Tales of intrigue and political manoeuvring from the seat of Time Lord power. Join Romana, Leela and K9 as they find enemies on all sides in a delicate game with the fate of Gallifrey hanging in the balance. Gallifrey was the homeworld of the Time Lords. By one account, the planet was actually called Jewel, and during several time wars, it was utilitarianly referred to as the Homeworld. The literal translation of the name "Gallifrey" was "They that walk in the shadows". Gallifrey and all its cloneworlds were destroyed in the War in Heaven. It was believed to have been destroyed in the Last Great Time War, but was actually frozen in a pocket universe by the first thirteen incarnations of the Doctor and later discovered at the end of the universe. By this point in their history, the Time Lords were wary of being discovered alive, although they still continued their mission to ensure nothing threatened the Laws of Time, such as when the Kyme Institute's temporal experiments threatened history, although now the Time Lords refused to take action openly and relied on agents to carry out the work.
