On the run from an unknown enemy, the Doctor travels to a museum in Earth’s future where she meets Travis, Millie, and a social media influencer who’s about to ruin everyone’s day.
- The TARDIS randomiser is reintroduced, having been a key fixture of the Fourth Doctor's era.
- Amelia Earhart is introduced as a companion. The Thirteenth Doctor once alluded to an adventure with Earhart - whether this will be addressed in The Game of Rassilon is as yet unknown.
Unlike most audio productions, which are pre-scripted and recorded with voice actors, The Game of Rassilon plays out as a tabletop roleplaying game. The writers plot out the campaign, but the players' decisions influence the narrative.
