Cd Info.
1xCD of a 2 episode story, Running time 60 minutes approx, Trailer, Behind the scenes interviews.

1)Virginia Hey appeared in action classic Mad Max 2 alongside Mel Gibson, Hey played the character Warrior woman.
2)Virginia Heys other credits include, The 1987 James Bond film The Living Daylights & sci-fi series Farscape.


The Tardis narrowly avoids a collision with a stray missile & materialise on a darkened planet were there is light once every 1,000 year's.

Yet what happens on the planet in those rare hour's of daylight?

A survey team lead by Senior Tutor Bengel has been stationed here to study just that but soon The Doctor, Leela, Bengel & her survey team will soon discover that when daylight approaches ferocious plant's will arise & there pale blossoms called the White Ghosts will feed on the flesh of human's rather than photosynthesis, Yet something even more sinister is happening on this planet unknown to the Doctor.

On this planet darkness could be your only alley.

Don't be afraid of the darkness Doctor be more afraid of what's in the light!

Timelord Thoughts.

This is the second story in the third series of Fourth Doctor adventures & this series seems to have a more Gothic horror tone of the Hinchcliffe era than the previous two series.

Tom Baker is always on good form & really is bringing out great performances on these audios & while humourous at times seems to be channelling his performance of his first three tv season's that's bringing out the best in his Doctor's characteristics.

The Tardis arrives on a planetoid submerged in darkness; a world that sunlight hardly touches. A missile is heading towards this planet and the Doctor and Leela set out to warn any inhabitants. But the missile is not what it seems and nor are the inhabitants.
The story, with its atmospheric darkness where sound becomes much more relevant, lends it wonderfully to audio. There is a lot of eeriness and tension. The lack of vision and air successfully sell the idea of a planet bathed in continual darkness. It also allows for Leela’s hunter nature to come into play in a well written sequence where she battles her enemies in utter darkness relying on sound and her warrior’s instincts.

Despite the tense atmosphere this audio inserts a continual stream of humorous lines. Many come from Leela’s misconceptions from learning to read from children’s stories. These can be quite entertaining and serve to lighten the tension without breaking it. It is a difficult path to tread but the author has used humour to superb effect.

There are effectively three different species/creatures within the story. All are well thought out and possess some uniqueness. They are quite different from each other but seem to be slipping into an eco-system where they co-exist and benefit each other. The play manages to use plant based antagonists where are very different and distinct from Krynoids.

This is another story where the emphasis is very much on Leela’s continual education. It is clear that after the events of ‘The King of Sontar’ the Doctor and Leela have been somewhat estranged within the Tardis. This is soon pushed aside and their relationship re-established but the ethics and philosophies of their disagreement continue to surface throughout the story, especially in its closing stages.

A new Doctor Who audio story. Featuring Tom Baker as the Doctor and Louise Jameson as his companion Leela.

This is the second in the current run of releases to feature the duo. These stories usually stand pretty much alone, and casual listeners should be able to get into this one without any difficulty. Although events from the end of the previous release The King of Sontar (Dr Who Big Finish) are mentioned at the beginning and may not be forgotten about just yet. So it won't hurt you too much if you haven't heard that, but you might be a little better off if you have.

This story runs for two parts, of twenty five and twenty eight minutes in length [approx.] and is complete on a single cd.

Amongst the guest cast is Virginia Hey, well known to science fiction fans via the tv show Farscape.

The story sees the TARDIS forced by a close encounter with a missile into landing on a very strange world. A planet where darkness reigns. Except for one day every thousand years, when daylight finally shows.

A survey team are also there to see what will happen on this special day. But when daylight comes, they and the TARDIS crew face a battle to survive. Because strange things are about to appear...

It's interesting to have a story in this range that does mention the one that came before. This allows for some excellent character moments early on with the Doctor and Leela, in a superb TARDIS scene. Which also has one great self knowing moment that should make you chuckle. The themes of these early moments will seemingly not be forgotten. Which is a nice approach to the characters.

The story on the planet is equally appealing.
