Alison has had an uneven time with her robot ["the Magister" to her, "the Master" to the Doctor] and his inevitable spouse the Doctor. Yes, she met her robot and found in him a loyal partner and protector, but she also got mind-fucked twice by other aliens. She's sick of people barging into her head, and she needs to go home.
It's time for the Magister to leave too. As much as he loves the Doctor, he remains miserable at their control over him. If his choice to be with the Doctor is to mean anything, it must be fully informed and consensual. He must have the option to go.
The Doctor wants to give Alison a happy adventure for once, so they propose a farewell party for her and the Magister at the Floating Carnival, the universe's coolest fair. Since the inevitable spouses last went there before graduation from the academy, the place is charged with memories. The fact that it's currently run by the Stylist, an old frenemy of theirs, also complicates matters.
Let's just say that disentangling yourself from the Doctor is never easy.

Alison Cheney joined the Doctor aboard the TARDIS because she wanted to explore history and see new worlds. Her recent mind invasion by both the Shalka and a stone vampire has, however, taken its toll. She has been plagued by headaches, dizzy spells, and flashbacks. Once a barmaid skilled in dealing with all sorts of disruptive weirdos, she now avoids unpredictability and adventure by staying inside the ship.
A mission from the Time Lord Council to the planet Terripluvium challenges Alison's sense of safety. The Doctor must mediate between the Agricole and the Schuaschen, a species bred by the Agricole, who are now fighting for their independence. But the Doctor, incapacitated by allergies, lies unconscious in the Zero Room, recovering.
Alison has no interest in diplomacy, but her impulsive kindness to a Schuaschen puts her at the center of the conflict. Now completely out of her depth, she has only one person who can help her: the Doctor's robot, a sadistic master of mental manipulation, whom she cannot bring herself to address by name.
