Hulton College in Norfolk is a school dedicated to producing military officers. With the First World War about to start, the boys 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?
