Episode Notes

This month, our journey through classic Doctor Who reaches a culmination point, as we drop in on the original series’ excellent final creative push, with the run of Sylvester McCoy’s wonderful Seventh Doctor and his delightfully loony antepenultimate story “Ghost Light.” One of the strangest, densest, and most compelling Doctor Who stories ever told, “Ghost Light” sees every member of the creative staff going down swinging in the last season of the original run, particularly showcasing McCoy’s very unique take on the character and Sophie Aldred’s all-time great companion Ace. This is an overlooked classic, and a great way to complete our 8-month-long journey through the show’s original 26-year run.
