The Master doles out diminutive deaths and, wow, those laser shoes really paid off in the end!
Opening on Part 1’s epic cliffhanger, Doc is stuck in a brainforest, Team TARDIS is plummeting to Earth in a cockpit-less plane, “O” was in fact The Master all along, and mankind is about to be reformatted. Oh, yes, didn’t we mention that before? Extra-dimensional space aliens, the Cassavin, are moments away from having Daniel Barton implement their plan of world dominance. How do they plan to achieve that? By him technically having us all agree to DNA reformatting in the Ts & Cs, naturally.
Kablammo! It’s one paragraph later now and Doc has since escaped the brainforest, teamed up with Ada Lovelace and Noor Khan, and is now speeding across Nazi-occupied Paris, attempting to steal The Master’s TARDIS to get herself back to the future. And in the meantime, the rest of Team TARDIS are on an adventure of their own to put the kibosh on Barton’s software roll-out. It’s set to be a marvellous adventure — as long as Doc remembers to retroactively Bill-and-Ted that plane from paragraph one.
