Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

House of Blue Fire was the one hundred and fifty-second story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Mark Morris and featured Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor and introduced Amy Pemberton as companion, Sally Morgan.

Publisher's summary[]

aquaphobia n. An abnormal fear of water, or drowning.

blattodephobia n. The morbid fear of cockroaches.

catoptrophobia n. Fear of mirrors, or seeing one's own reflection.

There's a whole ABC of horrors at Bluefire House — as four young people, drawn together to this tumbledown hotel at the edge of nowhere, are about to discover. But whatever the ancient and foul thing that has emerged from the wilderness to drag them here, speaking of it will only strengthen it.

The Doctor alone knows what lurks at the heart of Bluefire House. But the monster of his childhood dreams is coming. The Mi'en Kalarash is coming...

Just this once, the Doctor's afraid.
