An unabridged reading of this novelisation of a classic 1960s TV adventure for the First Doctor, as played by William Hartnell. Following a skirmish in deep space, two alien spacecraft have crash landed on a barren planet in Galaxy Four. The Drahvins are a race of beautiful females, led by the imperious Maaga. The Rills are hideous tusked monstrosities, accompanied by their robotic servants, the Chumblies. When the Doctor arrives with Vicki and Steven in tow, he discovers that the planet will explode in two days' time.
When the Tardis lands on an arid planet, it seems as though the whole place is desolate and lifeless. But then the Doctor, Steven, and Vicki discover two crashed spaceships: one contains the Drahvins, a race of stunning beauty; the other contains the hideous Rills. However, as the team soon finds out, appearances can be deceptive.
