Publisher's summary Edit

It's been many years since Victoria Waterfield travelled through time and space fighting monsters and dictators. Now she's back on Earth fighting for the future of the planet. But are her environmental campaigns so far removed from those former adventures in the vortex?

As trucks carrying nuclear waste start to vanish into the air, her friends are kidnapped by a dangerous alien police force and a nuclear power plant runs dangerously close to meltdown... Victoria spies a familiar blue box.

The Doctor. After all this time, the Doctor has come back.

And now... Victoria Waterfield is going to kill him..

  • According to the Pleyarec Dominion's galactic classification system, the Sol System is in Sector 12. The Pleyarec police officers Collector Leiss and Constable Weska refer to the Doctor as "the Destroyer of Worlds."
  • By this time, Victoria is over 60 years old.
  • The Pleyarec resemble "large reptilian bipeds in police riot gear" with tails.
  • Peri is opposed to nuclear power.
  • One of the staff members at the nuclear plant shouts "D'oh!" after being assaulted by Victoria, perhaps an unintentional reference to fictional power plant employee Homer Simpson.
  • The Doctor discovers a living specimen of Ediacara biota, a life form which lived during the Cambrian Era, approximately 500,000,000 years earlier.
  • The Doctor objects to Sean referring to him as "dude."
  • Marion refers to the Pleyarec as "Godzilla's grandkids."
  • Peri compares Leiss to Officer Dibble from Top Cat.
  • Dominic has created a time corridor linking his office in the nuclear power plant to Earth in circa 500,000,000 BC.
  • The Doctor describes the Terrible Zodin as "a devastating de Vil of dissimulation, the queen of corruption and chicanery."
