Story[]

Synopsis[]

Can a play really threaten history, as we know it? The Doctor certainly thinks so and a chance discovery in London's West End send him and Silver across time and space in a quest to preserve the timeline.  In Jacobean England, Silver meets Shakespeare and faces a fate worse than death and in Ancient Rome; the Doctor becomes embroiled in a conspiracy to assassinate the Emperor Caligula that may cost the Time Lord his head. Finally, in the twenty-sixth century, the true villain is revealed and the Doctor must risk everything in one last, desperate gamble. But, separated from Silver by over two thousand years, has the Doctor's luck finally run out?  Will the Doctor escape the rack? Will Silver be fed to the lions? And, as the great Library of Alexandria burns, will causality itself be a victim of the flames?

Continuity[]

  • The Doctor's recent regeneration is alluded to, with Silver having yet to fully trust this new incarnation.
