If we fight like animals, we'll die like animals.

Seventh Doctor

The Shadow Of The Scourge

The Pinehill Crest Hotel in Kent is host to three very different events: a cross-stitch convention, an experiment in time travel and... the summoning of the scourge.

The Doctor, Bernice and Ace find themselves dealing with a dead body that's come back to life, a mystical symbol that possesses its host, and a threat from another universe that's ready for every trick the Doctor's got up his sleeve.

This time, has the Doctor gone too far?
