Plot

The Doctor and Lucie follow the criminal time traveller Nick Zimmerman to a decaying spaceship in the Time Vortex, where he is planning to sell time travel technology to the highest bidder. After escaping the Tar-Modowk, aliens who have been attracted to the ship, they chase Dr. Zimmerman to a garden party, where Dr. Zimmerman appears to have aged 30 years. The Doctor guesses that the party is in a time loop, and confronts Zimmerman, only to learn that Zimmerman has settled down, married a woman called Rachel and rejected a life of crime. The Doctor informs Zimmerman that he must close the loop before the Tar-Modowk enter the real universe, but Zimmerman refuses as his time loop is the only thing keeping Rachel alive. The Tar-Modowk, riding Vortisaurs, break through into the universe and begin killing guests, so Zimmerman agrees to close the loop. Rachel dies, but before The Doctor leaves, The Headhunter appears and kidnaps Lucie.

Cast

Continuity

  • A Vortisaur first appeared in the Eighth Doctor's first Big Finish play Storm Warning. It was named Ramsay and kept in the TARDIS as a sort of pet, up until Minuet in Hell. It was named after Prime Minister James Ramsay MacDonald. The Vortisaur in this story is apparently named after Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
  • Nigel Havers later appeared in the Sarah Jane Adventures story, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith. That story also involved a love story forming part of a space/time trap.

Production

  • The play includes an original song, Bucimeana, with music by Tim Sutton and lyrics by Paul Sutton from a traditional Hungarian poem. The song is sung by actress Julia McKenzie, who plays Rachel Zimmerman.
