Doctor Who: The Nightmare of Black Island




The Doctor and Rose discover an alien plot to resurrect an ancient evil...

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 childrens nightmares get worse, The Doctor and Rose discover an alien plot to resurrect an ancient evil... Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by David Tennant and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.
