This 'Missing Adventure' in the post-TV series Doctor Who strand centres on a rebellion an alien world and a linked kidnapping in Central London in 1998. The head of MI5 is assassinated whilst a seige situation is violently dealt with by SAS troopers. The Fourth Doctor is caught-up in events when a computer disc is surreptitiously slipped into his pocket by a dead man. Along with companion Sarah-Jane Smith, The Timelord tries to prevent the breakdown of society on Earth and at the same time attempts to thwart an invasion by outer-space warriors. This story is canonically in-between 1975 TV stories 'The Seeds of Doom' and The Masque of Mandragora.
One of the better 'Missing Adventures' it benefits from focusing on the most popular and charismatic of the Timelord's incarnations and the show's best companions; out of the thirty odd books in the range it is certainly one of the five best.
