For the first time on audio, this is an unabridged reading of a classic Doctor Who novelization based on a serial from the original TV series. The year is 2540, and two powers loom large in the Galaxy: Earth and Draconia. After years of peace, their spaceships are now being mysteriously attacked and cargoes rifled. Each suspects the other, and full-scale war seems unavoidable. The Doctor, accused of being a Draconian spy, is thrown into prison. Only when the Master appears on the scene do things really begin to move.
