The Doctor answers a psionic distress call being sent from England in the 1920s. There, in the environs of a fairground, he is reunited with an old friend: Harry Houdini. To Adric and Nyssa, the name means very little, but to the Doctor’s companion Tegan, he is a legend. Escape artist extraordinaire, Houdini’s reputation will last for decades. But how does Harry know so much about Tegan? Is it really just guesswork, as he says? Is Harry right to be concerned about the fairground’s fortune teller, who claims to have supernatural skills? Both he and the Doctor suspect an alien influence they know of old. What neither the Doctor nor his friends realize is that, somewhere in the shadows, a far more sinister and familiar presence is lying in wait for them.

The Doctor answers a psionic distress call being sent from England in the 1920s. There, in the environs of a fairground, he is reunited with an old friend: Harry Houdini. To Adric and Nyssa, the name means very little, but to the Doctor’s companion Tegan, he is a legend. Escape artist extraordinaire, Houdini’s reputation will last for decades.

But how does Harry know so much about Tegan? Is it really just guesswork, as he says? Is Harry right to be concerned about the fairground’s fortune teller, who claims to have supernatural skills? Both he and the Doctor suspect an alien influence they know of old.

What neither the Doctor nor his friends realize is that, somewhere in the shadows, a far more sinister and familiar presence is lying in wait for them.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A rich vein of humor that feels consistent with the television show at the time…This installment stands on its own two feet and is another entertaining slice of period Who clearly evoking the atmosphere of its time.” CultBox.com
“Perhaps the best installment in the Destiny of the Doctor series so far, it succeeds in capturing the key elements of the show’s nineteenth season, including the characters of the TARDIS crew, while also offering a fascinating insight into the Doctor’s long-running friendship with one of history’s most remarkable protagonists.” Hunts Post online
