Escaping from a volcanic eruption on the planet Dulkis, the Doctor is forced to use the TARDIS' Emergency Unit, which takes the craft out of normal time and space... and out of reality itself! The time-travellers arrive in a mysterious world peopled by fictional characters — Gulliver and Rapunzel, D'Artagnan and Sir Lancelot — but also by creatures from mankind's worst imaginings...

Cover blurb:
The TARDIS is in the path of molten lava on the planet Dulkis, and the Doctor is forced to activate the emergency unit to move it out of harm's way.

Unfortunately, the craft is also taken out of normal time and space... and out of reality itself! When the time travellers land "nowhere", they stumble into a world peopled by fictional characters — Gulliver and Rapunzel, D'Artagnan and Sir Lancelot — but also by creatures from mankind's worst imaginings!
