Clara is summoned to an impossible conference call, alerting her that the deadly Whisper Men are closing in on Vastra, Jenny and Strax. Someone is kidnapping The Doctor’s friends, leading him toward the one place in all of time and space that he should never go.
It’s a deadly trap that threatens to unravel his past, present and future.
This story features for the first time on television, The Doctor prior to stealing the TARDIS. The event had previously been portrayed differently in the comic strip adventure:. Time & Time Again. His granddaughter Susan Foreman appears briefly when the First Doctor helps her into a TARDIS before the Gallifreyan Clara suggests he take another one because it will be more “fun”.
