Note:Only released separately in the US and Germany. In the UK & Australia, this story was released as part of the Kamelion Tales box set instead. Unusually, one of the extras from the UK/Australian release is not available on this US release (the 25-minute making-of documentary The Flames of Sarn) since it uses background music which was not copyright-clearable in North America.

Cover blurb:
A strange signal from Earth draws the TARDIS to the island of Lanzarote, where Turlough rescues a young American girl, Peri, from drowning. Among her possessions is an artifact bearing an alien symbol — the same triangular mark that Turlough has branded into his arm.

The mystery deepens when Kamelion falls under the control of a powerful mind, and the TARDIS travels to the volcanic world of Sarn. As Turlough is forced to face his past, the Doctor must stop his oldest enemy from harnessing the revitalizing powers of Numismaton gas.
