'Hello,' said the Doctor cheerfully. 'I'm the Doctor.' Maxil raised his stasar pistol and shot him down.
On his return to Gallifrey, the Doctor learns that his bio data extract has been stolen from the Time Lords' master computer, the Matrix. The Gallifreyan High Council believes that anti-matter will be infiltrated into the universe as a result of the theft. The information must be rendered useless — the Doctor must die.
First broadcast in 1983, this is the first story since The Three Doctors to feature Omega, a bitter Gallifreyan exiled forever from this universe. This novelization by Terrance Dicks was adapted from the original script by Johnny Byrne.
