'THE DOCTOR IS A LEGEND WOVEN THROUGHOUT HISTORY.'
Hulton College in Norfolk is a school dedicated to producing military officers. With the First World War about to start, the boys of the school will soon be on the front line. But no one expects a war — not even Dr John Smith, the college's new house master...
The Doctor's friend Benny is enjoying her holiday in the same town. But then she meets a future version of the Doctor, and things start to get dangerous very quickly. With the Doctor she knows gone, and only a suffragette and an elderly rake for company, can Benny fight off a vicious alien attack? And will Dr Smith be able to save the day?
AN ADVENTURE SET IN BRITAIN ON THE EVE OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR, FEATURING THE SEVENTH DOCTOR AS PLAYED BY SYLVESTER MCCOY AND HIS COMPANION BERNICE SUMMERFIELD.
