A Doctor Lite story that's caused by a fault in the TARDIS after Churchill and the Young Kazran from, "A Christmas Carol" disembark the TARDIS in first Century BC Britain where the battle rages between Caesar and the primitive Britons. However, Kazran discovers the Britons have some help.

Overall, more than any other story, this one is driven by Churchill and he and Kazran play off each other remarkably well as the pairing of the the aging former Prime Minister and a man from the distant future works very well.

The surprise twist is not much of a surprise and by this time, it's been done before. However, we're once again given a story that showcases Churchill's strength and fortitude as a leader of men and also as a strategist. The story also features a great scene where Churchill is offering military advice to Caesar, which makes the story worth listening to for that alone.

Out of the whole box set, this was the story I preferred the most. The 11th Doctor only briefly shows up in the beginning and the end, so it is very Doctor-light. Churchill is now older in life and retired when he jumps aboard the TARDIS finally. One neat aspect of the story was the bringing back of a young Kazran Sardick from the Christmas special "A Christmas Carol". This is a historical story with a classic villain. The reason I liked this story so much (besides favoring historical adventures) were due to the scenes where Churchill meeting Julius Caesar. The mutual respect they develop for each other is excellent. No previous stories from this set are required, but it works better if you are familiar with the previous TV episode where Kazran appeared.
