Publisher's summary Edit

"There's always death on the rock when the Beast's about."

Fang Rock has always had a bad reputation. Since 1955 the lighthouse has been out of commission, shut down because of fire that gutted the entire tower. But now, finally updated and fully renovated, the island and lighthouse is once again about to be brought back into service.

Students have gathered on Fang Rock to celebrate the opening of the "most haunted lighthouse of the British Isles", but they get more than they bargained for when the ghosts of long-dead men return, accompanied by a falling star.

Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart is brought in to investigate what he believes to be signs of alien involvement. But it is not only Lethbridge-Stewart who has an interest in Fang Rock. Anne Travers is called to her family solicitor's, who have in their possession a letter from Archibald Goff, the paranormal investigator who once visited Fang Rock back in the 1820s, and along with it a piece of alien technology.

What connects a shooting star, ghosts of men killed in 1902 and the beast that roamed Fang Rock in 1823? Lethbridge-Stewart and Anne Travers are about to discover the answer first hand...

Notes Edit

  • This book contains a foreword by Louise Jameson and an afterword by Ralph Watson.
  • This book is a prequel and a sequel to the TV story Horror of Fang Rock, with a "based on" story credit for Terrance Dicks. There are many references to Horror of Fang Rock, including scenes that echo scenes from the first episode, as well as a chapter that leads directly into the first scene of episode one. The dead keeper from 1822, Davy Williams, is a reference to one of the character names in Terrance Dicks' original outline for Horror of Fang Rock.
  • There are several references to Doctor Omega, drawing parallels from Doctor Who's popularity in the 1960s, including Cyril Cusack playing Dr Omega and the mention of "Kelptonmania", an allusion to Dalekmania.
