The Doctor was securely strapped to a chair, the pain cowl over his head. Admit it,’ said the Security Chief. Admit that the War Chief sent for you. You are both of the same race. You are both of the same race his planet is part of a plot to betray us to the Time Lords!’. You would never believe the truth,’ said the Doctor. So I prefer to remain silent. What you prefer doesn’t matter. The Security Chief signalled to a guard to turn on the power. Can you feel pain coursing through your head? Believe me, I can destroy your mind.

One of my favorite Doctor Who stories.

This adaptation of the last second Doctor, adapted by script co-author Malcolm Hulke. The original story ran for ten episodes, and replaced two scripts that fell through. I think that many viewers thought it was a bit padded. The novel confirms this, as the page count is about that of a four or six episode story adaptation.
The TARDIS lands in what appears to be World War I. However, as they endeavour to avoid capture they see a number of things that are anachronistic, but invisible to the inhabitants of the world, and the fact that something is very wrong when, after passing through a fog bank and encounter Roman soldiers.
Some alien force has kidnapped soldiers from various wars on Earth, and are conducting war games for a reason that is revealed late in the story.
At the climax of the story, some of the Doctor's past is revealed - more than had been the case to this point. And the resolution of the story requires that the Doctor change his form again...
In adapting this story, Mr. Hulke wisely trims the early-middle of the story, where things contained a bit of a run around. It is an important story, and this adaptation preserves the most important parts for the reader.
