Publisher's Summary

Louise Jameson reads this classic Fourth Doctor novelisation, based on the 1977 TV serial starring Tom Baker.

On a remote rocky island a few miles off the Channel coast stands Fang Rock lighthouse. There have always been tales of the beast of Fang Rock, but when the TARDIS lands here with Leela and the Doctor, the force they must deal with is more sinister and deadly than the mythical beast of the past. It is the early 1900s, electricity is just coming into common usage, and the formless, gelatinous mass from the future must use the lighthouse generators to recharge its system. Nothing can stop the Rutan scout in its search and its experimentation on humans.... Duration: 4 hours approx.

Weak story

Weak story but enjoyable performance and sound effects. Totally within the style of the 70s show.

well done Terrance and Louise

louise Jameson is a fantastic narrator and is particularly good in this. I always thought that this story was one of Tom's best, but missed the original transmission. Because of this the book was my first, and for many years my only experience of the story. When I finally got the opportunity to the see it on BSB, I was impressed by the clostrphobic atmosphere and the great performance of the cast. For me it stands with talons, robots, and genesis at the top of the list of the fourth doctors stories.

Another solid adaptation

Sit back and enjoy another classic Dr Who novel expertly read by Louise Jameson who of course played Leela in the original TV adaptation. Great sound effects really make this a very enjoyable few hours.
