Cover blurb:
The TARDIS lands at the site of a hyperspatial collision between two spacecraft, the Empress and the Hecate. As a result, neither ship is dimensionally stable, risking the lives of all those aboard. The Doctor, K9 and Romana offer to help out.

When a crewmember is found dead, his face lacerated by huge claws, it seems something deadly has been released by the accident. But how is the death linked to the discovery that the killer drug Vraxoin has been smuggled aboard — and where has the supply come from?

The Doctor soon realises that the aliens stored in a projection machine may hold the answers — and that the cages holding these specimens are anything but secure as the savage Mandrels, hideous swamp-creatures from the planet Eden, tear through the corridors of the helpless spaceships...

This engaging story, demonstrating Doctor Who at its most imaginative and inventive, was originally broadcast 24 November - 15 December 1979.

Cover blurb:
The Doctor, Romana and K9 arrive at the scene of a hyperspace collision, but when they attempt to separate the fused ships they suddenly find themselves investigating a smuggling racket. They discover the crash was caused by the Empress' navigator who was under the influence of Vraxoin, the most dangerous, and addictive, drug in the universe. Their problems intensify when they discover one of the ships is carrying a Continuous Event Transmuter. Now damaged, it has caused local space to destabilize and released monstrous Mandrels onto the Empress. The Doctor and company board the passenger ship to help, only to find themselves pursued as the suspected drug smugglers.
