In the flood and the fire,
In the heart of the sun,
We were lost, we were dying,

So we’ll dance through the night,
And the dawn never comes,
Just the two of us.
Part One: The Edge
“It tore you up, everything you were…”
There’s a hotel on a cliff overlooking the sea. All sorts of people wash up there. The retired policeman, the faded star of the music hall and a girl who doesn’t know who she is…
Zara arrives at the hotel searching for her sister Abby – but after all they’ve been through and fought over, will she want to be found?
But they’re not the only ones with secrets, running away from their pasts. And someone else in the hotel wants to see them all dead…
Part Two: The Battle
“What is it – history? What are you looking at when you study it?”
Ninth of August, 991 AD. Abby and Zara are on the Essex coast in the rain, searching for a man they loved and lost.
The local people are terrified of the savage pirates waiting just across the water. The bold and brave local earl is ready to wage battle to free his people from such fear.
After all they’ve been through, Abby and Zara only want to help. But future history has already been written. They’re about to find out how much more they can still lose…
Part Three: Consequences
Once upon a time there were two sisters.
They were created by beings called the Grace. Both sisters had magic powers. When they were together, they could do anything. Go anywhere and when. Reach into people’s minds, even influence their thoughts.
They tried to be good. They tried to do what was right. But even when they tried their hardest to help people there were unintended consequences.
They still did terrible things. So many people still died. The sisters lost people they loved. There was a man… They thought they’d lost him forever.
There are lots of stories about the two sisters. But that story – their last story, about the day they chose to die… Those who knew what really happened are all dead.
Except for one. A man. Living by the sea. And he promised never to tell…
Abby and her sister Zara are not real people. They were created by pan-dimensional beings to help save space and time. They’ve been blessed with special powers. They can see into people’s heads, even influence their thoughts. And, so long as they’re together, they can go anywhere or when.
But the universe is dangerous, unpredictable. Abby and Zara have made mistakes – and many thousands have died. They know they’ve done wrong, that they have made enemies, who scour all of history to find them.
So they keeping moving on, trying to make amends, trying to help people. And not to do any more harm…
Part One: The Line
“The moment we stop, the moment we let the past catch up with us… We’re done for.”
Marek has brought Abby and Zara home to the city where he grew up. They’re wary at first – they’re meant to keep a low profile. But Marek assures them that everyone he knows here is dead.
There’s a Rune Festival approaching, an excuse for a wild party – and it’s like there’s something in the air. Abby and Zara are soon swept up in the crowd, but Marek hasn’t told them the whole truth.
Why has he brought them here? What can they do to help? And why is everyone so terrified of Manchu Golding?
Part Two: The Flood
“There goes the neighbourhood.”
The rain hasn’t stopped in three days and the floodwaters are rising. A small group of townspeople are determined to stop their town from being dragged into the sea.
Abby and Zara are keen to help – anything to keep themselves busy after what they’ve both just been through. Maybe, finally, they’ve found somewhere they might settle down…
But there’s something causing the flood. And it can’t let anything stand in its way.
Part Three: The Dark
“When you’re together, you two can do anything.”
Wherever Abby and Zara have ended up this time, their powers no longer work.
It’s dark and cold and there are no stars. Frequent sand storms threaten to cut the girls to pieces. But they are not alone…
On a planet at the end of the universe, someone they never thought they would see again has been patiently waiting.
Abby and her sister Zara are not real people. They were made, created by pan-dimensional beings – the Grace – to help save space and time. The Grace gave them special powers. With just a thought they can be anywhere or when in the universe. They can affect people, see into their heads, influence their thoughts… They’re still learning what they can do.
Now they’ve completed their mission, the Grace have left them to fend for themselves. The universe is dangerous, unpredictable. Abby is not so good-as-gold as she appears. Zara’s already destroyed a whole world. And they’ve only got each other.
Part One: The Sphere
“It’s great here. You can get anything!”
The Sphere is a private satellite complex and offers every kind of entertainment. It doubles in size every week. They lash new hotels and casinos to the outer skin, pinning them in place with huge girders. Zara came here by mistake and was quickly caught up in the noise and excitement. It’s got into her head. When her sister Abby comes to the rescue, Zara insists that she can’t leave. What is the secret that Zara is carrying with her? Why is Abby so ill? And how long can she resist the Sphere getting into her head as well?
Part Two: The Fog
“There’s no such thing as witches.”
Abby and Zara find themselves in the small town of Compton in October, 1912. In the local pub they meet Nan, who offers them the local beer and then has them arrested. Something is killing the town’s children, something that hides in the fog, something that prevents Abby and Zara from leaving. But Abby knows something worse is coming to the town – something that will kill them all. Can Abby and Zara prove their innocence and help solve the mystery? Or is it sometimes better not to know?
Part Three: The End
“The Grace don’t know everything. We have to do what’s right!”
Abby and Zara’s past is catching up with them. A man they did wrong by has hunted them down across all of time and space, just to sell them out. The space pirate Kreekpolt knows the sisters can save his daughter’s life – even if it burns Abby and Zara completely away. After that, ten thousand dead souls – hungry and empty and furious – want whatever is left…
A signal in a Welsh mountain is calling an ancient battlefleet to Earth. Owen Harper and Ianto Jones head up into the Brecons to stop it.

There’s an empty office block in Cardiff. That’s nothing special – plenty of businesses go under, clear out, cease to exist. All that’s left behind is an empty building. But there’s one office block that refuses to be forgotten about.
There have been stories about that building – strange lights, funny goings on, faces pressed up against the glass. Enough to get the locals worried. Enough to ask Torchwood to get involved.
It’s Friday night. Ianto Jones has better things to do with his time than look round a haunted building. But he goes anyway, and it turns out that The Office has been waiting for him.

Romana is approaching her final term of office, and hopes to leave her world in a state of peace and harmony. Narvin is concerned about the implementation of a controversial Precog programme, one that seeks to predict the Time Lords’ future. Ace is an operative for the Celestial Intervention Agency, having learned the art of interference from one of the best…
And somewhere, across the stars, an ancient force is stirring: one of the Time Lords’ greatest heroes is returning to our universe. But he may also prove to be their greatest threat.

As old friends fight to reunite, new threats lie in wait…
Because Braxiatel was right: war is coming.
Returning to her original homeworld, Romana finds Gallifrey to be cold and empty… the corridors of the Capitol lie silent and the wastelands are populated only by a handful of primitive monsters.

Romana’s secret is in danger of being exposed by those she trusts, and the only hope of escape is through the Axis. But will Leela’s forthright determination to see justice done, whatever the costs, mean their chance to get home will be lost forever…?

Time will tell.

As Leela discovers the results of one such crucible, Romana and Narvin are pushing forward ways to discover the secrets of time travel, and jump-start their new Gallifrey’s evolution.

Romana and her comrades find themselves in the dank and grubby wastelands of northern Gallifrey, trapped between two forces in a long and ancient war.

Only the late Lord Rassilon holds the key…
The President of the High Council wants Romana dead. The Temporal Intervention Agency has been dispatched to hunt her down. Its mission: to eliminate her from the timelines for ever. It would be as though she had never existed…

Amidst all the confusion, the High Council of Time Lords is poised to take the planet into an all-consuming war against the cosmos. They’re selling their secrets to the highest bidder, equipping the universe with temporal technology it should never have been allowed.
