David Troughton reads this thrilling story of mysterious half-made creatures and a terrifying god of destruction.

India in 1947 is a country in the grip of chaos, a country torn apart by internal strife. When the Doctor and Donna arrive in Calcutta, they are instantly swept up in violent events. Barely escaping with their lives, they discover that the city is rife with tales of  “half-made men,” who roam the streets at night and steal people away. These creatures, it is said, are as white as salt and have only shadows where their eyes should be. With help from India’s great spiritual leader, Mahatma Gandhi, the Doctor and Donna set out to investigate these rumors. What is the real truth behind the “half-made men?” Why is Gandhi’s role in history under threat? And has an ancient, all-powerful god of destruction really come back to wreak his vengeance upon the Earth?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mark Morris’ second contribution to BBC Books’ range of Doctor Who tie-ins is every bit as enjoyable as his last effort, if not more so…Besides telling a rip-roaring adventure, here Morris reflects brilliantly on some of the fundamental tenets of the Doctor’s character…When all’s said and done, Ghosts of India is a great read for a Doctor Who fan of any age.”

    " Never could get into this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A Rae Crownover | 2/16/2014

    " This was a great story. I loved all the comparison and the interactions between The Doctor and Ghandi. Usually with these books, the secondary story doesn't interest me as much, but not this one. I was with them every step of the way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 2/15/2014

    " Read with gusto by David Troughton. Abridged but I thought it was good as an abridegment. Interesting story using Gandi as one of the characters! "

    " Dove back into the New Series Doctor Who books this week, and managed to read two featuring the Doctor and Donna (who really gets shorted in the range, with 4 novels to every other companions' 12). Ghosts of India by Mark Morris brings the characters to 1947 India to meet Gandhi. As he showed in Forever Autumn, Morris has a knack for turning in books that read like the television episodes - slightly derivative but consistent. The regulars are a bit one-note for me - bitchy Donna and ADD Doctor - but he does a great Gandhi and brings in interesting friends and foes. The touching final scene is perhaps worth the price of admission. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 1/21/2014

    " A bit of an enjoyable mish-mash. Most of the characters are disposable comic-book versions of "Jewel in the Crown" British Raj cliches...but the underlying story is very readable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Leib | 1/18/2014

    " Very enjoyable addition to the Doctor Who universe. Moved well and felt like it would have made a good episode of the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shae | 11/11/2013

    " This one was not all that great. I didn't really care for the story, it was predictable, and it was kind of boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Husky Ovcharka Shiba-Inu | 9/14/2013

    " because any book with mahatma gandhi and the doctor is going to be good right "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CatBookMom | 8/14/2013

    " Well-written, with excellent attention to the mannerisms and banter of both Doctor Who Ten and Donna. The Doctor meets Gandhi, and I can just hear David Tennant speaking to him with great respect. Recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kiri | 7/3/2013

    " It was fine, as Doctor Who novels go, but I think I'm really done with them now. My infatuation has faded, and the novels don't offer enough for an adult reader. Ah well. Gotta say, though, that the dialogue is spot on for the characters. I could really hear David Tennant's voice in this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart Hughes | 6/30/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed Doctor Who: Ghosts Of India. I loved the characterisation of the Doctor and Donna, particularly the humour, not to mention Donna's conversations with Gandhi. I won't give any spoilers but the story is great and rattles along at a cracking pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 3/29/2013

    " Pretty typical for a doctor who episode, we read it thinking the india stuff would be fun, and it was. "

    " The setting & story were fairly interesting, but (as always) the Doctor and Donna's snappy banter really made it shine. I could do without any more references to the Ood, though. They had other adventures on the series. Really. "

    " This one could have made a great episode on telly...creepy, with a great setting and of course the comedy/friction of the Doctor/Donna relationship! "

    " Ok. No more Doctor Who novels for me for a while. These things are written in SUCH a juvenile manner. They leave me gasping for air in SHEER BOREDOM.

    Saving air of this novel? Ghandi. He was such a cute character. "
