SPACE PIRATES LED BY MAURICE CAVEN ARE raiding beacons made from the hugely valuable metal argonite. Blowing each beacon into eight pieces, the pirates use propulsion units to steer them away for salvage.

One such team is ambushed by Caven’s men on Alpha 4, where the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe have also landed.

About Doctor Who Magazine

“Space: the final frontier. Final, because it wants to kill us...” The TARDIS doesn’t just travel through time – stories set in space have been an essential part of Doctor Who for six decades. The inhospitable void between the stars has served as the backdrop to epic space operas and nerve-racking thrillers, while harbouring some of the most dangerous adversaries the Doctor has ever encountered. This lavish publication navigates a revealing course through the space lanes of Doctor Who, with exclusive interviews, rare images, and guides to some of the most memorable episodes.
