"The Revolution is proceeding apace, Comrade Lenin."

Petrograd, 24th October 1917. The Bolsheviks are in armed revolt against the Provisional Government; Lenin and his lieutenants prepare to bring about the dawn of the Socialist order.

It is into this chaos that the Doctor, Wil, Jadi and Angela arrive to repair the TARDIS after their traumatic exit from the Otherverse. But quickly separated, they all fall into deep trouble; whilst Angela befriends a Tsarist family and joins a counter-revolution, the Doctor rubs shoulders with Lenin and Trotsky and incurs the hatred of a man known as Stalin.

Wil and Jadi? They just want to rescue their friends and leave, before this October becomes rather too Red.

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