The Ghosts of N-Space was the seventh novel in the Virgin Missing Adventures series. It was written by Barry Letts and featured the Third Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. This was the first of two novelisations to be published under the Virgin Missing Adventures brand (the second was Downtime). This is also the only novelisation in the Missing Adventures range based on an audio story: the original version of The Ghosts of N-Space was produced for radio by the BBC.

Publisher's summary Edit

"When the barrier gives way this planet will be flooded by all the evil in N-Space. And, at the moment, I have no idea how to stop it."

Sarah Jane Smith, on holiday with her chum Jeremy and a bad case of writer's block, is amazed to find the Brigadier in the same part of Italy. He is there to help a distant relative whose tiny island home has been threatened by American mobster Max Vilmio.

When the ghosts that haunt the island's crumbling castle are joined by less benign spectres, the Brigadier summons the Doctor — who discovers that the whole of mankind is threatened by the plans of the ruthless Vilmio and his mysterious, hooded henchman.

Notes Edit

  • This is the novelisation of The Ghosts of N-Space audio drama and the first novelisation to not be released under the Target Books banner. Instead, since Target Books had been retired by this time, it was released as part of the Virgin Missing Adventures line.
  • The book was published nearly a year before the radio play was actually broadcast, making it the first novelisation to have done so.
