On 30th Century Earth, the Doctor and Bernice Summerfield encounter the Adjudicator Roz Forrester and her squire Chris Cwej…
A warning from a dying alien leads the Doctor and Bernice to Earth. However Earth in this time period is not a good place to be.
The murder rate is rising, but the killers seem to be acting without motive. The TARDIS crew’s investigations lead them to a military training planet, a prison inside a star, and a terrifying old foe.
And all the time they are being pursued – by two dogged Adjudicators who’ve stumbled onto a terrifying conspiracy. Chris Cwej and Roz Forrester.
Things will never be the same again.

Despite Yasmin Bannerman and Travis Oliver appearing as their characters for the first time in Damaged Goods, this is the first chronological appearance of their characters.
There is a timeline error present with the state of the TARDIS control room. The Doctor is using the control room that was redesigned by Ace, Hex and himself. (The Settling) However, this story comes much earlier in the Doctor’s timeline to that one, and hence the appearance of this TARDIS console room is left unexplained.
Deviations from the original novel
Likely due to copyright issues, the behind-the-scenes villain of the original novel is never explicitly identified by name in the audio, although the dialogue between him and the Doctor makes it clear that he is still intended to be Tobias Vaughn.
