"By a route obscure and lonely, Haunted by ill angels only, Where an Eidolon, named Night, On a black throne reigns upright, I have reached these lands but newly From an ultimate dim Thule – From a wild weird clime, that lieth, sublime, Out of Space – out of Time."

- Dream-Land by Edgar Allan Poe, 1844

The Sixth Doctor, Crystal and Jason are summoned back to Bar Galactica by Karl. He takes them on a quest for treasure and universal danger, into an obscure dimension, to the icy world of Ultima Thule.




  • Terrance Dicks wrote many stories for the first three decades of Doctor Who, as well as the stage play, The Ultimate Adventure. He also adapted it for audio in 2008. This is his first Companion Chronicles story.
  • The only other Companion Chronicles stories to feature one of the Doctors in the cast were Peri and the Piscon Paradox, also with Colin Baker, and Project: Nirvana, featuring Sylvester McCoy.
