Romana decides to land the TARDIS herself, a thought that terrifies the 4t h Doctor. When the TARDIS finds itself in the right place, but the wrong planet, is it a case of bad TARDIS piloting, or something very sinister. This was the first Doctor Who story written by Douglas Adams, who went on to write some book series or other that got international attention.
