Lant Land was the sixth short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Life Science. It was written by Jonathan Morris. It featured the Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Turlough.

Summary Edit

The Doctor, Tegan and Turlough have materialised in an apartment. They find a couple, named Simon and Joanne, who welcome them and offer refreshment. The couple act strangely, wanting to change Tegan and Turlough's names. They tell the Doctor they don't work, they just play. He gets them to explain by pretending it's a game. They play a game called Lant Land. On a screen they watch people live their lives.

Tegan and Turlough explore while Simon and Joanne talk with the Doctor. Simon explains that the Lants were such perfect simulations that people downloaded themselves into the Lants to play the game.

Meanwhile, Tegan and Turlough explore, and they think they have figured it out. They think they are in the simulation. They go to tell the Doctor, but he tells them they have it backwards, that the simulants downloaded themselves into the real people, and that this is the real world but Simon and Joanne are simulants.
