Summary Edit

In the Department of Administrative Records on Gallifrey, Time Lady Tianna notices that someone had recently gone through the records, something that only an operator with High Council clearance should be able to do. Concerned at this breach of security, Tianna turns to the Doctor for help. He arrives in his TARDIS with Lady President Romana and K9. Romana is annoyed to realise that Coordinator Vansell is already aware of the security breach.

The Doctor, Tianna and K9 investigate the terminal used in the infiltration and track its location to the old Capitol beneath the current one. The Doctor discovers a group of fanatics who have used a time scoop to capture ancient monsters, including a vampire, around the universe. Their leader, Handrel, plans to combine their DNA with Time Lord DNA to achieve immortality through unlimited regenerations. Tianna and K9 contact Romana and request help. Romana and her troops arrive. A battle breaks out. Handrel and his followers are killed. However, in the chaos, Tianna has been bitten and becomes an immortal vampire. The Doctor has to figure out a way to save her.
