Patrick Troughton at his wildest. The TARDIS travels outside of time to escape a lava flow, and straight into a land of fiction. Where the slightest suggestion can alter the flow of reality, not even Jamie's face may be safe from alteration. With unusually short episodes, this 5 part story lasts the same length as most 4 part stories. Hang on for the ride.
