Note:  A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in November 2016 to allow Australia/NZ readers to order the book with much cheaper postage costs. It is identical to the original version, except for having a glossy cover instead of the original’s matt cover.

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.
