The Deception Games was the ninth episode (not counting the Christmas Special) of the second series of Doctor Who Rebirth. It takes place immediately after the events of the previous episode, with The Doctor and Gwen arriving at the Shadow Proclamation and learning that The Master (previously revealed as being The Partner all along) has killed the entire Proclamation. The Doctor arrives during the Normandy invasions of Omaha Beach in 1944 and must do his best to stop The Master, and The Daleks.

This episode marks the first part of the finale for Series 2. It also brings the Cult Of Skaro into the Rebirth universe.
