Publisher's Summary

Ian Hogg reads this thrilling novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure. Perivale, 1983. A column of smoke rises from the blazing ruins of a forgotten, decaying mansion. Perivale, 1883. In the sleepy village of Greenford Parva, Gabriel Chase is by far the most imposing edifice. The villagers shun the grim house, but the owner, the reclusive and controversial naturalist Josiah Samuel Smith, receives occasional visitors. The Reverend Ernest Matthews, for instance, Dean of Mortarhouse College, has travelled from Oxford to refute Smith’s blasphemous theories of evolution. And in a deserted room upstairs, the Doctor and Ace venture from the TARDIS to explore the decaying mansion... Who - or what - is Josiah Smith? What terrible secret does his house conceal? And why does Ace find everything so frighteningly familiar? Ian Hogg, who played Josiah Smith in the original Doctor Who TV serial, reads Marc Platt’s complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1990.

    "Great Doctor Who Story!"
    Would you listen to Doctor Who: Ghost Light again? Why?

    This is a great Doctor Who story from the final season. Listening to the Audible.com version threw some light on facets of the story not revealed in the broadcast episode. The reader was pleasant to listen to and brought to life the characters of Ace and The Doctor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this story, Ace is my favorite character. She is the pivot of this story, which involves The Doctor's grand scheme as regards her.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Most of the time, thought the reader was a bit laconic at times, I though.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you want to see the Light, Control holds the key.

    Story
    "Brings the book to life"
    If you could sum up Doctor Who: Ghost Light in three words, what would they be?

    Dark yet Light


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Doctor. The story is famously confusing but having read it a couple of times I 'got' it in the end. The Doctor in this story is quite aloof and isn't the homely character he was on TV. This is the closest the TV persona got to the subsequent characterisation in the Virgin novelisations.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ian Hogg?

    No, to begin with I found his voice didn't suit the story, he came into his own as it went on but I wouldn't go out of my way to find a book narrated by him.


    Any additional comments?

    A good story that works better on the page (or in the ear) than the tv version
