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?

The search for the 2nd segment of the Key To Time leads the TARDIS to exactly the right place at exactly the right time - but the wrong planet. A good chance to lure in non-fans to watch the show, as this story is written by Douglas Adams, and roads may be closed by snow.
