"When a naval cruiser sinks in mysterious circumstances in the North Sea, all aboard are lost. Rose is saddened to learn that the brother of her friend, Keisha, was among the dead. And yet he appears to them as a ghostly apparition, begging to be saved from the coming feast... the feast of the drowned.

As the dead crew haunt loved ones all over London, the Doctor and Rose are drawn into a chilling mystery. What sank the ship, and why? When the cruiser's wreckage was towed up the Thames, what sinister force came with it?

The river's dark waters are hiding an even darker secret, as preparations for the feast near their conclusion..."

"This remains a relatively adult narrative... while Cole's descriptions of the bloated white faces of reanimated victims of drowning - all luridly enunciated by David Tennant - are quite gruesome.

Tennant uses his own Scottish accent for the voice of Vida, while the villainous Rear Admiral Crayshaw sounds remarkably like Baron Silas Greenback from Danger Mouse." - Richard McGinlay

The CD was also given away free by the UK magazine 'The Radio Times' over the course of two weeks. 

The first one in the December 23 - January 5th 2007 issue and the second one in the January 6 - 12th 2007 issue.

The interview with Stephen Cole was not on the CD's that were given away.
