Publisher's summary Edit

'Darwinian claptrap!'

One of the most densely complex stories in Doctor Who to this day, Ghost Light (1989) is a fast- paced production where every shot and every line has meaning, often more than one. As the last story produced in the original 26-year run, it is the true antecedent of the modern incarnation of the series, both in style and in its focus on the companion’s development.

Ghost Light is a bricolage of literary and cultural references that, in a story of alien experimentation hidden within the framework of a haunted house tale, explores issues of science, religion, class, race and more.

Jonathan Dennis has written for the Faction Paradox, Iris Wildthyme, Señor 105, and Bernice Summerfield ranges. His first novel was The Brakespeare Voyage, co-written with Simon Bucher- Jones.
