Note: The Doctor Who connection in this drama comes from an appearance by the Rutans (or rather, one Rutan singular).
Mysterious death. Grieving mother. Government conspiracy.
Edinburgh hackette Nicola McLaren has heard it all before. Just a routine investigation into the whole heap of nothing that forms the humdrum grind of real life journalism. Right?
Before long people try to kill her, a lunatic ex-soldier abducts her and she finds herself chased half way across the country to meet aliens she's not even sure exist.
Oh, and then she has to save the world.
