A conference of lexicographers: bromides in tweed. But the leading expert in the field is found dead by her own hand - and by her holographic assistant. Is he responsible? Does the death fit and conventional definitions? Can the Doctor realise who wrote the suicide not and why, exactly, it was riddled with spelling errors?
Peri should help out, but there’s a guy. Someone who loves languages even more than the Doctor, Maybe, she realises, enough to kill for. Or perhaps just enough to ask her out to dinner. Unless of course he’s already spoken for…
Is it madness? Seeking transcendence in the complete lexicon? Having the right words on the tip of your tongue but never quite knowing when to use them?
If so, how?
Colin Baker (The Doctor), Nicola Bryant (Peri), Moray Treadwell (Book), Marie Collett (Professor Osefa), Chris Eley (Warren) and Oliver Hume (Cawdrey)
