Story[]

The Doctor regenerates and meets James Mason...

Synopsis[]

James wakes up, and, while going to work for UNIT, witnesses the eleventh regeneration of The Doctor. He helps the Doctor to recover but the regeneration is unstable, and the Doctor sends himself and James to the distant world of Kaaq through his mysterious TARDIS. They meet Ben, and the horrible natives of the planet, the Haemovors. Eventually they manage to escape the planet and the Doctor and James decide to travel the Universe in the Doctor's new TARDIS.
