The Doctor and Mel land in London, 1999, to celebrate the New Year. But other forces are making deadlier preparations to ring in the new millennium: a software firm is about to run a program that will change the very fabric of reality, while an ancient entity from the universe’s origins is due for resurrection. When Anne Travers’ fear of the Great Intelligence, and millionaire Ashley Chapel’s research combine, London is set to be transformed into a terrifying place inhabited by unimaginable dangers.
