Overview
The Doctor is on trial for his life. Plucked out of time and space by the Time Lords, he is charged with transgressing the First Law of Time. He must defend himself against the prosecution led by the sinister Valeyard.

In a desperate bid to clear his name, the Doctor presents his defense to the charges laid against him. In the year 2986, the starliner Hyperion III makes his way to Earth...but all is not well. The Doctor and Mel arrive in response to a distress call, although not in time to prevent a murder.

And this will not be the only death: someone aboard will kill again and again to protect a secret. And while the murderer closes in above decks, in the Hydroponic Center a terrifying new breed of creature is about to waken.
