I.D. (A Three-Part Story)
In the 32nd Century, The Doctor finds himself on a planet piled high with discarded computer technology. Picking over these remains are an army of Scandroids, a collection of unsavoury, illegal Data Pirates and a team of researchers from the mysterious Lonway Clinic. This is a world of organic-digital transfer and ‘personality surgery’ which The Doctor finds disturbing enough, until something far more deadly starts to emerge.
