"Now that was some serious, bleeping fun. For a few hours – amidst the sounds of morphing extraterrestrials, ignited flamethrowers, and the sonic tremble of spaceships overhead – it felt like I had stolen away into the world of The X-Files and been treated to my very own mini-season. Of course, listening to Duchovny and Anderson verbally spar as the iconic pairing of Mulder and Scully is an X-Philes' delight. But, for me, hearing the liquid honey – though sinister – croon of William B. Davis' Cigarette Smoking Man AND the giddy shenanigans of the original Lone Gunmen was worth the price of admission alone. Add to that top-notch sound design and a story that doses out ‘Monster of the Week' thrills and ‘mytharc’ reveals (canonical arguments be damned, this was just too fun), and you have yourself one can't-miss listen for fans." -Doug, Audible Editor

Description

The series that had a generation looking to the sky gets a breathtaking audio reprise in an original full-cast dramatization featuring actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning to voice FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris - with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter - and adapted specifically for the audio format by aural auteur Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Alien: Out of the Shadows), and directed by William Dufris of AudioComics, Cold Cases marks yet another thrilling addition to the pantheon of X-Files stories. Featuring a mind-blowing and otherworldly soundscape of liquefying aliens, hissing creatures, and humming spacecraft, listeners get to experience the duo's investigations like never before.

Set after the events of The X-Files: I Want to Believe and providing additional backstory to the incidents that pulled Mulder and Scully out of reclusion prior to 2016's miniseries revival, a database breach at FBI headquarters allows an unknown group to access and capitalize on those investigations left unsolved - dubbed cold cases - by the secret department once known as The X-Files. As friends and foes of the agency long thought gone begin to inexplicably reappear, former agents Mulder and Scully come out of anonymity to face a growing conspiracy that involves not only their former department but the US government and forces not of this world.

Here, fans are treated once again to Mulder and Scully's irreplicable chemistry as only the series' leads could deliver, Duchovny's deadpan and cynical aloofness finding its natural counterpoint in Anderson's unwavering intelligence and rigidity. Appearances from series regulars and the actors who made them fan favorites round out this must-listen arc: the gruff, no-BS righteousness of Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi); the distinctive click-puff of the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis); and the stooge-like hijinks of three beloved conspiracy theorists called the Lone Gunmen (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).

Whether you're a believer or a skeptic, find your "I Want to Believe" poster. Break out that makeshift alien stiletto. Grab a pack of Morley cigarettes.

The truth is out there. You just have to listen.

X-files fans must listen

It's rare to find an audiobook that is narrated by all of the original series' actors. Like most fans, I missed Mulder and Skully's adventures. It felt like I was listening to an episode of the X-Files. I loved it. If you are a fan of the show definitely check it out.

tv writers shouldn't write audiobooks

Actors were pretty good, but people who write for tv, a visual medium, probably shouldn't write audio books. Lots of bad sound effects to compensate for the lack of description of setting, characters, and action. I'm a huge X-Files fan, so I was super disappointed. The dialogue was funny and interesting, so I at least finished the series. I'd say skip it.

New Fan

I haven't really seen the tv show and only watched the film with the bees (and never saw the reboot) so my exposure to X-Files is really limited.

Overall, while I felt the audio production was above average and the voice acting pretty great, I didn't really understand the stories and kept wondering how everything was connected. I was expecting a regular novel but this was mostly just vignettes. I also found it hard to keep up with all the different characters; this is my first time listening to an audio book that sounded more like a podcast than a regular book.

I think this is something mostly for fans of the series who follow the franchise more closely. But I think my interest has peaked so I might check out the original series and reboot!

WHO & WHAT IS BEHIND ALL OF THIS?

Everybody in Saudi Arabia Speaks English
I was a huge fan of X-Files and never missed an episode and I have read some of the books. I did not feel that these stories were very strong or that they came off well in audio format. The sound effects and voice actors were great, but the TV series was very visual and that did not come off well here. The creatures were not as scary and the dialogue was weird. I have listened to a lot of dramatized books, but this was not done well when it comes to dialogue. There is a lot of telling of minor things, that other, better done dramatizations don't find it necessary to do. This hurt the flow of the story. In one episode, Mulder and Scully are in Saudi Arabia and everyone they meet speaks English automatically, with the exception of a German woman, who switches to English, when Scully mentions, that she does not speak German.

Five Episodes
This is five episodes of differing lengths. All but one episode follows a continuing story. Hosts, the second story and best story was an offshoot. It was about Flat Worm Men, a sequel to an episode from the series. I also felt bringing back the Smoking Man and various other characters who had been killed off in the series, was too much pandering. As a true fan, I was disappointed in this.

An amazing listen

The performance of the audiobook is outstanding and surprising! The sound effects and narration of the book was nastalgic and inline to the old TV shows as if I was actually watching the shows! A definite must and I hope for more like these!

Always an X-Files fan!!!

Where does The X-Files: Cold Cases rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Because it's X-Files it's at the top.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The X-Files: Cold Cases?

Hearing Mulder, Scully and Skinner's voice again.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Just hearing the narrators voice is a thrill.
