SLIPPING FORWARD INTO THE DISTANT FUTURE, the TARDIS arrives in the Veruna system, where some of the last remnants of humanity have sought refuge following the destruction of Earth. Landing on the planet Frontios, the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough find a beleaguered and failing human colony. Forty years previously, the colonists’ ship had crashed there, stranding them with little technology or means of support beyond subsistence farming.

After ten years, the fledgling colony became the target for regular meteorite bombardments, which the humans take to be the attacks of an unknown aggressor with whom they consider themselves at war. Meanwhile, ‘deaths unaccountable’ are occurring, with bodies being dragged underground by some mysterious force. Despite their assistance in the colony’s medical centre, the Doctor and his friends are met with suspicion.
