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.
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.
Just this once, the Doctor's afraid.
