    Summary

    Alison Cheney’s been traveling with her robot and the Doctor for ten months. Despite a difficult start with two mind-fucks, she feels more confident than ever. She attributes a lot of that to the rule-bound relationship that she has negotiated with her robot, known to her as the Magister and to the Doctor as the Master. He’s teaching her how to be the master of her fate and the captain of her soul. She’s feeling pretty good…

    --Until she starts having nightmares in which she dies and then her robot saves her life by robotifying her. But it’s not a good robotification; she’s miserable, objectified, and out of control. Her fear seeps out of her nights and ruins her days.

    With the Magister and the Doctor’s assistance, Alison determines that she’s receiving distress signals from Bill Potts, a Black British woman like herself, who lives in an alternative universe. In this alternaverse, the Doctor is on their twelfth life, and Bill is their former companion. Trapped at the fast end of a space ship, Bill now works with the mysterious Razor to save herself and a city full of people from two of the cosmos’ deadliest foes: the Cybermen…and the Doctor. And Bill needs Alison’s help.

    Summary

    how things were between them when they hadn’t started to trust each other yet, and then a kind of breakthrough.

    i'm probably being over-cautious with "graphic depictions of violence" because it's more matter-of-fact than that, but the first chapter is kind of grim (see tags) in case you need to skip it. things get way better after that, though.
