"Hush. That might have happened for you but it hasn't happened to me yet, so I don't want to hear about it."

Attending a wedding of an old friend, the Doctor begins the tale of Verrazano 4, a planet in the midst of a revolution, and one with which the Time Lord appears to have a strange connection.

While the opposing armies both attempt to use the Doctor to their own ends, universe-spanning powers use Verrazano itself as a pawn in their galactic chess game. Time and again, the Doctor arrives on Verrazano 4, leaving it thinking that all loose ends have been sewn up, but events conspire to bring him back to the planet.

Will his work there ever be finished?

This is the first round-robin story featuring the first eight Doctors, along with Vicki, Steven, Jamie, Victoria, Sarah, K-9, Romana, Tegan, Nyssa, Peri, Benny, Roz, Chris, Sam, and Jadi.
