'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.
