More About the Author

Marty Ross is a Scottish author and storyteller, best known for a long series of audio dramas, particularly for BBC radio. This has included Rough Magick, which introduced William Shakespeare to witchcraft in the Scottish highlands, A Hundred Miles, set in contemporary Russia, A Breath from Other Planets about the Austrian expressionist comoposer Arnold Schoenberg, and My Blue Piano about the expressionist poet Else Lasker Schuler. Horror and science fiction have been a strong element of his output, including the three plays of BBC Radio 4's The Darker Side Of The Border - The Captain of the Polestar, Olalla & The Brownie Of The Black Haggs, as well as the Celtic gothic of the serial Catch My Breath & the equally Celtic science fiction of Ghost Zone, another much-repeated serial.

He has also written two audio dramas for Big Finish's Doctor Who series: Night's Black Agents & the Lovecraftian The Lurkers At Sunlight's Edge. He has also written an audio drama for Big Finish's Dark Shadows series: Dress Me In Dark Dreams. For the Wireless Theatre Company, he has had produced his surreal tragi-comedy Medusa On The Beach, effectively a Greek tragedy set in a modern English seaside town. For 3DHorrorFi, he wrote Blood And Stone, based around the legend of Hungarian 'Countess Dracula' Elizabeth Bathory. This was nominated for a 2012 Rondo Award. His stage plays have been performed in Liverpool, London, Nottingham & his native Glasgow.

His novel Aztec Love Song, a thriller set in the Glasgow suburb of Newton Mearns, where he grew up, was published by Weathervane Press in 2009. Glasgow, Like A Stranger set in the urban south-side of Glasgow, a crucial landscape in his work, is also available, as is his most ambitious novel, the recent Dances Sacred & Profane: A Gothic Romance, which combines his love for the gothic horror genre at its most poetic and romantic with his experiences working as a guide in Austria.

Ross frequently performs as a live, 'stand-up' storyteller at venues ranging from pubs & libraries to Scottish hillsides and the 'Devil's Pulpit' in the German Harz mountains. Most recently he performed his show One Man Halloween at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden as part of the London Horror Festival. In December 2012, he will be performing his Christmas show Ghosts Of Christmas Past at the Chilwell Arts Theatre, Nottingham.

Among his chief influences, he would cite the gothic tradition in literature, especially Poe, Le Fanu, Blackwood, Hoffmann, Robert Aickman, Tanith Lee & Angela Carter. In the thriller field, favourites are Cornell Woolrich & James Ellroy, although he was introduced to the 'noir' aesthetic by Batman comics of the 1970s. His favourite contemporary author, by a country mile, is Joyce Carol Oates. The films of Polanski, Bergman, Herzog, Val Lewton, Ken Russell, Svankmajer, Borowczyk, British studio Hammer & the German expressionists are also major influences, as are the music of Shostakovich, Mahler, Schoenberg, Bartok, Debussy (from which Dances Sacred & Profane takes its title), Henze, Takemitsu, Kaija Saariaho & Alfred Schnittke. Surrealism & expressionism are also key influences.

By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In 1934, the Tardis lands on an island off the coast of Alaska, that wasn't there until four years ago. Obviously, this is of interest to the Doctor, so the Tardis crew bundle up in their woollies and trundle off over the snow and ice to find out what's so odd about this island. They come across a man who seems rather crazed by whatever has happened to him, and when the Doctor, Hex and Ace try to help him they find themselves in the middle of an expedition led by the ruthless Emerson Whytecrag III. When the Doctor and his companions become separated, they find themselves on different parts of the island and in very different circumstances.

I really enjoyed this story; the character of C P Doveday is tremendous, and wonderfully realised by the talented Michael Brandon. The nod to H P Lovecraft is evident from the beginning, totally in keeping with the whole story, and very sympathetically done. The twists and turns in this story are really superb, and the characters are very well drawn. Whytecrag, Corbin and Doveday in particular are very well characterised and played, and the Tardis crew play their own parts very well.

Overall, I think this is a real keeper of a seventh Doctor story and one that you would listen to often. There are nuances and depths in the story and in the characters that make it a modern classic; totally recommended.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the hundred and forty first release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven, Sophie Aldred as Ace and Philip Olivier as Hex. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with cliffhangers and original theme music between each. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the second disc and a few minutes of the soundtrack at the end of disc 1.

Following the big, complex and angsty adventures of `Project: Destiny' and `Death in the Family', this is a return to the traditional Who story, and none the worse for it. The Doctor, Ace and Hex land the TARDIS somewhere close to Alaska, and are soon running around on the ice dealing with some very strange puzzles, the inmates of a local lunatic asylum, lots of men with guns, and CP Doveday, pulp horror writer and possibly the most dangerous man on the planet. Oh, and strange mists, networks of caves and the most unusual of sacred texts.

It's inventive, it's fun, it hits all the right notes for a story about as traditionally Who as you can get. It's a pleasure to listen to. Especially for the homage to Lovecraft (though at times it seems to be taking elements from L Ron Hubbard and the founding principles of the cult of scientology). McCoy, Aldred and Olivier clearly enjoy this after all the hard work and deep and meaningful stuff of the previous releases. It's a good, solid, old fashioned story and a great listen. A great way to round off this excellent trilogy, 5 stars.
