4: Rule of the Eminence
In his quest for universal domination, the Master plans to exploit the terrifying Infinite Warriors of the mysterious Eminence. The Doctor’s friend, Molly, is key to that plan’s execution, and now, aided by corrupted genius Sally Armstrong, the Master is close to success.
Paranoid and perplexed after his recent experience, the Doctor skirts the fringes of the fifty-year conflict between humanity and the Infinite Armies. Wary of changing the course of history, he fears that to fight the Eminence would be to do the Daleks’ bidding. But when Time Lord CIA agent Narvin provides the impetus for the Doctor to act, Liv Chenka joins him in a desperate race to save their friend and stop the Master.
As the Doctor goes head to head with his oldest and deadliest rival, this war is about to get very personal indeed…
Part 1: The Death of Hope
Heron’s world, Coloney Ro351. A defeated, desolate backwater world, a human settlement chewed up and spat out by the Enimence war. Now the survivors may face an even greater treat than the Infinite Armies that surround them. Because a man has appeared from nowhere and claims to offer salvation. A man with a magic travelling box, and a dark-eyed assistant named Molly O’Sullivan. Much more hangs on the fate of Hope Gardner than anyone around her knows. Because the Doctor is watching…
Part 2: The Reviled
Above the jungle world of Ramosa, the Eminence war is raging. Sensing the growing threat, the native Ramossans have risen up against the human colonists in their midst and regained control of their planet. While Sally Armstrong negotiates on behalf of her silent partner, Narvin sends in the Doctor and Liv Chenka to try and make a difference. But what is his true agenda? And can the Doctor really hope to save everyone on a world where humanity is despised?
Part 3: Masterplan
When the Doctor decides to stop a war, the last thing he expects is to be trapped aboard a doomed spaceship with his oldest friend – who just happens to also be his oldest enemy. The Master is just as surprised: this isn’t part of his masterplan. Meanwhile, Liv and Sally tiptoe around a brilliant and dangerous man. Professor Markus Schriver is a genius in the field of teleportation and neural manipulation. Unfortunately, he is also insane. The clock is ticking, and not everyone can make it out alive…
Part 4: Rule of the Eminence
History tells us that humanity will win the war against the Eminence. That Grand Administrator Walter Vincent will welcome home the sons and daughters of fighting and starvation. The newscasters of Alliance Update will announce across the Ten Systems that planet Earth is open for business, its air purified and its people victorious. The Eminence will be no more. This is all a matter of historical fact. But the Doctor and the Master both know, history can be rewritten. Every line.
