The Plague of Dreams was the fourth and final story in The First Doctor: Volume Two.

Publisher's summary Edit

"Pray welcome, one and all, to this, a fantasy in two acts, presented, most humbly, for your pleasure. We bring you drama and magic, angels and demons, a tale of mysterious plague... of nightmares made flesh... of a war fought both in this world and those immeasurably distant. A war, in fact, fought through the mists of time itself. It will make you gasp! It will make you weep! It may even make some of you wake-up..."

References Edit

  • The psychoactive virus turns dream into reality, and was created by the enemy.
  • The Player refers to the enemy as taking the "belt and braces" approach.
  • The Player quotes William Shakespeare.

Notes Edit

  • While the three other stories in the box set all adopted straightforward first-person narration, the narrative of this story is presented in a framing device common among The Companion Chronicles.
  • The Player warns the Doctor about the Time War and the Daleks in his future but they are not referred to by name, leaving the references very vague. This was intentional in order to maintain the feel of a First Doctor story. (BFX: The Plague of Dreams) The references are elaborated upon in the trailer for the box set, which is presented from an in-universe perspective, serving to complement The Plague of Dreams in particular.
