The Doctor and Romana (I) are tasked by Colonel Sanders to find six horcruxes in this opener to the season-long ‘Key To Time’ arc
The Doctor is looking forward to some companion-less quality time with new pooch K-9 Mark II, when the whitest of galactic guardians puts the kibosh on their holiday plans and summons the Doctor for a secret, season-long mission to collect the Key To Time.Every now and then the universe must be put to rights and The Guardian is wanting to do just that. Enter the legendary Mcguffin, capable of controlling all of time itself.
For safety, it was divided into six different pieces, and so The Doctor, K-9 and brand new companion, Romana, are off to gather them one by one. The first part is to be found on Ribos, a planet still in a medieval-like era, so Doc and co will need to tread lightly as not to cause any major problems. Alas, two hoodwinking cajolers are plotting to sell the whole planet to their unsuspecting ex-emperor mark, turning a simple search-and-retrieve mission into a poor man’s Catch Me If You Can.
