Comic preview from DWM 338. Illustration by Mike Collins.

This Week: A hideous, misshapen creature releases a butterfly. Next Week: The consequences of this simple action ensure that history follows its predicted path...

Sometime: In the swirling maelstrom of the Time Vortex, The Council of Eight map out every moment in history and take drastic measures to ensure it follows their predictions. But there is one elemental force that defies their prediction, that fails to adhere to the laws of time and space... A rogue element that could destroy their plans merely by existing.

Already events are mapped out and defined. Already the pieces of the trap are in place. The Council of Eight know when Sabbath will betray them. They know when Fitz will survive the horrors in the Institute of Anthropology. They know when Trix will come to his aid. They know when the Doctor will finally realise the truth.

They know that this will be: Never.

  • It was "no secret" that Sabbath's allies were originally going to be the Daleks, but copyright issues stopped this from being the case. (DWM 341)
  • An agent of the Council of Eight released a butterfly in 1588. This eventually led to a storm being created which sank the Spanish Armada. Octan was killed by the agent accidentally just prior to letting the butterfly go.
