White Ghosts (#3.2)

Big Finish, Fourth Doctor Series

This story includes a technical skills challenge, a scary, threatening monsters challenge, and a moral ambiguity, hitting all of the crazy things a Dr. Who story can muster! Leela and the Doctor are halted in mid-flight by the Time Lords, presumably, while they watch a missile heading towards them. So they naturally project out the flight of the missile and go to the dark planet where it was heading, situated on the very edge of the universe in total darkness. And soon enough they find out that while things are dark, they aren’t necessarily lifeless. There are people studying things on the planet, killer plants on the planet, and other things that will arrive, especially after the missile arrives.

This story is so jam packed with people and plots that it’s quite difficult to describe without ruining the surprises that come along the way. This is truly a fantastic 4th Doctor story!
