Cover blurb:
The Doctor has promised Tegan that they will visit her grandfather in the English village of Little Hodcombe, in the year 1984, a precision of timing and location that the TARDIS has not always achieved...

When the Type-40 machine comes to rest, the view on the scanner screen only serves to confirm Tegan's rather low expectations of the TARDIS's performance.

The most sensible course of action would be to leave immediately — but despite Turlough's protests the Doctor rushes out to take on a seemingly hopeless rescue mission...

Cover blurb:
'Ww're in the wrong century,' wailed Tegan. 'No, we're not,' Turlough assured her grimly. 'It is 1984.'

The Doctor has promised Tegan that he will take her to her grandfather's village of Little Hodcombe. But all is not well in this little village — the whole population is involved in a war game that seems ever more sinister, and little Hodcombe itself is surrounded by an energy field. Something is very wrong indeed, and the Doctor, Turlough and Tegan take on what seems to be a hopeless rescue mission.
