Examining the Doctor #91: Horror of Fang Rock Part One


It’s the month of Halloween, so Mark and Seth discuss a spooky classic, the Tom Baker story Horror of Fang Rock.

Horror of Fang Rock was the first story in Season 15 of Doctor Who. It was loosely inspired by a real-life incident from 1900 where three lighthouse workers mysteriously vanished from a lighthouse never to be seen or heard from again.

Seth also discusses “The Max Headroom Incident” where an unknown hacker pirated the signal of a PBS airing of the episode and broadcasted for a few minutes wearing a Max Headroom mask.
