Cover blurb:
Whilst trying to return Tegan to Heathrow Airport, the Doctor instead lands the TARDIS on a seemingly deserted alien spacecraft, just four days away from its final destination — Earth.

The TARDIS crew discover that the ship isn't as empty as it first appears. On board they find Chinese, Mayan, Greek and Aboriginal crew members — and the alien froglike Urbankans. The Urbankan leader, Monarch, invites the Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric to continue the trip to Earth as his guests.

Monarch has returned to Earth every few thousand years throughout history, but now his intention is to stay for good. The Urbankans want to colonise Earth — but what plans does Monarch have for the future of mankind?

The more the Doctor learns of Monarch's grand scheme, the more unsettled Tegan and Nyssa become. But Adric thinks his friends have got the Urbankans all wrong. Who is the Doctor to trust...?

This story was broadcast on BBC1 between 18 - 26 January 1982.

Cover blurb:
In an attempt to return Tegan to Heathrow Airport, the TARDIS materializes on an alien spacecraft, which appears to have been abandoned just four days before reaching its final destination — Earth.

The Doctor and his companions soon discover that the ship isn't as empty as it first appears. Onboard they find Chinese, Mayan, Greek and Aboriginal passengers — and the froglike Urbankans. The Urbankan leader, Monarch, cordially invites the Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and Adric to continue their trip to Earth as his guests.

Monarch has returned to Earth every few thousand years throughout history, but now he and the Urbankans plan to stay for good and to colonize Earth.

The more the Doctor learns of Monarch's grand scheme, the more anxious Tegan and Nyssa become for the future of mankind. But Adric thinks his friends have got the Urbankans all wrong. Who is the Doctor to trust?
