Synopsis

Philip Hinchcliffe, acclaimed producer of Doctor Who (1975-77) returns with a new story for the Fourth Doctor and Leela.

Philip Hinchcliffe, Ewan Bailey, Joanna Vanderham, Tom Baker, Ken Bentley, David Rintoul, Kieran Bew, Chris Porter, David Richardson, Marc Platt, Jane Slavin, Fleur Hinchcliffe.

The TARDIS arrives on the remote Shetland isle of Bothness and the Doctor and Leela find themselves threatened by Vikings. Only all is not as it seems. The locals are celebrating the old Norse fire festival of Up Helly Aa, so there’s nothing to be worried about. Or is there?
