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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
