This ties into the three part Doctor Who Excelis Story line with the fifth-sevenths Doctors appearing in separate adventures and finds Bernice Summerfield randomly landing on Artaris hoping to get drunk in a particularly difficult period of her life. However, she finds all is not well as the planet's humanoid population is limited to a single city-a city facing a plague. A strange man pronounces poophecies of doom as the Empress tries to hang on to power. In the midst of this fragile situation comes not only Professor Summerfield but also the zany Time Lord Iris Wildthyme who is out for the perfect accessory for a dress-a relic that has been at the center of life in Excelis for centuries.

This story is decent and certainly is an uptick from the more dour Excelis Decays. It provides a reasonable enough explanation for the relic and its true purpose. The acting is good, even though I'm not familiar with Summerfield. The idea of teaming Summerfield and Wildthyme is a smart choice, and the two have good chemistry. The result is a mostly enjoyable story.
