Plot[edit]

The TARDIS lands on Nooma, a world in the midst of an industrial revolution. But the Doctor, Jo and Mike Yates quickly discover more: The sky is at war with the ground, with continents moving and somewhere, a starship has a role to play. Mike finds himself in a life or death fight, Jo is caught in a laborers' rebellion, and the Doctor must uncover what is happening to Nooma before the struggle for survival destroys all...

Continuity[edit]

The story takes place after the Missing Adventure Dancing the Code, also by Paul Leonard.
