The TARDIS materialises
at the Roof of the World, Central Asia, in 1289. There they meet
Marco Polo and his fellow travellers, on their mammoth journey
across the Pamir Plateau and through the Gobi desert to Peking.
Unfortunately for the Doctor, his Ship proves to be of immense
interest to Polo, who sets his mind on presenting it to the
mighty Kublai Khan on arrival at his court.
But Polo isn’t the only one with designs on the TARDIS. The
war-like Tegana will go to any lengths to steal the magical blue
box – lengths which endanger the lives of all the travellers.
When the Doctor meets Kublai Khan himself, his precious Ship is
his only collateral in a high-stakes game of backgammon – and
Khan is a master of the game...
