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...

Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

All of the Doctor Who book series are fun little treks into the Whoniverse, but I found this one to run closer to an actual episode while you're reading. The story is fairly solid and there's an awful lot of running involved. Definitely worth a read if you're missing Who during the off season!

It's an entertaining read. The Doctor is clever, the monsters are nicely creepy, and the original characters have *character,* which is very nice - even the children, I thought, were also realistically written, being neither mini-adults nor horribly obnoxious, as is sometimes prone to happen. The end, though a bit predictable, was fun to read.

Fans of Doctor Who will have already encountered each story element of this book from previous stories, both in the new series and in the old. That said, I like these things and haven't encountered them in a couple of years - so, it's all good.A plenitude of monsters, abandoned spooky places, nutters with driftwood collections (and guard ducks), and a culmination of events that could lead to the end of life on Earth as we know it.You can also make a drinking game out of it - taking a drink every time you read the word "cables", and make it a double each time you read "thick cables". Mike Tucker is a visual thinker, and it comes across with plenty of set dressing (the man loves him some cables).The dialog and characterization of The Doctor and Rose were well done, and welcome lite fare. Not too many surprises in here, a story built of cliches, but still a fun time that I am happy to have enjoyed.

This was an entertaining, light read by a man that apparently has a lot of history with the Doctor Who scene.It was a bit predictable, but fun to read, and I would like to get my hands on some more of these books, they're nice small hardbacks and would be great travel books to read in airports, on planes, etc.The story was about some aliens (obviously) that are trying to resurrect their "god" and give him a body formed of children's nightmares. The Doctor and Rose save the day, as usual. Like I said, a light read but fun. A stack of these would be great for plane trips.
