Publisher's summary Edit
In the 32nd century, the Doctor finds himself on a planet piled high with discarded computer technology. Picking over these remains are an army of Scandroids, a collection of unsavoury, illegal Data Pirates and a team of researchers from the mysterious Lonway Clinic. This is a world of organic-digital transfer and "personality surgery" which the Doctor finds disturbing enough, until something far more deadly starts to emerge.
