The Scream of Ghosts was the second and final story in The Third Doctor Adventures: Volume Five. It was written by Guy Adams and featured Tim Treloar as the Third Doctor, Katy Manning as Jo Grant, Jon Culshaw as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and John Levene as Sergeant Benton.
When the Brigadier and Jo are called in to look into a breakthrough in the field of portable communication, the Doctor has to stay behind with communications problems of his own – a strange signal coming through the TARDIS console that's burned out its circuits.
