The Cosmic Plot of Doctor Hu was the first story of Season 28 in The Doctor Who Project series. It was written by Misha Lauenstein, released 1999, and featured the TDWP 8th Doctor, and Tamara Scott.



Tamara Scott has been invited to a party - a strange party - by a man she's never met. He promises a weekend of fun, games and food. It seems like a good idea at the time, but Tamara soon comes to realize that the party's benefactor, the mysterious Dr. Hu, may have some secrets that he wants to keep hidden.
