Publisher's summary Edit
Two RAF fighter jets are on a training flight over North East Scotland when one of them is plucked from the air and promptly disappears. UNIT are called in, and the Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart are soon on the scene. They enlist the help of a local military officer - a young lieutenant by the name of Mike Yates.
The Doctor discovers a link to the recumbent stone circles that are plentiful in this part of Scotland. The stones are thousands of years old, and are soon revealed to hold a terrible secret. Then Mike Yates disappears, abducted by an alien race that has a grievance with humanity. Their intention is to harness the power of the stones in order to take their revenge. For the Doctor and the Brigadier, the race is now on to save their new friend Mike and the entire planet Earth.
to be added
- A future incarnation of the Doctor sends a message to the Third Doctor via a recording on a telephone. It is not explicitly stated which incarnation it is. However, going by the way the future Doctor spoke, and taking the events of Shadow of Death and Babblesphere into account, it is most likely the Eleventh Doctor. Shockwave later confirmed that it was the Eleventh Doctor.
to be added
- The story reveals how Mike Yates came to join UNIT, and also the circumstances behind his promotion to captain. However, they clash with the stated events in PROSE: The Scales of Injustice.
