I Was Churchill's Double was the third story in The Churchill Years: Volume Two.
Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
Alexandra Palace, 1942. Strange television signals show a paranoid Churchill urging on the resistance in German-occupied Britain. A man in a battered leather jacket makes a guest appearance. The broadcasts come from another world, one where the country is now part of the Kaiser’s Empire. Of course, the Doctor is involved, and while Churchill claims to understand the notion of 'alternative histories', he never expected to be part of one.
