"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.

This is amazing. Plz more with the Original Cast!!

If you could sum up The X-Files: Cold Cases in three words, what would they be?

Excellent. Awesome. Wonderful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mulder and Scully, of course.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This is my first time.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I laughed and wanted to cry. I was so happy to hear David and Gillian as Mulder and Scully. To hear the Lone Gunmen and Skinner.

Any additional comments?

My only criticism is not for this but for CC. William is Mulder's son, CC. Come on. Anyway, other than that. This was excellent. Excellent.

Brilliant X-File!

Not the standard audio book. Performed like a radio play, you are completely swept up in the story. This book includes conspiracy and aliens and even the old favorite monster of the week. The chapters are episodes and there are several during the 4hr time frame . I would recommend this to every X-Files fan, and anyone who loves a well told story!

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.

need more of this..


I've been a big fan of X-Files since I was a kid and this brings back all kinds of feelings for me to hear the originl casts' voice. It's like I'm watching the series in my mind. The story is great as you can expect. The soundeffects and bgm were awesome. I actually binge listened to this audible today and torn between wanting to know the end of the story and don't want to finish it so quickly. It's too short. I hope they will do more of this.

Awesome (don't listen in the the dark)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very engaging audio, spooky and intense and not just for x-files fans.

What other book might you compare The X-Files: Cold Cases to and why?

The Never Hero: The Chronicles of Jonathan Tibbs, Book 1 <br/><br/>also a mysterious style of book with a hero that you root for to save the day

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

the voice work is powerful and really brings you into this world, you know its good if you get the chills and goosebumps

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

we already made a movie but maybe we'll make a sequel? HAHAHAAHA

Any additional comments?

if you listen in the dark maybe have a flashlight handy, or light some candles for extra effect :)

I wanted to believe and I did !!

The voice acting on this is great I love the fact the original actors play themselves on the book it’s like having a super long xfiles episode on my phone to listen to. Great storyline and fun to listen to kept me interested from start to finish.
