TERMINUS

UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF THE BLACK GUARDIAN, the Doctor’s new companion, Turlough, sabotages the TARDIS console. However, a fail-safe system locks the TARDIS onto the nearest spacecraft, creating a door that opens directly from Nyssa’s room. The travellers find themselves on an apparently deserted passenger liner, where they’re soon joined by space pirates Kari and Olvir, who have boarded the ship to plunder its cargo.

The ship is following an automated flight plan and, when a Tannoy system announces its arrival at Terminus, the Doctor and Nyssa discover that the liner is actually a leper ship ferrying Lazars, the victims of Lazar’s disease, to a space station medical facility. Separated from the Doctor when they attempt to return to the TARDIS, Nyssa falls ill and is identified as one of the Lazars by a sterilisation drone, which drags her away into Terminus. There, armoured Vanir warriors isolate her with the other Lazars to await treatment, but Olvir follows Nyssa into the station and disguises himself as one of the Vanir in an effort to rescue her.
