It's 2012. And, with natural and man-made disasters striking all over the world, it seems that only the Hand of Peace organisation has all of the answers. But is there such a thing as a quick fix? Edward Bradley is, once again, working undercover. This time with UNIT. Meanwhile, the Doctor is on a quest of his own - to find an old friend...


  • This is the first appearance of UNIT in a Planet Skaro audio. Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart is also referenced.
  • Edward Bradley states that he knows 'the 21st century is when everything changes', a reference to 'Torchwood'.

Production Notes[]

  • This was one of three story ideas that Jon Masters submitted, and was the one that got the most favourable response from the production team.
  • Jon's script was initially underrunning quite heavily. So, as well as script editing it, Simon Hart ended up writing some new material in order to bring it up to the correct length. The Doctor/Ed confrontation in episode 2 was his main contribution.
