Publisher's Summary

In the American Midwestern town of Lychburg, something is afoot. Its citizens are being killed in inexpressibly horrible and brutal ways and the police don't have a clue who's responsible. The only suspects are a mysterious and sinister stranger, who calls himself the Doctor, and his young companions Jamie and Victoria.

The Fourth Doctor and Romana, meanwhile, have been summoned by the Gallifreyan High Council. A force has been unleashed into the space/time continuum... a force so unimaginably terrible that it is set to rip the universe itself apart and plunge it into primal, screaming chaos from which nothing will survive.

Of course, since something of this nature happens every other day of the week, the Doctor's really far more interested in finding out what's happened to a close personal friend, who seems to have vanished under mysterious circumstances. And quite right, too. The fate of a universe plunging into fetid and unending chaos can look out for itself for a change...


  • Second Doctor
    • Has small, neat handwriting.
    • Can play the recorder while hanging upside down.
    • Cannot remember if you should see a body in a morgue on an empty stomach or a a full one.
  • Jamie McCrimmon
  • Can now write in English although it's broken and spelt phonetically.
  • Meets Romana I.
  • Knows enough things about the esoteric fields UNIT and the Doctor move in, as well as more mundane military matters to make him a prime target for enemy agents.
  • John Benton
    • Was exposed to something during his career in UNIT that enables him to hold off the effects of an anaesthetic dart for a short time.


  • The Daleks upon hearing rumours of Collectors present in near their system pretended that their planet had been destroyed.


  • Many of the characters are direct copies of The Simpson's characters in this novel, (not The Doctor or any of his companions, of course). However Dr Nick (Dr Rick), Dr Hibert, comic book guy among others all make noticeable appearances to the Second doctor.
