This story features the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith

A small team of scientists have been secreted aboard a research station located on a hidden asteroid in deep space. Their mission - successfully test a system designed to created wormholes at will, and enable their government to use it to quickly end a rebellion that is threatening to topple the old order.  When the final test is successful - too successful; it ruptures the fabric of the universe allowing living shadows to cross over.  When the third Doctor and Sarah Jane arrive, they discover the remnants of an investigative team sent to discover what went wrong.  Initially under suspicion, the Doctor and Sarah team up with the surviving investigator and work together to drive the creatures back into their own dimension and seal the breach before every living being has been consumed.

This story features the Second Doctor, Ben and Polly

Nobody could ever question Ben Jackson's loyalty.  In the navy and now in time and space, he was someone to be trusted, someone to have on your side.  He was unshakable. With Polly and the Doctor, this trait had become symbiotic.  Together, they were a team, a unit - rock solid in taking care of each other no matter what the Universe may throw their way.  And right now, as Ben moves quietly through an alien control room, this solidarity is needed more than ever.  Polly has been captured.  Imprisoned by the Emod, her only hope of salvation rests with Ben and the Doctor.  However, as time passes and Polly's would be rescuers strive to reach her, Ben finds himself undergoing a personal trial of faith.

Traveling through time is not without its hazards.

When the Doctor is forced to bring the TARDIS out of the space/time vortex, in what should have been a routine rematerialization goes horribly wrong.  The time machine has materialized in a part of space already occupied by another object, and it's all going to get rather messy. As the TARDIS, and the other vessel, struggle to co-exist, strange things start to happen. Whilst the Doctor tries to control the situation in the console room, Ace must travel alone into the bowels of the TARDIS on a terrifying journey. Her deadly mission will challenge not only her own resolve, but will her friendship with the Doctor as it has never been tested before! What is the other object? Can it destroy the TARDIS? Can the Time Lord's friendship with his companion survive?  And why is Ace turning into a dog?
