The Doctor and Leela travel to Victorian London where they uncover a secret organisation who follow an ancient Chinese deity, and soon find themselves being hunted by a criminal from the 51st century who’s searching for his lost time machine. This compelling classic story is often voted by Doctor Who fans as one of the best, and features Baker and Jameson on sparkling form. The storyline includes elements that may offend the sensibilities of a modern audience, something we’ll discuss at today’s event.
