Nick and Rob are taking the oppotunity in a quiet moment between their adventures to explore the TARDIS. Deep in the maze of corridors they find a dusty old wooden control room, the perfect venue for a little surprise they have planned for the Doctor.

Will they be able to pluck Simon and Garfunkel out of their time stream and pop them down in the TARDIS? How will the Doctor's running repairs to his beloved ship affect their plans? What's wrong with the Cloister Room? And who is having the perfect cuppa?

Rob and Nick grapple with a little time problem, but just what have they brought to the TARDIS?
