As sinister white robots hunt his friends Jamie and Zoe through the void, the Doctor discovers that there is danger even where there is nothing at all. What is the Forest of Words? Why is Lemuel Gulliver wandering about? Where has Jamie's face gone? The Doctor must answer these questions and more if he doesn't want to become a work of fiction ...
