Format: Audio CD
Initially pretty unloved by Doctor Who fandom, Horror of Fang Rock is one of those stories whose reputation has grown over the last few decades. Now, it's viewed as one of Tom Baker's very best.

And if there's one thing that author Terrance Dicks, a veteran of the series, understood, it's that Doctor Who is the Doctor's show. This means that the story is a wonderful showcase for Tom Baker, who dominates every scene he's in and gets some great lines.

With only a few sets and a small cast, Horror of Fang Rock is an ideal candidate for an audio release. Louise Jameson provides descriptive links for visual scenes and she also gives an interesting interview. Script PDF's are a nice bonus as well.

A spooky classic that works well in the audio format.

I remember thoroughly enjoying this story when it first aired on NZ tv, who knows how many years ago now. The characters of the Fourth Doctor and Leela really have a good rapport; there is wit, tension and lots of good old-fashioned running around chasing monsters.

The Doctor and Leela are on their way to Brighton, but unfortunately end up on Fang Rock, a barren island with only a lighthouse and three lighthouse-keepers. Along the way, an aristocrat's yacht is washed ashore on the rocks, and the remaining passengers and one crewman are added to the small number of people stranded on the island. But is there something or someone else on the island with them all? And what could it possibly be doing there?

The characters of the lighthouse-keepers are well played in this story, and the aristocrat, his military companion and secretary, as well as his man Harker are also integral characters in the story. The Doctor and Leela find themselves having to fight prejudice and superstition, as well as greed, ambition and the unknown assailant in this desperate fight to survive.

Great stuff.

I've waited 3years since the last soundtrack release,but it's been worth the wait as now Audio Go are now treating us to four in a row! first of is Horror of fang rock, in my opinion one of the last greats of the classic series. Listening on CD is a much more interesting experience and it's amazing how different it feels. Tom Bakers voice is perfect and the linking narration is great and really adds to the atmosphere. These CDs are great for listening to in the car or if like me you have a hectic life it,s great to be able to hear a REAL doctor who story from the classic era, without having to put a DVD on.
can't wait for the other releases in this range, lets hope Audio Go bring out some more titles in the 50th anniversary year.
