As the United Kingdom headed for a general election, Sherilyn Harper's far right New Britannia Party (NBP) threatened to hold the balance of power in a volatile political climate. Several assassination attempts were made against Harper, first by unknown gunmen and then by a terrorist organisation called United Front — which also firebombed some district NBP offices in the southeast. These assassination attempts were later discovered to have been staged by the NBP itself. As the crisis deepened, riots broke out in London just before polling day.
This descent into chaos was partly caused by a creature from a distant world, the Fearmonger, which fed off fear. Still, it was helped by Harper's party's attempts to create fear in the British populace. The Seventh Doctor intervened and destroyed the creature — and exposed Harper and her party — by using the skills of "shock jock" Mick Thompson. (AUDIO: The Fearmonger)
