On 9 November 1923, the Seventh Doctor and Ace arrived in Munich just as the Beer Hall Putsch concluded. Adolf Hitler and his followers had been driven away from the War Office by soldiers.

Hastily explaining his actions were necessary to ensure that Earth history ran its proper course, the Doctor ushered Ace back to the TARDIS, where they were fired upon with an energy weapon, a sign that a non-contemporaneous person had been manipulating the past.
