His salvation lies in the hands of a gentle telepathic child. Forced by her captor to tend to his wounds, she soon starts fighting in secret to keep him alive and save them both. But when a desperate attempt to escape goes wrong, he lands far from her help on 21st century Earth. Surrounded by strangers, his mind broken and body ravaged, how will he survive? Will his friends be able to find him in time? Will he find justice or seek revenge against those who brutalised him? Follow the Doctor through his own personal hell.
