Twilight's End was the seventeenth short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Defining Patterns. It was written by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright. It featured the Seventh Doctor and Nimrod.

Summary[edit | edit source]

A wonder of modern technology; the vast, secure building waits.

A part of the building's very fabric; the advanced computer Oracle waits for a face its systems recognise.

And at the heart of this steel, concrete, cable and flesh; a figure thought long-dead waits for a visitor.

Nimrod has one last meeting with his Doctor...

Plot[edit | edit source]

The Doctor enters the Forge. Several times security guards try to stop him, but the Doctor soon realises that he is being herded somewhere — doors close behind him and open ahead of him.

He finally encounters Oracle, who doesn't want to let him in, so the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver.

The Doctor finds a man connected to Oracle and realises it is Nimrod. The Doctor, appalled by what Nimrod has done, offers him a choice — he gives him a syringe with the Twilight cure. Nimrod can decide whether he wants to cure himself or not.
