The Time and Tide was the second short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Defining Patterns. It was written by Neil Corry. It featured the Seventh Doctor and Ace.

Summary[edit | edit source]

A man thinks he is in a London pub with his friend Wilksy. As they drink, a man comes in looking for his friend Ace. The bartender, Paddy O'Brien, knows the man as the Doctor. The Doctor claims that O'Brien has his friend.

The Doctor tells the customers that O'Brien is an alien who lured them there — though he explains that only half of them are real, with the other half being parts of O'Brien's plan to lure people into his trap. Wilksy is not real. The Doctor gets Ace back, releasing a power that tears the "pub" apart. He brings the real people back to London where they belong.
