Cover blurb:
‘Yes, I always find trouble.’

An isolated Edwardian lighthouse, mysterious deaths, an unexpected shipwreck, a body-snatching alien: Horror of Fang Rock (1977) distils Doctor Who’s vein of Gothic horror, setting the Doctor in a locale that mirrors and amplifies his duality. The story intersects with the lore of the lighthouse as historical icon, as technological compendium, and as literary allegory, to probe the limits of knowledge, the artifice of class and the dangers of narrative.

Matthew Guerrieri is a musician and the author of The First Four Notes: Beethoven’s Fifth and the Human Imagination.

Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

“A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Doctor Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
