Neve McIntosh reads this original adventure by J. T. Colgan, featuring the Eleventh Doctor
On a windswept northern shore, at the very tip of what will one day become Scotland, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a
Viking attack. Then the burning comes. They cannot run from it. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything—yet the burned still speak.
The Doctor is looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. They have no weapons, no strategy, and no protection against a fire sent to engulf them. Add in some marauding Vikings with very bad timing, a kidnapped princess with a secret of her own, and a TARDIS that seems to have developed an inexplicable fear of water and they all have a battle on their hands. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology, without communications, without tea that isn’t made out of bark. Still, at least they have the Doctor on their side—don’t they?
A thrilling adventure featuring the Doctor as played by Matt Smith in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.
