|'The Churchill Years':
'I Was Churchill's Double'
by Alan Barnes
Alexandra Palace, 1942. Strange television signals show a paranoid Churchill urging on the resistance in German- occupied Britain. A man in a battered leather jacket makes a guest appearance. The broadcasts come from another world, one where the country is now part of the Kaiserís Empire. Of course, the Doctor is involved, and while Churchill claims to understand the notion of Ďalternative historiesí, he never expected to be part of one.
