Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

In the first part, you go across a strange planet in the distant future. In your efforts to track down the ever-elusive Doctor, you will encounter interstellar gypsies, lurking androids and, worst of all, King Varangar's mood body guards.

Using your intelligence, fluency and good looks you will need to think, talk and charm your way out of scores of mind-wrenching situations and collect the objects essential to completing the game.

In the second part, the TARDIS spirits you back in time to the Battle of Waterloo, where you will need all your wits to defeat both Napoleon and the malignant Warlord. Finally, pray for a quiet end to your Adventure...
