The Curse of Fatal Death
A parody of the original series. The Doctor agrees to meet his old foe The Master on the planet Tersurus. But when The Doctor arrives, assisted by the lovely Emma, The Master has prepared a series of hideous tortures for them. Horrible tortures. Evil, nasty and decidedly unpleasant tortures…
As The Doctor and The Master attempt to outwit one another a bizarre odyssey unfolds, featuring treacherous trapdoors, bottom burps, foul-smelling sewers and the infamous sofa of reasonable comfort. When the Daleks become involved, a series of mishaps trigger The Doctor’s regeneration cycle, leading to the biggest and most exciting adventure of his lives!
