Cover blurb:
Two classic Doctor Who adventures both featuring the original Master (as played by Roger Delgado) presented on separate tapes in a limited-edition tin box.

Colony in Space:
The Time Lords discover that the Master has stolen secret files that tell the location of one of the most potent weapons of destruction in the universe... The Doctor is summoned out of exile on Earth, and along with his assistant Jo Grant, is sent by the Time Lords on a mission to retrieve the information. Arriving on the planet Uxarieus in the far future, the Doctor discovers a group of Earth colonists whose very existence is under threat due to falling crops and low morale. To make matters worse, the colonists right to be on the planet is disputed by the Interplanetary Mining Corporation, who want the planet to themselves. An adjudicator is summoned from Earth to resolve the dispute, but before the Doctor can start looking for the doomsday weapon, he must first deal with giant lizards, killer robots and deadly primitive tribesmen. And somewhere on the planet is the Master...

Originally transmitted 10 April - 15 May 1971.

The Time Monster:
UNIT are called in to monitor the initial trials of a device called TOMTIT — the Transmission Of Matter Through Interstitial Time — at the Newton Institute at Wootton. Created by the enigmatic Professos Thascales, TOMTIT’s demonstration causes unexpected time anomalies. The Doctor soon discovers that TOMTIT is not all that it seems... At the heart of TOMTIT is an ancient crystal, which the Master hopes to use to gain control over Kronos — a Chronovore which feeds on time itself. But the stone he holds is only part of the sacred crystal of Kronos — the main crystal is hidden... The Doctor and the Master journey back in time to the lost city of Atlantis, where the battle for the control of Kronos intensifies... Can the Doctor prevent the Time Monster from being unleashed...?

Originally transmitted 20 May - 24 June 1972.
