Publisher's summary[]

After years as a companion to the Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon was returned to his own world and his own time, and his memories of his travels were erased, until now.

A visitor from beyond the stars needs to explore Jamie's past, and discover what went wrong. What happened in the year 1688, when the TARDIS landed in London, and the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe were welcomed into the court of King James II.

It was the year of the Glorious Revolution. And the birth of a whole new history...


to be added




  • In the alternative timeline briefly created by Jamie in this story, the Glorious Revolution was a failure and James II retained the throne until his death. Consequently, the Jacobite Risings and the Battle of Culloden never took place. James II's grandson Charles Edward Stuart, better known as Bonnie Prince Charlie, eventually ascended to the throne as Charles III. He was still the reigning monarch in 1788. As the Young Pretender died on January 31, 1788 in real life, this suggests that this audio drama's frame story may take place in January 1788. However, it is possible that he lived longer in the alternative timeline than in real history.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 5 March 2009 at the Moat Studios.
  • It was first released on 22 August 2009.[1]
  • Part One of this story has a pre-title sequence.
