A deserted city, an automated underground system and a malevolent formless entity. The Doctor and Greg materialize to get their bearings, but get a shock instead. As Greg dodges an aerial bomb attack, the Doctor has been enrolled in the Conglomerate School of Promising Executives. As the chairman always says, what's happiness and contentment, or law, when there is money to be had?

This story sets up the first element of AV continuity: the company known as Conglomerate. This play was adapted by the BBC Film Club for their 'Stranger' video In Memory Alone.

Production Notes[]

This story is the unbelievably modest beginning of an epic saga in the Audio Visuals Universe. Originally titled Dark City, 'Conglomerate' was considered as a filler story, possibly for inclusion on the end of the Cloud of Fear tape. However, as is so often the case with these plays, Conglomerate overran, and won its own release.
