemini Contagion will be available on CD or download from March 3rd at the recommended retail price of £9.25. See the synopsis for this story below:
The ice-planet Vinsk, in the year 2112. The all-new anti-viral handwash, Gemini, has been laced with Meme-Spawn: a sentient micro-organism which makes the user fluent in every language in the universe. However, manufacturer Zalnex made one crucial mistake. They didn’t test Gemini on humans, who are seized by the violent urge to communicate but speak every language all at once – with a manic, garbled shriek – and pass on the virus by touch.
The Doctor and Amy arrive on an Earth-bound cargo-ship loaded with Gemini, where a human crew are succumbing to the virus which has nasty second and third phases in store. When the Doctor and Amy are separated, they both know that it’s only a matter of time before Amy is infected. With the ship locked on course, and no way of curing the sufferers, the Doctor is faced with a terrible decision: save Amy, or Earth?
The Gemini Contagion will be available on CD or download from March 3rd.
