Whatever the threat, whoever the enemy, UNIT is ready to defend the world. 8.1 This Sleep of Death by Jonathan Morris. Abbey Marston. UNIT's dark secret. A place where the laws of space and time, life and death, can be suspended. Where remembering the departed has consequence.

And Kate is most concerned by the identity of the victim. Meanwhile, Sam and Jacqui chase Vikings, while Osgood finds herself out of time.
