Escaping from a volcanic eruption on the planet Dulkis, the Doctor is forced to use the TARDIS's Emergency Unit, which takes the craft out of normal time and space... and out of reality itself! The time-travellers arrive in a mysterious world peopled by fictional characters — Gulliver and Rapunzel, D'Artagnan and Sir Lancelot — but also by creatures from mankind's worst imaginings...
