  • The Dover boys Tom, Dick, and Larry, students at Pimento University (P.U.), take their mutual fiance Dora Standpipe out for a gay outing at the park. While playing hide and seek, the Dovers hide in a distant saloon, leading to the dastardly Dan Backslide (archenemy of the Dover boys) abducting Dora. Dan Backslide takes Dora to his even more distant cabin home. Dora beats Dan nearly senseless, as the Dovers arrive sometime later after receiving a telegram sent by a diligent pair of scouts. While confronting Dan, the three boys knock each other out, and Dora leaves the scene with an older man who walks around the area in a bathing costume.1
  • May 17. Queen Victoria (79) arrives in Torchwood London for an inspection. At the same time, an alien creature escapes, turning the young aged as it absorbs youth from its victims, including Torchwood London's head, Archie.

With the help of a living statue, they save a universe within a diamond.3
  • The Doctor (fourth incarnation) and Romana arrive in Victorian London, and encounter the Doctor's old friends Henry Gordon Jago (52) and George Litefoot (55).
