I love the creepy ones....

I love Doctor Who in creepy mode. And on audio its hard to achieve roper creepy. This story by Alan Barnes achieves this perfectly. The only thing is that the story has a really short first part, and although it isn't a rushed story in any sense, one feels one would have liked just a tiny bit more length! But that said, the story is extremely well produced and directed. Tom Baker continues to be excellent as the unpredictable fourth Doctor we all know and love, and Louise Jameson's Leela seems to be getting ever more better stories to get her teeth into. Virginia Hey is superb in her role. This has all the brilliant cramped elements of tv stories like Horror of Fang Rock, with its tiny outpost of humanity set against a weird and nasty menace.....And yet again BFP have hit the mark with a story that's fast but intensely enjoyable.

Decent Far Edge of the Universe Story

"White Ghosts" has many elements that we know well from the long history of Doctor Who. Doctor 4 and Leela find themselves way way out where even the TARDIS has trouble navigating. There, a scientific station studying a strange planetoid is more than just a scientific study. There are shades of "Planet of Evil" here. Tied to the plot is an environmentalist message and an interesting way to revisit The Doctor's ethics. It doesn't break new ground, and does get dragged by a few bits of preposterousness, but overall "White Ghosts" is pretty entertaining.
