Production notes
Recorded August 2003
Released December 2003

The Doctor has done what he never thought he would ever do - kill his closest and most dearest companion. Despite Guy's attempts at cheering him up, the Doctor is slowly sliding into a deep form of depression.

Before too long, however, the Doctor and Guy both realise that they are being toyed with - tested by someone they have never fought before. All the tests revolve around one location, one period of time, and one family line.

Who is toying with the Doctor and Guy, and why? In what way is this linked to their recent bout with the Watcher? And just why are the Doctor and Guy constantly being drawn to locations in Queensland in one time period?
