    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

    saved this snippet but forgot to note whose idea it was (6_6)
    if you remember, please let me know!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    "Really, my dear Doctor... were they all out of normal cats? Or were you just naturally drawn to the one with the most brain abnormalities?"
    “Alison chose it. But it's a perfectly good animal, for a cat!”
    She didn't tell either of them that she'd chosen that particular melancholy creature because it reminded her of the Doctor.
