Note: Audio adaptation of the Doctor Who TV story originally written for Season 23 of the classic series but abandoned during the infamous 1985 “hiatus” when the programme was rested for 18 months by the BBC. This story was previously novelised in 1989.
With the TARDIS working perfectly, the Doctor and Peri decide to take a holiday. But where? A long-forgotten piece of equipment in the TARDIS storage locker sends them to the peaceful and idyllic continent of Tranquela — home of the Doctor’s old friend Ravlos.
But the land where they emerge is far from peaceful. A hate ray is regularly sweeping Tranquela, turning its inhabitants into savage beasts, and there is only one place it can originate — the planet’s other continent, home of Tranquela’s old enemies, the Amelierans.
Or is that the only place? Because somewhere far above the planet events are watched by the slimy super-salesman, Mordant... who has his own unscrupulous plans.
