Publisher's Summary

When the planet Archetryx is threatened by a Dalek assault squad, the Doctor and Evelyn become embroiled in an ever-deepening mystery. What has become of President Romana, missing for twenty years? What lurks in the vast gravity wells of Archetryx? What is the secret of the ancient element the Daleks are synthesising -- and how does Gallifrey feature in their plans?

The Doctor finds that if his oldest enemies cannot conquer the universe they will watch it go up in flames...



to be added



  • It was established in NA: Happy Endings that Romana was president of the High Council.
  • This story goes some way to explain why the Eye of Harmony in the TARDIS in DW: Doctor Who required a human eye.
  • At one point, Evelyn worries that Romana has Stockholm Syndrome, however she initially believes it to be known as Stockbridge Syndrome.
  • Due to these events, Romana established the Temporal Powers, an alliance with multiple time-active factions. (BFG: Insurgency)
