Publisher's summary edit
With the first objective of his mission reached, almost nothing is going to plan for the Doctor. He finds he cannot contact or return to the Time Lords' home planet, Gallifrey. And just when Molly O'Sullivan thinks she’s escaped one conflict, she finds herself in the thick of another one.

- Molly believes that "the Doctor" sounds like a "tenth rate stage name."
- Prior to World War I, Molly worked in Eaton Place in London.
- Molly compares the Daleks to Kaiser Wilhelm II.
- Molly refers to Gallifrey as "Galilee".
- Molly has four brothers.
- Molly initially believes that there may be Germans inside the Daleks. The Doctor tells her that there is "something far worse than Germans" inside the Dalek casing.
- Upon entering the TARDIS, Molly realises that she has been inside it before. Although she consistently refers to it as the "Tardy-box", she is nevertheless able to operate the console and dematerialise the TARDIS.
- The TARDIS translation circuit curiously does not work for Molly.
- Upon arriving in 1972, Molly is surprised that electric lights have replaced gas lights and that cars have entirely replaced horse drawn carriages.
- The Doctor and Molly arrive in 1940 on the HMS Grenade.
Time travel edit
- The Daleks refer to World War I-era France as "Earth's 20th century, Zone One."
- The Daleks refer to 1972 as "Earth's 20th century, Zone Two."
- The Doctor knows how to fly a plane, and proceeds to do so. He has forgotten how to do so by the time of his eleventh incarnation. (TV: The Bells of Saint John)
- The First Doctor previously witnessed the evacuation of the British Army from Dunkirk in May 1940. (PROSE: Just War, Byzantium!)
- Molly assumes that Gallifrey is in Ireland. (TV: The Hand of Fear, Human Nature)
- The Doctor visits 107 Baker Street, the house in which he lived during his fifth incarnation from November 1866 to November 1867. (AUDIO: The Haunting of Thomas Brewster) Henry Gordon Jago and George Litefoot lived in the house while they were fugitives in 1894 (AUDIO: The Monstrous Menagerie) while Molly did so in 1918 (AUDIO: The White Room). In 2008, the Doctor left the house to his companion Thomas Brewster. (AUDIO: A Perfect World)
- Straxus tells the Doctor that the Time Lords have foreseen "something terrible in the time tracks." (TV: Rose, The End of the World, et. al)
- Due to the fact that Kotris was erased from history, these events never happened. The Doctor, Molly and the Dalek Time Controller are the only individuals who remember the original timeline. (AUDIO: X and the Daleks)
- Molly again refers to the Doctor as "the Doctor" in a sarcastic way. (AUDIO: The Great War)
