The TARDIS brings the Doctor, Ace and Mel to a recently reopened
shipyard in Merseyside. It's 1991, the hardest of times - but now
they're shipbuilding once again, thanks to the yard's new owners, the
Dark Alloy Corporation. A miracle of job creation - but is it too good
to be true?
While the Doctor and Ace go in search of an alien assassin at loose in
the yard, Stuart Dale, discoverer of the near-magical Dark Alloy
material, has an extraordinary proposition to make to his old college
But who is the Corporation’s mysterious client? Who does she really
represent? And what's the secret of the Blood Furnace? Seeking answers,
the Doctor and friends are about to find themselves in very deep water…
