When Harry Winter goes out collecting rocks to repair the wall around his father's farm, he makes a fatal mistake. He disturbs Lucifer's Tombstone, and awakens something demonic and dreadful....
The TARDIS arrives in the 18th-century village of Thornton Rising in the Yorkshire Moors - a village cut off from the world by an all-consuming darkness, where the sun has not risen for three weeks. Farm animals have been attacked, people have gone missing, and strange lights have been seen in the sky.
The Doctor soon becomes involved in a nightmarish adventure, helped by a young local woman named Charity. But who is feeding on the blood of the locals, and where will the carnage stop?
Written specially for audio by Scott Handcock, The Rising Night is read by Michelle Ryan, who played Christina in the TV episode 'Planet of the Dead'.

"Vampire alien trying to take over the world"
Unexpected, Brilliant, Zaney
The Narrator and the female vampire like monster who hypnotizes men to kill them and women to help her kill men and take over the world by building a new race to replace the ones that are now dead.
The female vampire monster
It kind of gave me the creeps, Michelle Ryan did a really good job with the creepy alien voice and as I listened to this on Halloween it was extra creepy.
This is a great short listen for those who love Doctor Who and David Tennant
"Less than interesting story"
Michelle Ryan reads it well but the story isn't as interesting as I had hoped. Not as gripping as some other Doctor Who stories on Audible.
