John Hurt returns as this enigmatic figure for a series set in Doctor Who's Time War...1.1 THE INNOCENT. As the Daleks mass their time fleet for a final assault on Gallifrey, something ancient is waiting for them at Omega One. And a sacrifice must be made. Arch-manipulator and Time Lord strategist, Cardinal Ollistra receives shock news of the Doctor's death. Meanwhile, on the planet Keska, a parochial war has returned to plague a peaceful civilisation after decades of tranquillity.

If only the Doctor were still alive. 1.2 THE THOUSAND WORLDS. With the high-ranking Time Lord Seratrix behind enemy lines, the War Doctor finds himself assigned to a rescue mission.

Trapped in a citadel swarming with Daleks, the Time Lord rescue force must find a way to overcome insurmountable odds.

An essential survey for all interested in the pottery of the London area, this study charts the development, peak and decline of two ceramic traditions: the shelly wares of c 1140-1220, mainly city-based but reaching Scotland and across the North Sea to Norway, and the greywares of c 1170-1350, widely used in the city and even more so in its hinterland. In addition to fabric analyses, form typologies, a gazetteer of find spots and scientific data, the study includes a summary of greyware production centres, and considers function, use, marketing of medieval pottery and the chronology of selected consumer sites in London and its region.

Will a handful of beads and the power of a story be enough to heal friendships across three generations? "You're supposed to be my friend, Jas, " Mitsu said matter-of-factly, but there was hurt in her voice. "If you're not going to act like one, I want my bracelet back." "Fine!" I said. With one sudden movement, I tore the bracelet off my wrist. Too late, I remembered the clasp. The bracelet caught for a moment on the width of my hand, then gave. The red beads flew from the broken string, bouncing with tiny plops over the boardwalk and off into the mud. Mitsu burst into tears, turned and ran. "Mitsu!" I called. The shock of my own action had stopped the flow of anger with a sudden, sickening bump. "I'm sorry!" I called after her. But Mitsu was gone. Shannon is excited about spending a week at her friend Rina's house, but she's a little nervous too.

Rina's grandmother, Jas, never saw Mitsu again. That is, not until Shannon and Rina find a handful of forgotten beads in the bottom of a cardboard box.
