Publisher's summary[]

A god has died. A crime has been committed. And an even greater threat lies beneath the surface.

On the ocean world of Funderell, Romana has been reunited with her old friend from Gallifrey, Sartia, and the Doctor is investigating the history and religion of this strange world. But events have quickly spiralled out of control.

Why is this planet of such interest to the Time Lords? What lurks in the depths?

The life of more than one world is at stake. But time is running out.

  • The Doctor offers himself for execution in Romana's place.
  • When reading the Book of Futures, the Doctor mentions that in the beginning, time split the omniverse in two, and continued until there was an infinite number of times.
  • The Book of Futures is made from parts of the Sleeks: it's cover is Sleek skin, and the chains around it are their bones.
  • The Doctor theorises that the Time Lords forgot about Funderell millennia ago, during the great cut-backs of the 53rd Bureaucratic Regime.
  • The Doctor notes that good companions are modest: he asks Romana how many times she's saved the universe, but she hasn't kept count.
