Closest to New Who?
on August 30, 2012
Ghost Light is part of the final season of the original run of Doctor Who, and one that falls in the middle of the strongest run of stories in years.
A dark, old house with a mysterious past; strange creatures; an alien intelligence? How can the Doctor resist? Coupled with more character development for Ace (laying the framework for the New Who companions of the 21st century, this is a gripping tale.
The actors are all brilliant and the set is highly atmospheric - the contruction of a working lift on set really helps to sell the location. This one scared the living daylights out of me when I was young, and isn't that the hallmark of a really good Doctor Who story? The plot is nice and tight, being spread across only three episodes, so there's very little filler. Great stuff!
