Other Guides to this Story


The sixth Doctor is brash, stubborn, and often condescending and arrogant. He wears a bright multi-coloured coat. His regeneration was quite recent.


Perpugilliam "Peri" Brown is an American botany student from the 1980s who decided to join the Doctor on his travels during Planet of Fire. In The Caves of Androzani, the fifth Doctor sacrificed himself to save her life. She stayed with the newly regenerated Doctor in The Twin Dilemma despite post-regeneration trauma that led him to attempt to strangle her.

Recurring and Historical Characters



This story was originally written as a crossover with 2000AD's Judge Dredd. The published version does not actually feature any Judge Dredd characters or settings and nothing in the story depends on a knowledge of the Judge Dredd comics. But if you do happen to be familiar with them you will probably appreciate this story more than if you don't.
