Cover blurb:
Tegan, the young air hostess who quite unintentionally became a member of the TARDIS's crew, wants to return to her own time, but when the Doctor tries to take her back to Heathrow Airport in the twentieth century the TARDIS lands instead on the outskirts of seventeenth-century London.

The Doctor and his companions receive a decidedly unfriendly welcome — but it soon becomes clear that the sinister activities of other visitors from time and space have made the villagers extremely suspicious of outsiders.

And as a result of the aliens' evil schemes, the Doctor finds himself on the point of playing a key role in a gruesome historical event...

Cover blurb:
'Call yourself a Time Lord?' Tegan shouted. 'A broken clock keeps better time than you!'

The Doctor tries to return Tegan to the Heathrow she left in 1981, but instead the TARDIS lands just outside London in 1666 — the year of the Great Plague. The Doctor and his companions receive a decidedly cool welcome — and it soon becomes clear that the sinister activities of other visitors from space and time have made the villagers extremely sensitive of outsiders.

And as a result of the aliens' evil schemes, the Doctor finds himself on the point of playing a key role in a gruesome historical event.

This is a novelization by Eric Saward of his own television story, first broadcast in 1982.
