Cover blurb:
'Darwinian claptrap!'

The last story produced in Doctor Who's original 26-year-run, Ghost Light (1989) remains one of the most densely complex — a true antecedent of the modern series in its style, pace and focus. Every shot and line has meaning, often more than one. A bricolage of literary and cultural references, a story of alien experimentation set in a haunted house, Ghost Light explores issues of science, religion, class, race and more.

Jonathan Dennis has written for Faction Paradox, Iris Wildthyme, Señor 105, and Bernice Summerfield.
