Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

The Sixth Doctor is no stranger to courtroom drama, but faces a very different challenge when he prepares to defend a most unusual Judoon.

After an environmental clearance mission goes wrong, Captain Kybo of the Nineteenth Judoon Interplanetary Force is stranded in Victorian England, bound in chains, an exhibit in a circus show. But he has allies: Eliza Jenkins — known to audiences as "Thomasina Thumb" — and the larger-than-life "clown" in the colourful coat.

Uncovering a trail of injustice and corruption, the Doctor and Kybo soon find themselves on trial for their lives...

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Doctor says, "I am not an animal, I am a Time Lord!" This is a reference to the line, "I am not an animal! I am a human being!" from The Elephant Man starring John Hurt as the title character John Merrick.
  • The Doctor plans to visit Samuel Taylor Coleridge in Porlock. The Person from Porlock was an unwelcome visitor to Coleridge's home in 1797 who interrupted him while he was composing his poem Kubla Khan, which came to him in a dream. The interruption caused him to forget the remaining lines and the poem was never completed.
