Overview
Making a forced materialisation on Chloris, the Doctor, Romana and K9 become embroiled in the political machinations of its ruler, the Lady Adrasta.

The lush vegetation of the planet's surface hides a ragtag group of bandits, a gaint eggshell, man-eating Wolfweeds and, within the depths of an old mining pit, something very large has a terrible secret which threatens the destruction of Chloris itself.

This story was originally broadcast on BBC1 between 27th October - 17th November 1979
