PreviouslyOn [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho139ProjectDestiny Doctor Who]]. Thomas Hector Schofield, known to his friends as Hex, was [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho122TheAngelOfScutari shot in 1845 Crimea]]. Taking their friend to the hospital they [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho058TheHarvest first met him]], the Forge, a shady organisation the Doctor faced [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho023ProjectTwilight once before]] ([[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho045ProjectLazarus and would again]] [[HaveWeMetYet in his future]]) under the leadership of [[ManipulativeBastard Nimrod]] fought a plague of alien bugs simply labelled "the contaminants".
When Nimrod reveals to Hex what [[MissingMom happened to his mother]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent what she really was]], Hex' faith and trust in [[Creator/SylvesterMcCoy the Doctor]] is absolutely shattered and he leaves the crew of the TARDIS.
But before the Doctor and Ace depart, they're informed that one of the symbols in the TARDIS is in the Forge archive as well... Which means a Time-Lord is buried there.

But what the Doctor finds seems to be beyond possibility, and in tow comes [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho115FortyFive something far worse]], and the return of an [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho073ThickerThanWater old friend]] can spell doom for them both.
