After saying their goodbyes to Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago, The Doctor and Leela respond to an alien distress call beamed direct from Victorian England. It is the beginning of a journey that will take them to the newly built Space Dock Nerva… where a long overdue homecoming is expected.
A homecoming that could bring about the end of the human race.
- Destination: Nerva was the first story in the first series of The Fourth Doctor Adventures.
- Space Dock Nerva is in orbit of Jupiter. It is equipped with Security Drudgers.
- Exactly twelve years earlier, Alison gave birth to a daughter whom she named Clare. However, she only lived for seven days.
- The Doctor and Leela are still wearing the Victorian era clothing which they wore while battling Li H’sen Chang and Magnus Greel in London in 1889. (The Talons of Weng Chiang)
