Audible releases Halloween story starring David Tennant

Audible has commissioned a dramatization of Carmilla, a 19th century gothic vampire novella by J. Sheridan Le Fanu, starring David Tennant and Rose Leslie.

The story is about 18-year old Laura (played by Leslie) as she develops a deeply passionate friendship with a mysterious house-guest, Carmilla (Phoebe Fox), who turns out to be a vampire. It is told through the eyes of occult doctor Dr Martin Hesselius, who is played by Tennant. Continue reading at 'The Bookseller'
