Cover blurb:
The Doctor and Jo land on a cargo ship crossing the Indian Ocean in the year 1926.

Or so they think.

Far away on a planet called Inter Minor, a travelling showman is setting up his live peepshow, watched by an eager audience of space officials...

On board ship, a giant hand suddenly appears, grasps the Tardis and withdraws. Without warning, a prehistoric monster rises from the sea to attack...

What is happening? Where are they? Only the Doctor realises, with horror, that they might be trapped...

Cover blurb:
Programming the TARDIS for a visit to the attractive planet of Metebelis 3, the Doctor and Jo are disappointed to find they've arrived in a cargo ship bound for Singapore. Or so they think. In fact, they are trapped in a time-loop on the far away planet Inter Minor, where all the life-forms of the Galaxy are miniaturised in the Scope — a peepshow for arch-showman Vorg. These life-forms include the terrifying Drashigs — huge underwater dragons who add to the monumental problems the Doctor and Jo face in trying to escape this nightmare circus.
