Publisher's summary[]

A new adventure with the Second Doctor as told by his companion, Victoria Waterfield.

The Great Space Elevator is a marvel of human engineering; a transit tube stretching from the equator up to a space station held in geosynchronous orbit.

When the TARDIS lands in Sumatra in the future, the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria are captured by guards just as the station loses power. Together with Security Officer Tara Kerley, the three travellers take a one-way trip on the elevator to fix the problem, and find themselves confronted by a powerful alien force that threatens to wreak chaos on Earth...


Episode One

The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria arrive at the base station of a space elevator on the island of Sumatra, in the near future. When disaster strikes the elevator's Sky Station, the trio investigate, where they find the crew have been affected by an unknown force.

While exploring the Sky Station alone, Victoria is threatened by a malevolent electrical entity.

Episode Two

A sentient electrical life force from the depths of space wants to take over earth by generating deadly super-storms on the surface below to sustain itself.

Assisted by a crewmember on board the Sky Station, the trio fight back, managing to disperse a storm generated by the entity before it manages to reach the surface.
