Horror of Fang Rock (Fourth Doctor).

A good old fashioned horror story, shape-shifting monster and all. The confined lighthouse set worked to the episode's advantage. The guest cast also did well but I was waiting for both Lord Palmerdale and Adelaide to kick the bucket. I was surprised however that everybody except the Doctor and Leela was killed off. In the beginning I figured at least one would survive to tell the tale.
The Horror Of Fang Rock was based in part on the poem the Doctor quoted at the end of the story, The Ballard Of Flannan Isle. There were no survivors for whatever happened there too and no bodies for that matter.
