The Doctor, meaning to take Mrs. Clark to the post-War era instead lands during the War in Nazi Germany where for a little boy, a warning poster about an airraid is representative of a monster who has been lurking at night during blackouts.

This short story combines a character piece and a monster story and does a decent job with both. The plot moves and the sound design is well-done. Constance's thoughts on how the British are feared and bombing this town are only lightly explored but Miranda Raison's reading does give this story sufficient emotional weight.
