The 4th Doctor and Adric are asked by the dying Keeper of the union of Traken to root out an evil which is threatening his people. Something is very familiar about this evil, and yet very different. Nyssa is introduced in this story, though she should not be counted as a companion yet, because she does not leave in the TARDIS at the end.
