"Oh, by the way, did you realise that you just shoved Wil into the river?"

Miskaritic Otherversity, seat of learning for the whole Doji Peninsula of the Askartane Galaxy; it is to this tranquil campus that the TARDIS crew, worn out by the events they witnessed at Arcis and on Boodjoori, come to take a well-earned relaxation. Punts down the river, snoozes in the shade of pleasent trees, being studied lightly by the natives.

But relaxation does not come easily to all; for the tensions and frictions between our heroes bubble to the surface, and could undermine them all. Relevations past are remembered, revelations new are announced; momentous changes in the lives of all.

Behind the Otherversity lurks a shadow world, where dreams and reality merge, and from this realm comes a deadly carnivore. The Doctor cannot stop him; Jadi Morok cannot stop him; Angela Ferris cannot stop him. Only Gwilym Young can save the inhabitants of Otherversity from becoming tasty snacks.

Oh dear. They're doomed, aren't they?

This is another round-robin story featuring the 8th Doctor, Wil, Jadi and Angela.
