I've took advantage of an Audible offer...99p for 3 months, which gives me 3 credits before my subscription goes up to full price.Which it won't, because I will cancel my subscription before that happens.
I thought I'd start a general thread for any other Audible enthusiasts to get recommendations, etc.
So, in my Library I've currently got:
The Masks of Nyarlathotep (from a previous sign-up) The Bounty of Ceres
Which leaves me with 2 credits over the coming months to get a couple more, so I'm thinking of:
Neverwhere (BBC adaptation in 6 parts, which I have on cassette I think)
Doctor Who: Classic TV adventures vol 1 or 2 (narrated soundtracks of the TV episodes, including some pretty good ones, and about 16hrs long!)
Doctor Who: The Earth Adventures (5 Target novel readings including Fury from the Deep and The Pyramids of Mars) 25hrs long.

Here’s what I’ve been listening to. Alan Partridge: From the Oasthouse After Henry Second Thoughts An Actors Life for Me Doctor Who: The Smugglers to The Moonbase Doctor Who: the First Doctor Lost Stories Driving Miss Daisy All Gas and Gaiters
I'm probably in the minority here, but I rarely use Audible to purchase audio drama. (with the odd exception: The Conception of Terror, Welcome to Our Village Please Invade Carefully) I prefer to take advantage of Audible to get my hands on unabridged audiobooks that would otherwise be too expensive and take up too much storage space in my CD collection. Plus any opportunity to get multiple novels with the use of 1 credit is always welcome. The Audible App is a godsend for having 20+ hours of audio entertainment in the palm of your hands during a commute.
Some of my personal favourites for that reason, include:
Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection
The Monster Collection (The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein, Dracula)
H.G. Wells: The Science Fiction Collection (The War of the Worlds, The First Men in the Moon, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, The Island of Dr Moreau)
Orwell Collection: Animal Farm & 1984
Shakespeare: The Complete Works by Argo Classics
The Mythos Volumes (Mythos, Heroes, Troy) by Stephen Fry
American Gods (A Full Cast Production) by Neil Gaiman
IT by Stephen King
Also, you get a lot of classic plays for free as a member. The 3 Theban plays by Sophocles (Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, Antigone) was a hidden gem I wouldn't have tried out without it's ready availability.

I like the mythology books (two so far, I think, with a third on the way) read by Stephen Fry.
I've compiled all of my Big Finishes purchases into a single massive document, alongside those on my wishlist (bolded, right-justified). Check it out to see what I've already listened to (or soon will), or to recommend me something new to listen to!
Apologies in perpetuity for my many typos (FUAC) and poor memory.
