Publisher's Summary

Fang Rock Lighthouse stands somewhere off the South Coast of England in the early 1900s. Its three keepers have lately noticed a strange fog, and one has seen an eerie light in the water. Soon one of them is dead, and Old Reuben believes that legend is about to become reality.
When the Doctor and Leela arrive, they become involved in a frightening fight for survival. A shipwreck brings four others in search of shelter, but nobody's safety can be guaranteed on Fang Rock that night. With the lighthouse under attack, one by one the humans are picked off. The Doctor needs all of his initiative and ingenuity if he and Leela are to survive.
Tom Baker stars as the Fourth Doctor in this thrilling full-cast TV soundtrack adventure from 1977, with linking narration by Louise Jameson. In a special bonus interview, she recalls her time as Leela in the BBC TV series.

Would you listen to Doctor Who: Horror of Fang Rock again? Why?

The soundtrack is sometimes better than the television. For example - the memory of the Rutan climbing the life house can only be improved with added imagination and several decades distance.

Which character – as performed by Louise Jameson (linking narration) and Tom Baker – was your favourite?

Who can better Tom Baker in his pomp as Dr Who?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The iconic theme tune still invokes shivers of anticipation and excitement whenever its heard.
