Fans of British science fiction series Dr. Who who have missed watching some of its best installments have reason to rejoice. Thanks to Audioboo’s partnership with BBC, fans can relive Dr. Who’s adventures by buying audio novelizations of the hit series.
According to Audioboo’s website, audio adventures of the First Doctor up to the Fifth Doctor are available for purchase on the site for a value-for-money price. Audio-exclusive adventures, such as that of the Eleventh Doctor, The Jade Pyramid, were also up for sale on the platform as well.
The audiobooks were narrated by actors Catherine Tate and Camille Coduri, to name a few. English actor and director, Matt Smith, who plays the Eleventh Doctor, also narrated one of the audiobook adventures.
The Dr. Who audiobooks retail between £6.79 and £13.49 on Audioboo. BBC also sells an extensive range of Dr. Who audiobooks on its BBC Shop.
Dr. Who follows the journey of the Doctor through the universe and in different worlds using his TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) or time-travelling space craft. Along the way, the Doctor meets companions and enemies while trying to save people and entire civilizations.
Dr. Who regenerates his body when severely wounded, also changing his appearance and personality in the process. The plot device has allowed the series to use new actors to portray Dr. Who’s different “incarnations.”
Hailed as the YouTube of digital audio, Audioboo is poised to become the internet’s biggest digital audio social media platform. It was designed by Audioboom Group PLC (BOOM.L), a publicly traded company on the London Stock Exchange.
Audioboo currently trades at a stock price of $5.39, up by 2.76 percent from its previous close. The company’s stocks were given a “buy” rating by Beaufort Securities, which initiated coverage on its stocks two weeks ago.
Audioboo allows individuals and content partners to record, edit, and distribute spoken word content in their own branded channels on Audioboo.
BBC is just one of the UK-based media partners of Audioboo. Other media partners of the digital audio streaming platform include The Guardian, and Channel 4.
Early this month, Audioboo signed CBS Radio Limited and Sky Sports as its two new media partners. Under the contract, the two broadcasting companies will be able to set up 24/7 channels on the site where they can upload their breaking news updates.
Audioboo has an estimated 2.5 million registered users and around 13 million active users across third-party platforms and partner sites, according to an independent report on IBTimes.
