"We need to reach out. We need to continue the line..."
On a windswept northern shore, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything in its path - yet the burned still speak.
The Doctor encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. They have no weapons, no strategy and no protection against a fire sent to engulf them all. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology; but at least they have the Doctor on their side... Don't they?
A thrilling adventure starring the Doctor, as played by Matt Smith.
Well-written, amusing and Colgan perfectly captures Matt Smith's on-screen delivery in the dialogue
