Synopsis

They say lights have been seen in the skies over Swammcombe. They say this is the place to spot flying saucers. Allison Williams is not so convinced. But maybe Allison Williams is wrong. When she witnesses a UFO launch from the top of a hill is it signs of alien activity, or something more sinister? Counter-Measures are looking into Open Band – the disciples of the so-called Swami of Swammcombe, Lord Cavall. They’ve been been monitoring Cavall since noticing a curious rise in psychiatric cases among his followers. How true are Cavall’s teachings? What happens during the elite ‘Visualisation’ sessions? And what does this all have to do with the King under the hill?

The Splintered Man

Written by Roland Moore

When a Spanish scientist kills himself in an explosion at a secret test facility, Counter-Measures are called in to salvage anything they can from the wreckage. But someone else is stalking the scene - and they’re determined that whatever is lost will stay lost.

As Rachel is reunited with an old flame, she finds herself drawn into the heart of a mystery. What exactly was Doctor Javier Santos working on? And who exactly is trying to prevent its discovery?

The Ship of the Sleepwalkers

Written by Christopher Hatherall

The Counter-Measures team wake on a luxury cruise, with no knowledge of how and when they got onboard. Who has brought them here, and why?

As their investigations deepen, they find themselves in the middle of an international conspiracy, with enemies on both sides. How can they escape when they can’t even trust each other?

My Enemy’s Enemy

Written by Robert Khan & Tom Salinsky

Glamorous international arms dealer, Lady Suzanne Clare, has come to town and is offering herself into the hands of Counter-Measures. The price: her own safety. But can their former nemesis ever really be trusted?

With one of their own side seemingly working for the enemy, the race is on to prevent a disaster. But who are they really fighting? And what does Lady Clare really want?

Time of the Intelligence

Written by Andy Frankham-Allen

A strange voice is interrupting TV broadcasts across the capital, and bear-like creatures are raiding factories, stealing equipment and killing guards. The Great Intelligence and his army of Yeti have returned. And there’s only one team that can stop them.

Familiar with their foe, Sir Toby calls on the help of Edward Travers to defeat the menace. But without the Doctor to help them, can the Intelligence ever be stopped?
