The TARDIS arrives near Paris during the French Revolution, a time of great upheaval, bloodshed and terror. Soon, with the Doctor trapped inside a burning farmhouse, Ian imprisoned and Susan and Barbara on their way to the guillotine it's clear this will be one of their most dangerous and exciting adventures yet...

Our lives are important, at least to us, and as we see, so we learn. Our destiny is in the stars, so let's go and search for it...
