Judoon in Chains was the second story in Classic Doctors, New Monsters. It featured the Sixth Doctor and the Judoon.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Sixth Doctor is no stranger to courtroom drama, but faces a very different challenge when he prepares to defend a most unusual Judoon.

After an environmental clearance mission goes wrong, Captain Kybo of the Nineteenth Judoon Interplanetary Force is stranded in Victorian England, bound in chains, an exhibit in a circus show. But he has allies: Eliza Jenkins — known to audiences as "Thomasina Thumb" — and the larger-than-life "clown" in the colourful coat.

Uncovering a trail of injustice and corruption, the Doctor and Kybo soon find themselves on trial for their lives...
