Publisher's summary[]

Jason Vane is England's suavest secret agent, and today he’s on his deadliest mission yet. Tracking down the evil Okulov... before he destroys the world.

The Doctor, Ann and K9 are, in contrast, finding their own mission a little hard to complete. A strange storm in the vortex has swept them back in time, back to Earth in 1978 and a strange place called 'Fever Island'.

A place where their worst nightmares are about to come true...

  • Vane is actually a supply teacher named Clive. He lives in a bedsit in Kentish Town.
    • Clive is a devoted reader of pulp spy fiction; hence, his fantastical alter-ego is a world-class secret agent, employed by the Whitehall wing of a secret British intelligence organisation known to those on the inside, half in jest, as the Crèche. The Commodore, their leader, reveals herself to be a double agent for the Germans.
  • In Clive's imagination, given form, Okulov's latest scheme involves infecting his own son with a new, faster-spreading strain of Bubonic plague.
