Check it out. The Doctor using a VR set way before we had a name for them. It is an old yarn, City Of The Damned in the UK, City Of The Cursed in the US. These stories mean so much to me. The pleasing associations with racing to the newsagent to pick up Doctor Who Weekly in yesteryear. I had to race past a bullies house, he had one eye and a speech defect and he troubled me on a daily basis. "NOCNOR WHO" he used to call me before attacking me.
Never dampened my enthusiasm for a second.
