The TARDIS is pulled aboard the starship Patriarch; the Doctor, Millie and Travis find themselves in orbit above the planet Epsilon IX. But something dangerous lurks on the planet below…
- This story is set in the year 2533, 7 years after the end of one of the Cyber-Wars.
- This story follows on directly from the end of The Edge of Discovery, with the TARDIS being pulled into the Patriarch's tractor beam.
- Laser glass, a piece of technology first seen in The Cost of Progress, is in use on the Patriarch.
- During play, Melinda-Catherine Gross realizes that Millie has left her aviation jacket back at the museum. (The Cost of Progress)
- The doors are described as "shuck-shucking" open, similar to Nardole's preferred door sound as mentioned in the Twelfth Doctor episodes "Oxygen" and "The Lie of the Land".
- The Patriarch's Chief Engineer, Galen, is secretly a Zygon. Zygons have lived on Earth since the early 21st century (The Day of the Doctor, The Zygon Invasion, The Zygon Inversion)
- The unknown observer from the end of The Cost of Progress reappears, this time disguised as a Patriarch crewman. His TARDIS was seemingly disguised as a cargo container.
