Following the events of Doctor Who: Doom Coalition, Gallifrey, the universe and Time itself had been saved, but at great cost.

The Doctor lost one of his companions. Helen Sinclair (Hattie Morahan), an academic from 1960s England, was left trapped in time and space with the Eleven (Mark Bonnar), a mad, homicidal Time Lord retaining the personalities of his previous multiple regenerations. Now, the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann), joined by Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker), must hunt through time and space to find their former companion.
