Publisher's Summary

On a lonely stretch of Welsh coastline, a fisherman is killed by a hideous creature from beneath the waves. When the Doctor and Rose arrive, they discover a village where the children are plagued by nightmares, and the nights are ruled by monsters. The villagers suspect that ancient industrialist Nathanial Morton is to blame, but the Doctor has suspicions of his own. Who are the ancient figures that sleep in the old priory? What are the monsters that prowl the woods after sunset? What is the light that glows in the disused lighthouse on Black Island? As the children's nightmares get worse, The Doctor and Rose discover an alien plot to resurrect an ancient evil.Featured are the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.


What the Critics Say

"Doctor Who: The Nightmare of Black Island tells of monsters brought to life by children¿s nightmares that are caused by broadcasts made by fiendisaliens with peel off faces (worse imagined than seen). I was horribly gripped by Anthony Head¿s narration and Mike Tucker¿s sound Effects." (The Times)

Great performance by Toni Head

Great Doctor Who story. Loved the performance by Toni Head who breathes wonderful life into the characters to lift them from the page.
The interview at the end shouldn't be missed either.
