The Doctor, Victoria, and Jamie arrive on a mysterious world where researchers are trying to find what happened to a planet that should be thriving but is instead a dead world. Their histories include reports of monsters, something the scientists dismiss out of hand, but the Doctor warns that just because the monsters aren't here now, doesn't mean they never existed, and sure enough, they return.
For the second straight story, the Companion Chronicles offers us a strong character piece that looks in on the older Victoria who has a mysterious piece of paper that the Seventh Doctor bought off her, and we get to hear Victoria teaching Jamie to read. The concept is well-executed and intriguing to boot. So, this is a very solidly written and acted installment.
