Roanoke Island, 1590.
The TARDIS materializes in the past, and the Doctor's companions, Professor Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago, find themselves prisoners of the natives in the New World.
But there's something something strange here – stranger than even the colonists, led by Englishman John White.
What are the ghostly children? And who is the Old Man of Croaton?
The travellers are about to discover the secret of the lost colony... and it may cost Jago's life.
