Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
The Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey are catapulted from present day Earth to a futuristic civilisation in a distant galaxy. At the Robotov Palace they find the Tsar and Tsarina ruling over their empire whilst human workers toil on satellite moons. The Doctor is mistaken for an old ally of the Tsarina's, but then suspected of treason when the Palace comes under attack.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- This story was recorded at Fitzrovia Post.
- The title is a play on the original trilogy of the famous Star Wars movie saga. It should be noted that the cover was designed in homage to the album cover of "Geoff Love & His Orchestra: Star Wars and Other Galactic Themes", which was a record owned by Paul Magrs early in his life.
- The Tsar of the Robotov Empire and the Tsarina's ally Father Gregory are based on the historical figures Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Grigori Rasputin, whom Michael Jayston and Tom Baker played in the 1971 film Nicholas and Alexandra respectively.
- This story was later included in The Nest Cottage Chronicles.
- Michael Jayston also played the evil version of the Doctor called the Valeyard in TV: The Trial of a Time Lord and multiple Big Finish audio stories.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- This story is set directly after AUDIO: Sepulchre.
- A symbol of a snake eating its own tail (ouroboros) is mentioned, similar to the one the Eleventh Doctor would say the Corsair had tattooed somewhere on their body with each regeneration. (TV: The Doctor's Wife)
