Publisher's summary Edit

The TARDIS arrives in a gleaming utopia in the Space Year 2003. Has the Doctor truly brought Ian and Barbara home, to glimpse their future?

The world owes much to its legendary Inventor, and Susan finds herself face to face with the great benefactor. But soon, the time travellers are in a world at war and the Doctor must confront his past.

Plot Edit

Journey to the Future (1) Edit

The TARDIS lands inside a container, in a big room which looks like a storeroom, just after the Doctor finished doing some adjustments to re-calibrate the ship. The travellers come out, and while Susan and Barbara stay behind to take notes of the container they landed in, the Doctor and Ian go look outside to see where they are. From the window, they see a world who, in its appearance, looks rather similar to the Earth, albeit some year in the future: cars are now hovering, and there are screens showing the time of the day and the year, Space Year 2003.

They ask a passer-by, introducing himself as Robac, City Warden, for information, and he confirms them that that is indeed the year they are in (which Barbara and Ian take as a confirmation that this is their Earth forty years in the future). He asks them whether they are friends of the Inventor, but the Doctor replies they are travellers just arrived there and curious to know more. Robac then invites them all to his house, where they are welcomed by his wife, Tanna, head of a city scientific guild, and his teenage daughter Reena. As Susan and Reena retire to the room of the latter, the adults sit at the meal with Robac and Tanna, who inform them this is a very important day: the Inventor, the man to whom the people of their planet owe their scientific development, has returned and is going to address them with a public speech, which shall be broadcast citywide from the screens.
