Danger and discovery await the Doctor back aboard the alien ship, where a modified piece of Time Lord technology awaits his discovery. The Black Guardian is pleased with the Doctor's return and uses Turlough to awaken the ship's undead inhabitants to lead the Doctor to his death. The one uniting factor for all is the unforeseen presence of two Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewarts aboard ship, which could put a sudden end to everyone's plans if they're not kept apart. Written by
