1950s Kenya. The Mau Mau uprising. A disparate group of women lie low in a remote house in the jungle, waiting for a resolution or for rescue. Among these British imperialists is Elizabeth Klein, a refugee from a timeline that no longer exists - thanks to the Doctor.

Reunited, the Doctor and Klein are forced to set aside their differences by terrifying circumstances. People are dying in this remote place. One by one. And there's something out there, in the jungle, accompanied only by the flutter of a thousand tiny wings...

With the Mau Mau uprising raging in 1950s Kenya, the Time Lord encounters an alien foe.
With the Mau Mau uprising raging in 1950s Kenya, the Time Lord encounters an alien foe. Seventh Doctor adventure stars Sylvester McCoy and Tracey Childs.
Late 1963 saw a number of dramatic events - the death of CS Lewis, the assassination of John F Kennedy - and Kenyan independence in December 1963.
The decade before that had seen more than enough tumult in Kenya - violent repression and recrimination. In fact, only last year did a court rule that three elderly Kenyans have the right to claim damages for torture conducted by the British Army.
The Doctor arrives in a remote homestead during this bloody period of history. He is reunited with an old acquaintance, ex-Nazi Klein - of course it wouldn't be Doctor Who without some alien threat, and it comes in the form of an avian group intelligence.
But by employing a strategy of divide and conquer, is the Doctor as bad as those he opposes?
Sylvester McCoy once more plays the Time Lord in this full cast audio drama.
