May 17th 1944: A squadron of Hurricanes shoots down an unidentified aircraft over the Dorset village of Turelhampton. A routine operation. So why is the village immediately evacuated?

2001: Troops still occupy Turelhampton, guarding the village's dark secret. When a television documentary crew break through the cordon looking for a story, they find they've recorded more than they'd bargained for.

Meanwhile, in Cornwall, a journalist is witness to a terrifying ceremony: agents of the worst evil in history plan to unleash a new, unthinkable horror on the world.

Caught up in both a deadly conspiracy and historical mystery, retired Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart calls upon his old friend the Doctor. Half-glimpsed demons watch from the shadows as the Doctor and the Brigadier discover the last, and deadliest, secret of the Second World War.

*Featuring the Sixth Doctor and the Brigadier

*The Doctor is travelling alone; the Brigadier has met the Sixth Doctor before; Winston Churchill recalls the events of 'Players', but it's unclear whether the Doctor does as well or is simply avoiding the subject; therefore this adventure can occur some time after 'The Spectre of Lanyon Moor', and before 'Business Unusual'

*A BBC Books 'Past Doctor Adventures' novel
