The Doctor, Romana and K9 face new dangers searching for the second segment to the Key to Time. What has happened to the planet it is hidden on?

Instead of landing on Calufrax as originally intended, they arrive on a different planet and encounter the Mentiads, and the strange Captain.

Broadcast notes:

Outro: Apparently the third segment of the key to time reposes on present day Earth. And next week the tracer will lead The Doctor and Romana to "The Stones of Blood." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
