Queen Victoria is stranded with Maharaja Duleep Singh on a mysterious fort in the middle of the ocean.
The fort has been ravaged by storms since it was built. There are ghosts inside and there’s something alien outside. It’ll do anything to get its release.

Beware the hands that heal.
The Doctor and Peri land on the planet Necros to visit the funerary home Tranquil Repose — where the dead are interred and the near-dead placed in suspended animation until such time as their conditions can be cured.
But the Great Healer of Tranquil Repose is far from benign. Under his command, Daleks guard the catacombs where sickening experiments are conducted on human bodies. The new life he offers the dying comes at a terrible cost — and The Doctor and Peri are being lured into a trap that will change them forever.
At last, the only classic-era Doctor Who adventure never to be novelised is here, and by the author of the original script, Eric Saward.
The Eleven has a plan. A grand plan. An appalling plan. A plan that endangers all life in the cosmos.
With Ace working for the enemy, The Doctor must rely on scheming Time Lord Cardinal Ollistra for help. The stage is set for an epic confrontation.
Because The Doctor has a plan to stop the Eleven. A grand plan. An appalling plan. A plan that endangers all life in the cosmos.
Whichever one of them wins, the Dark Universe won’t want to lose…
This set of stories are set in the beginning of Tom Baker’s last television series as The Doctor, in between the stories State of Decay and Warrior’s Gate. Trapped in E-Space, a pocket universe next to our own (N-Space), The Doctor acquires a new companion, Adric, a young mathematical genius, who begins to travel with The Doctor and Romana (Lalla Ward).
A long-form earthbound Doctor Who story that uses science in an unusually meaningful way, Doctor Who and the Silurians (1970) poses important ethical and political questions which it treats with respect, epidemiologist and Doctor Who critic Robert Smith? argues.
