The Beautiful Death is the ultimate theme-park ride: a sightseeing
tour of the afterlife. But something has gone wrong, and when the
Fourth Doctor arrives in the aftermath of the disaster, he is
congratulated for saving the population from destruction –
something he hasn’t actually done yet. He has no choice but to
travel back in time and discover how he became a hero. And then he
finds out. He did it by sacrificing his life.
