The TARDIS is attacked by the nucleus of a virus called the Swarm and lands at the Bi-Al Foundation, a space hospital in the 51st century. With the Doctor in a coma, it's up to scientist Professor Marius and his robot dog, K-9, to help Leela save the Time Lord's life. But will Marius' outlandish plan really work? And are they too late to prevent the Age of the Virus?
