Publisher's summary Edit

“This is The Chesterton Exhibition. A series of breathtakingly faithful tableaux, painstakingly detailed to the nth degree. Dedicated to the life of that most extraordinary time traveller, Ian Chesterton!”

Ian finds himself in a shrine to his own past, and on the run with a man named Pendolin.

From Coal Hill School to Jobis Station, from Totter's Yard to the Crusades, Ian's history is unfolding.

And a confrontation with a deadly enemy with a voracious appetite awaits...

References Edit

  • Ian awakens to find himself in a recreation of his bedroom, which leads into a recreation of his science classroom in Coal Hill School in the Chesterton Exhibition, dedicated to his travels with the First Doctor, in the Time Museum. One of the oak chairs has "Kilroy" carved into it while there is a burn mark on one of the desks. Ian is reminded of one of the third years spilling sulphuric acid on it years earlier. Pendolin tells him that he is to be the star attraction of the exhibition.
  • Pendolin tells Ian that he may have been the first human male to travel with the Doctor.
  • Ian tells Pendolin that one of his students, Susan Foreman, used to look at him as if he were a sample under a microscope, something quaint.
  • Ian has been removed from his own time through the use of a time scoop.
  • The Time Museum has been invaded by creatures which feed on memories. They devoured every exhibit except for the Chesterton Exhibition, and killed everyone in the museum except for Ian and Pendolin, who hid. Ian is severely affected by them at first. His memories of his travels with the Doctor become muddled and he cannot even the remember the name of his wife Barbara Chesterton.
  • The Time Museum featured a exhibit on the Sontaran-Rutan War containing thousands of Sontaran and Rutan Host ships and millions of lives, all of whom were eaten.
  • Ian grew up in London during the Blitz in World War II.
  • Pendolin brought Ian to the Time Museum in the hope of luring the Doctor to be his star exhibit. However, he was unable to attract the Doctor's attention.
  • Ian eventually realises that it is not the creatures outside who are feeding on his memories but Pendolin. He used to occasionally feed on one of the thousands of visitors to the Museum but rumours of mysterious deaths resulted in the number of visitors following off dramatically. Starving, Pendolin devoured the memories of his exhibits, beginning with the occasional Sontaran. He reasoned that, given that the Sontarans are a clone race, they would not be missed. Ian determines that the creatures were attacking Pendolin all along.
