However, there have been no editions of the poem since the middle of the nineteenth century.

Christopher Buchanan
A creepy tale with a very, very contrived and unbelievable plot and a villain with little more motive than, 'He really just wants to do evil stuff'. It does pull off the creepy and manage to be entertaining at times but it just doesn't work. More of a 2 1/2 than a three really.

The blurb given on GR is not for this story, which is a Big Finish 7th Dr, Ace, and Hex audio play.

This story is really creepy, although the timey wimey explanation as to why the device wouldn't affect the time line for long feels a bit gappy. Good use of atmosphere and suspense, and the ending with the rabbit is chilling.

I enjoyed this one. It was spooky and quite twisted. The plot was quite complicated and all the explanations didn't necessarily make sense but I still found it interesting and got quite thoroughly sucked into the story.

This is evidently meant to a be a creepy tale about a group of people with dark secrets holed up in an isolated house. At times it manages this, but on the whole, it doesn't quite work, and seems to rely just a bit too much on contrivance rather than plausible motivation. Not as good, perhaps, as it should have been.

Seven, Ace and Hex in a creepy time travel story. Somebody loses their eyes.
Scott Haworth
Before the 2005 version of Doctor Who took root in fan consciousness, fans would write Doctor Who stories like this, which were allowed to be disturbing, and more adult than child-friendly. There is a happy ending of sorts, but not for everyone. Overall, the story is more macabre than recent Who, reminiscent of the Who novels of previous years, which emphasized horror more than romance. The plot is time-oriented, but not in a humorous timey-wimey way. I question its internal logic, but I accept ...more

Very, very creepy. In the best possible way. And also timey wimey.
The dynamic between the Doctor and his two companions works well.
Never thought I'd enjoy for Seven to have an additional companion to Ace - and here you go!

O! How fun. Kinda grisly at a few points where I was loudly exclaiming "Oooohhhh!" because some parts are just so nasty. Iol // I need to look at the release date again, but this would be a great one for Halloween. :) And I'll have to confess, there's a creepy, wonderful "Silent Hill-like" (the games, not the movies) element that drew me to the story in the first place. Sound effects in this one are superb. Eeeew!

I am afraid I rather lost patience with Night Thoughts; there is so much that is crap about it. The central plot issue, Edie's death, simply made no sense at all: why kill her so ceremonially on the operating table, rather than slip her a poison pill? The Seventh Doctor's behaviour is utterly inconsistent. The bit with Ace and the bear traps is just stupid. The cast do well but the material is nigh unworkable.

The gathering of a group of academics in an isolated mansion is shattered by a troubling sequence of events: first, a terrible storm, then the arrival of three strangers, and then a gruesome murder.

The Doctor, Hex and Ace show up at a house on an island in the middle of a science experiment to undo what was done 10 years before.
