Cover blurb:
BBC Radio Collection welcomes the Doctor back to Earth for the only new recording in this, his 30th Anniversary year. Included is additional material which had to be cut from the radio broadcast for time reasons.

Jon Pertwee returns as the renegade Time Lord, reunited with Sarah Jane and the Brigadier by author Barry Letts, the producer behind so many of his adventures. And he is facing more danger than ever...

When an horrific and inexplicable death occurs at "Space World", a new theme park on Hampstead Heath, Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart and UNIT are called in to investigate. The Doctor is highly suspicious. Just who controls the Parakon Corporation, the shadowy organisation behind the running of the park? What is "Experienced Reality"? And what are the limits of its awesome powers?

As the mysterious Parakon corporation opens a new theme park, Space World, on Hampstead Heath, the Doctor and UNIT fear that it may be a guise for an altogether darker scheme...
