Who set up this boat race? What happened to any of the participants? Did Doc know all along? We require enlightenment!
Just as the TARDIS is on the fritz, the Fifth Doctor and his chums are summoned by the White Guardian to participate in a space regatta alongside some cosplaying eternals. Apparently, it’s imperative that the right team win, as enlightenment itself is the prize.
However, Turlough’s still there, of course, so you can be sure that the Black Guardian isn’t far away either, and so a game of endless backstabbing commences. Will the android-like and arbitrarily good eternals win and learn about love? Or will the archetypically bad eternals take charge and claim enlightenment? Well. Erm. That’s what we’re about to discuss.
