A chance meeting with a scientist named Prof. Rachel Jenson leads the Doctor and Ace to Totters Lane, an old junkyard which was once home to the Time Lord. The date is November 22nd, 1963, and British soldiers lead by Group Captain 'Chunky' Gilmore have cornered an extra-terrestrial inside the junkyard. The alien is revealed to be a lone Dalek. Once destroyed, it proves to be only the start of the Doctor's problems as the Dalek was a member of one of two warring factions, both searching to locate a legendary Gallifreyan artifact previously left behind by the wily Time Lord. Now the Doctor and Ace must work with military forces to prevent either side of the alien menace in achieving its goal. Written by
