Poe will be taken to a hospital, and will die in three days time without ever coming out of his coma. But even as the Doctor explains this, the man in the gutter groans and expires. Bewildered, the Doctor hurries Ace back to the TARDIS. At the door, they look back and see that the gutter is empty. In a moment, Poe staggers around the corner, drops to his knees in the gutter, then gets up and stumbles into another bar...

The fate of the world is at stake in more ways than one. Someone, or something, is trying to alter the course of history at this most delicate point. And destroy the human race. Posing as a nuclear scientist with Ace as his research assistant, the Doctor plays detective among the Manhattan Project scientists, while desperately trying to avoid falling under suspicion himself.

THE SLEEP OF REASON

Caroline 'Laska' Darnell is a perfectly normal 19 year-old: worried about boyfriends, acne and exams; passionate about dance music and piercings. But one day, a terrible suicide attempt sees her admitted to the Retreat, a groundbreaking medical centre in the woods. To her horror, she recognises the Retreat from her nightmares about an old building haunted by ghostly dogs, and she realises that something is very wrong with the institute. Her research brings her to the attention of medical officer Dr Smith, and his friends Fitz and Trix. Smith is utterly fascinated by Laska's waking dreams and prophetic nightmares, but if Laska can't trust her own perceptions, can she trust Dr Smith?

TIME ZERO

Anji is miserable. The Doctor has finally dropped her back in her own time, but all she feels is lonely. Dave is dead, her work bores her, and the last she saw of the Doctor, they were having a fight about his decision to let Fitz go to his certain death in the Siberian wastes of a century ago. An offer to go and work on a time-research project at the Naryskin Institute in Siberia seems to offer a change, and possibly a connection with her lost past, but the mission turns out not to have the purpose Anji had thought. While Anji battles against the freezing cold, and other, less palpable forces, the Doctor is involved with the Grand Duchess Anastasia, a showman billed as the Great Attractor, and his mysterious servant Holiday, as he tries to work out why all of them are so desperate to be involved with the Naryshkin project, and just what did happen to Fitz's Siberian expedition a hundred years ago

SYNTHESPIANS

'We are the Nestenes. We have been colonising other planets for a thousand million years.' In the 111th century, nostalgia is everything. TV from the 20th century is the new obsession, and Reef Station One is receiving broadcasts from a distant Earth of the past. Dixon of Dock Green and Z-Cars are ratings winners - and the inhabitants of the New Earth Republic can't get enough. But there are other forces that need Reef Station One. An ancient but dying race sees this human outpost as a last hope for survival...and millionaire Walter J Matheson III sees it as a marvellous business opportunity. When the Doctor and Peri arrive they find a fractured society dependent on film and TV. They also discover that the Republic's greatest entrepreneur is in league with one of the Doctor's oldest enemies. The Doctor and Peri must unravel the link between Matheson's business empire and the Nestenes. Because if they don't, they could end up in the deadliest soap opera of all time

SPIRAL SCRATCH

When the Doctor and Mel receive a message about the Lamprey, the Doctor is confused. He's never heard of such a thing. Mel on the other hand has, which is odd as the Lamprey is a demon from a distant planet, far, far in the future - somewhere she's never heard of, let alone visited. Meanwhile two strangers are watching every move the Doctor makes, one minute stopping calamity, the next causing it. Are they the force for good that they claim? Just as Mel thinks she's got this time-travelling business sorted out once and for all, along comes the peculiar Pierrot family to challenge everything she believes to be real...
