Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One.

Someone has assassinated the Doctor.

And he only has one hundred days to find out who did it.


to be added



  • Reference is made to the Bertolt Brecht play 'Mother Courage and Her Children.'

The Doctor[]

  • Upon observing them, Evelyn describes the Fifth Doctor, the Seventh Doctor and the Eighth Doctor as being "lovely", seeming like "a rather jolly man" and "charming" respectively.
  • The Doctor dislikes Braxiatel, whom he describes as being condescending, but does not doubt his trustworthiness.
  • The Sixth Doctor admits that being his fifth incarnation was "like a holiday. A very wonderful holiday."



Illustrated preview by Martin Geraghty from DWM 387.

  • Although the Doctor sees Charley Pollard in the company of his future self in this story, he fails to recognise her upon meeting her formally in The Condemned, which occurs later in his personal timeline.
  • A comic preview by Martin Geraghty for this story was published in DWM #387.
  • The Doctor and Evelyn make self-aware allusions and almost fourth-wall breaks frequently throughout the duration. This is most obvious in a sequence where the Doctor is talking about there potentially being an audience for his adventures.
  • After observing C'rizz, the Doctor comments that he has never had a non-humanoid companion by the time of his sixth incarnation in spite of the fact that he travelled with both K9 Mark I and K9 Mark II in his fourth incarnation and Frobisher earlier in his sixth incarnation for several years each as well as Kamelion more briefly in his fifth incarnation. He did, however, concede during this story that the virus was damaging his memory.
  • This story is set between The Trial of a Time Lord and Time and the Rani.
