On the Back Cover:
going to save us this time?'
1914. The inhabitants of the little Norfolk
town of Farringham are enjoying an early
summer, unaware that war is on the way.
Amongst them is Dr John
short, middle-aged history teacher from
Aberdeen. He's having a hard time with his
new post as house master at Hulton Academy
for Boys, a school dedicated to
producing military officers.
Summerfield is enjoying her holiday in the town, getting over the terrible
events that befell her in France. But then she meets a future Doctor, and
things start to get dangerous very quickly. With The Doctor she knows gone, and
only a suffragette and an elderly rake for company, can Benny fight off a
vicious alien attack? And will Dr Smith be able to save the day?
