Bleak House

Bleak House was a novel by Charles Dickens. It was one of Edmund Trevithick's favourites; he loved the way Dickens "drew him into that murky, fog-bound world." (PROSE: Nightshade) In the course of the plot, one of the characters — aptly named "Krook" — spontaneously combusted in his room, "supposedly as a celestial judgement on his sins." (PROSE: All-Consuming Fire)

On Christmas Eve 1869, the Ninth Doctor compared the morgue of Gabriel Sneed's mortuary to the setting of the novel. (TV: The Unquiet Dead)

Ace found a copy of Bleak House in the TARDIS library. The Seventh Doctor advised her to put it in the architecture section. (AUDIO: The Genocide Machine)

In 2018 the Tenth Doctor and Heather McCrimmon saw Bleak House as a song and dance spectacular on Broadway, New York City. Wayne Rooney performed in the musical. The Doctor didn't expect much of it, but after seeing the show he thought it was brilliant. (COMIC: The Greed of the Gavulav)
