FRONTIER IN SPACE

THE YEAR IS 2540. TENSIONS ARE ONCE AGAIN rising between the two great spacefaring empires of Earth and Draconia. Each accuses the other of having attacked their cargo vessels, violating boundaries established after their last confrontation 20 years before. When the TARDIS lands the Doctor and Jo Grant inside the hold of Earth cargo ship C-982, an ultra-high-pitched sound causes its crew to see the pair as ‘Dragon’ raiders. In reality, the ship is under attack by brutish Ogrons – but only the Doctor can see the alien assailants as they really are.

With the TARDIS stolen by the Ogrons, the Doctor and Jo find themselves transported to Earth. There, the hawkish General Williams informs the President that he believes the pair to be Draconian agents, sent to sabotage the Earthmen’s preparations for war. The Draconians’ Prince, however, suspects them to be part of a plot concocted by the warmongering Williams. Unable to establish the truth – not even by use of the mind probe – the President invokes special security measures, sending the Doctor to a penal colony on the Moon.

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.
