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.

It is told through the eyes of occult doctor Dr Martin Hesselius, who is played by Tennant. Continue reading at 'The Bookseller'
