On a windswept Northern shore, at the very tip of what will one day become Scotland, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. The Doctor is just looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology; without communications; without tea that isn’t made out of bark. Still, at least they have The Doctor on their side… Don’t they? A thrilling new adventure starring The Doctor, as played by Matt Smith.
