Whilst sightseeing in Paris, 1979, the Doctor and Romana notice a series of unexplained temporal disturbances – ‘like a crack in time,’ as the Doctor puts it. They discover that Count Scarlioni has knowledge of advanced technology that far exceeds that of normal 20th century Parisians. Not only that, the Count is forcing a genius professor to undertake time experiments. The question is, why?
As the time travellers become involved in an audacious plan to steal the Mona Lisa it becomes evident that sinister forces are afoot… What lies behind the Count’s suave persona and what are his plans, not only for Paris, but the entire world? The Doctor and his friends must find the answers before time runs out.
Not only is this a wonderful addition to your CD collection, it also has several bonus features that you’ll want to get hold of including an interview with Lalla Ward regarding her time on Doctor Who and colour PDF files of the original camera scripts.
