This is the first of the series of Gallifrey stories which are set in the Doctor Who universe, although the Doctor never appears in them. The stories revolve around the politicla machinations that take place among and around the Time Lords on Gallifrey - the Celestial Investigation Agency, Braxiatel, and Lord President Romana. Leela and K9 are also present, Leela having been married to Andred and living on Gallifrey for some years.
When this first story starts, Andred has disappeared and Leela is attempting to go and live among the Outsiders on Gallifrey when Braxiatel finds her and takes her to Romana, who has asked for her help. From here, things get complicated by the rumours of a device that could fracture time, and the "allies" of the Time Lords who want to control time themselves. Should the ability to manipulate time be available to all? What would that mean to the Time Lords?
These are great stories, and I've listened to series 1 (4 stories), series 2 (5 stories) and series 3 (5 stories) and am working my way through them again so I'm up to speed to listen to series 4.
This is great stuff, and it's nice to be able to listen to the stories from the beginning again and get them all into the overarching story arc. Looking forward to Gallifrey 1.2 now - Square One.
