Storyline

Discovering that they've all been drugged, the Doctor tries to escape and passes out just as he opens the door, envisioning the evil Count Grendel as he loses consciousness. When he awakes, he is, once again, at the tip of a blade, and his life threatened by those who believe he is behind all of it, while the Count has kidnapped Prince Reynart. Meanwhile, back at Count Grendel's castle, Romana finds herself an exact double for Princess Strella, whom the Count plans to marry once he ascends to the throne so he can claim her land for his own (once he kills her, too).

Zadek: Doctor, I can see only two objections to your plan.
Doctor Who: Only two?
Zadek: What if the android breaks down?
Doctor Who: Oh, well, I can't guarantee you anything, but if I had the proper tools...
Zadek: Second problem, security.
Doctor Who: Security? Only the three of us even know of George's existence.
