    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    The upside of a TARDIS is that it can go anywhere and any time you want. The down side is that it usually comes with Time Lords.

    No point in history is as difficult to navigate as the history between the Doctor and the Master. Alison doesn't try. She just does her best not to turn to dust.
