Publisher's summary

The TARDIS travellers arrive in a bizarre landscape seemingly immune to the physical laws governing the rest of the universe. Ace, Hex, Sally and Lysandra battle to rescue the Doctor from the trap he's walked into… soon realising that the odds are stacked against them.

Because the Doctor is playing an old adversary again: Fenric, shatterer of worlds. But the gods and monsters who inhabit this strange realm loaded the dice against them long ago, in the dim and distant past — and defeat's their only option.

References

  • Ace once again refers to Sally as "Private Benjamin".
  • Prior to Hex joining the TARDIS crew, the Doctor and Ace once visited Mars.
  • Lysandra was born in 1982. As a young child, her favourite television series was Jimbo and the Jet Set.
  • Ace mentions the 1980s hip hop group Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. Sally does not understand the reference.
  • Fenric takes Ace back to Perivale, the day she was taken by the time storm, in an attempt to convince her to change history by preventing her leaving.
  • Fenric also takes Sally and Lysandra into their personal future, where they will both die, when a fleet of white ships will destroy the entire universe. He does this to convince them to kill themselves, before they experience this potential future.
  • Hex is a Catholic while Ace belongs to the Church of England.
  • Weyland's shield has the ability to make one of his pawns invisible whenever they hold it. But it can grant an Elder God even greater omnipotent power.
  • Weyland is an Elder God, who has manipulated the lives of the TARDIS crewmembers, in a similar way that Fenric previously did, so he can win his game against Fenric for the shield.
  • Ace compares Weyland to Freddie Mercury due to his moustache.
  • Peggy is working for Weyland, after he kidnapped Albert. However, when Peggy retrieves Weyland's shield, he kills Albert and Peggy.
  • Sally suffers from athazagoraphobia, which was caused by Weyland manipulating her life, to foreshadow the invisibility effect of Weyland's shield.
  • Weyland prevented Hex's death after being shot by Brigadier-General Bartholomew Kitchen in Scutari, because he would be a crucial pawn in his game against Fenric.
  • The Elders play their games in a dimension called the Board.
