SYNOPSIS

In response to a warning of great danger given by the White Guardian, the Fifth Doctor sets new co-ordinates and the TARDIS materialises on the heaving deck of an Edwardian racing yacht.

But The Doctor soon discovers that this is no ordinary yacht-and no ordinary race. Captain Striker is competing for an unusual prize-“Enlightenment.”

The crew will be lucky to reach port safely-but with such a prize would They be lucky to win?

DEVIATIONS FROM THE TELEVISED STORY

  • In the chess game at the beginning, Turlough plays black; whereas he played as white in the episode.
  • Upon reading a “First British Submarine Launched” headline in a newspaper, The Doctor concludes that the year is 1901.
  • The power chamber on Wrack’s ship is floored with a grid, rather than simply having a hole in the centre of the floor.
  • Wrack uses several different kinds of crystal in the book, not just red opals.
  • The Eternals are expanded in greater detail.
