This Doctor Who: Short Trips Rarities title was first released as an exclusive title free to anyone subscribing to the Doctor Who Main Range. It is now also presented here for the first time as a general release.
The Eighth Doctor and Lucie Miller have stopped off in Little Morton for a fry-up. It’s not the healthiest way to start a day, but better than some: the Major from the local barracks has just fallen to his death. Or has he? A visit to the hospital highlights the surprising levels of health in the soldiers. There’s clearly something going on beneath the surface at Little Morton: and it’s about to come to light…
