Ghost Light Audiobook

Doctor Who - Ghost LightOne of this year’s top Doctor Who audiobook releases is Ghost Light, a reading of the popular (if slightly baffling) 1989 serial by Marc Platt.

Step inside a gloomy, decrepit mansion and unravel the mysterious connections between an unexplained fire, a 19th century naturalist with blasphemous theories and a disquieting feeling that this all is very familiar in Doctor Who: Ghost Light.

In the audiobook adaptation of the novelisation of the TV serial (phew!) the Seventh Doctor and Ace find themselves inside Gabriel Chase, Victorian home that a thirteen year-old Ace once burnt to the ground, presided over by Josiah Samuel Smith, a Neanderthal man-servant named Nimrod and a mysterious stone space craft hidden in the basement.

The Audiobook, read by Ian Hogg who played the naturalist Josiah Smith in the original serial, is out now. You can purchase from the AudioGo website or from Amazon for £13.25 on CD!

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

One Response to Ghost Light Audiobook

    The Whole range has been superb and hopefully some of the missing culrpits will turn up next year (we know the Twin Dilemma and Earthshock are up in Jan and Feb 2012)

    Ghostlight is a triumph, mainly due to the book telling the WHOLE story and the reader Iain Hogg doing an even better range of Performance than he did originaly.

    My only Complaint of the range so far is. the left wing decision to sue Rula lenska for Happiness patrol and the useless version of Stone of Blood that went to all the trouble to be re-written by original writer but turned out not that differnt for the Terrance Dicks Version, so seemed a waste of time, as it wanst a Classic Novel
