As with all fifth Doctor/Nyssa stories, this one broadly occurs between [[DW]]: ''[[Time-Flight]]'' and ''[[Arc of Infinity]]''. More specific placement is fairly arbitrary. Following the internal logic of the naming conventions of the stories on ''[[Circular Time]]'', however, it must be relatively early in the Doctor's solo travels with Nyssa. Thus, a placement soon after [[DW]]: ''[[Time-Flight]]'' seems reasonable. Some have suggested that placement after [[BFA]]: ''[[The Game]]'' makes sense, as well.
