Publisher's Summary

Gallifrey is in a state of crisis, facing destruction at the hands of an overwhelming enemy. And the Doctor is involved in three different incarnations - each caught up in a deadly adventure, scattered across time and space. The web of time is threatened - and someone wants the Doctor dead.

The three incarnations of the Doctor must join together to set time back on the right track - but in doing so, will they unleash a still greater threat?



  • The Knights of Velyshaa appear.
  • The Temperon is a legendary time beast.
  • The Laws of Time (supposedly) stop the Doctor's incarnations from meeting.
  • The Kurgon Wonder was created as a result of the Knights of Velyshaa attempting to capture the Temperon.
