This review is from: Doctor Who: Ghost Light (Classic Novels) (Audio CD)
This hugely-underrated serial from the tail-end of the original series' run is a creepy mystery set in a Victorian mansion full of zombie maids, primitive creatures and extremely dark secrets. The Seventh Doctor and Ace were never so well-drawn as they are here, whilst Ian Hogg's subtle narration gives the audio adventure the gravitas and atmosphere it needs. Writer Marc Platt adds a decent stretch of detail to the opening in the form of an extended prologue, explaining exactly how Ace came to be involved with Gabriel Chase (the house) in the first place, and we get a little more background on the enigmatic Josiah Smith as well.
Great tale, superb reading, effective sound effects and that iconic Target cover; sweet.
